The four-​seater electric aircraft “e-​Sling”, which was developed by ETH students, has taken flight for the first time. The student project has taken two years and a lot of dedication.

The e-Sling electric aircraft takes off

DLR supports new test flight programme by Airbus and its subsidiary Airbus UpNext for CO2-emission-free flight. The 'Blue Condor' project investigates the effects of contrails from hydrogen engines.

Analysing the contrails of the future

New Airspeeder EXA pilot Fabio Tischler AKA @fabreezy has been training hard in our Speeder flight simulator, in preparation for his first-ever flight test in the field.

How to Learn to Fly a Racing eVTOL in the Simulator - Fabio Tischler

Alauda Aeronautics and Airspeeder Founder and CEO Matt Pearson looks back on the successes of 2021 and early 2022: from our partnerships with IWC and Telstra, to our EXA Series Drag Race and recruitment of our first pilots.

Getting ready for Airspeeder's eVTOL racing in 2022 - Alauda Aeronautics

Alauda Aeronautics Embedded Software Engineer Florian Breut runs through the steps to validate the new control layouts: through simulation, smaller drones and then in full-scale integration with the Mk3C in flight and race testing environments.

How do you control an eVTOL racing vehicle? - Alauda Aeronautics Taking Flight

In this episode, the Alauda engineering team implements improvements to our Global Navigation Satellite Systems or GNSS. What is GNSS? More popularly known as GPS, we need these navigation systems to track the exact positions of racing Alauda Mk3Cs.
