The Future Is Here - Personal Electric Helicopter - First Manned Flight
The future is here: First manned flight of the Volocopter, a personal electric helicopter that could revolutionize personal transportation.
The Volocopter is a Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft.
It flies like a helicopter, but is safer and simpler.
It has 18 rotors powered by separate batteries, which makes it vibration free, quiet and safe.
Inventors of the Volocopter VC-200 say their emissions-free aircraft will one day become as ubiquitous as
cars on the road.
Speed: 100 km/h (62 mph).
Max altitude: 6,500 feet.
Take-off weight: 450 kg (992 lb)
The initial two-seat design uses battery packs, with a flight-time duration of about 20 to 30 minutes,
which gives it a range of 35-50 km (20-30 miles) between charges.
The first official manned flight for the aircraft was made by e-volo managing director Alexander Zosel
on March 30, 2016 at an airfield in Germany.
