The German company decided to conduct the first tests of a flying taxi in Dubai. The twin 2X is equipped with eighteen motors, which allow it to reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour. On one charge the device can fly up to thirty kilometers.
The government of Dubai consulted with the management of the startup, evaluated the technical characteristics of the aircraft and came to the conclusion that the Volterter's Copters are completely safe and suitable for flights.
In order to fully protect passengers, the 2X has a parachute that will land without loss even if a serious accident occurs, so you will not have to worry about your life and health for those who will use Volocopter services.
Last year, the head of Volocopter Alexander Tsozel personally ran a prototype of a flying taxi and tested the device in various weather conditions, and now his company is already preparing to sign a contract for the provision of passenger transportation services for a period of five years – this is how long the flight tests of Copter will last.
