Volocopter Completes First Ever Public Crewed eVTOL Test Flight at EAA AirV

Volocopter flew its 2X eVTOL aircraft at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture 2021 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin July 27, 2021. The flight was the first ever public crewed test flight of a fully electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi in the US.

The crewed Volocopter 2X took off at 2:45 PM CST for a 4-minute flight over Wittman Regional Airport as part of EAA’s AirVenture aviation celebration. Event attendees were able to watch the Volocopter 2X fly and take a seat in the VoloCity model at Volocopter’s booth to experience these aircraft.

Footage of the crewed test flight can be found here on Volocopter’s website.
