Take off vertically with a helicopter, or travel quickly with a plane. Electric propulsion allows us to combine these two worlds. Vertical take off and landing (VTOL) aircraft will collect you at a rooftop vertiport, lift off, and then transition to a fast mode of forward flight to take you to your destination in a short time. And they will do this with much less environmental impact than today’s aircraft.
At Dufour Aerospace’s home base in the Swiss Alps, we also intend to revolutionize mountain and rural transport. For example, you can travel from Zurich airport to Zermatt in 30 minutes, instead of the more than 3 hours it takes today by train or car. Or in 22 minutes from Milan instead of driving more than 3 hours.
