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.
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.
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.
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.
Mechanical Engineering researchers are exploring the potential of rechargeable batteries in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, which could transform transportation in metropolitan areas and battle emissions, congestion, and air pollution.
Meet Emily Duggan, Fabio Tischler and Zephatali Walsh. They will race Speeders in the Airspeeder and EXA race series in 2022 and beyond.
In this Taking Flight episode we investigate how Alauda Aeronautics engineers are implementing new battery access designs, First Person View (FPV) capabilities and weight-saving measures for the Alauda Mk3C.
5G communications between eVTOL race Speeders and our Alauda Aeronautics engineers at race control is critically important to making the first electric flying racing car series a reality.
In this update, we dive into the life of the Alauda Aeronautics engineering and design team during the month of October. The mission: get two Alauda Mk3 Speeders flying simultaneously.
Together with Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Bauhaus Luftfahrt e.V., DLR has investigated the overall system of a hybrid-electric short-haul aircraft for up to 100 passengers.
In Airspeeder’s first-ever EXA Series pre-season test race - known as the EXA Drag Race - two remotely-flown Alauda Aeronautics Mk3 Speeders are pitched in a battle of pure speed down a 300m drag strip.
Ever wondered what happens during a test flight for our eVTOL race vehicles?
With the first remotely-flown electric flying car race in Airspeeder’s EXA Series just on the horizon, we follow Alauda Aeronautics’ Operations Manager, Renee Frazer as she scouts out future race locations for eVTOL motorsport events in the Flinders Range in South Australia.
Immersive virtual reality flight simulators with 360-degrees of full, unlimited rotation in all axes - the Eight360 Nova - are just one of the many training tools we use in our Pilot Academy.
