In this week’s podcast episode we were delighted to welcome back Vertical Aerospace and speak to Dean Moore and Tim Williams.

Dean is the company’s Lead Flight Test Engineer and leading the flight test campaign for its first certifiable eVTOL aircraft, the VA-X4, while Tim is Chief Engineer and responsible for leading its development.

The pair update us about ongoing developments at the UK firm and also provide excellent insight into a host of topics, including the main factors that need to be considered when designed an eVTOL and the challenges that have to be addressed along the certification route.

They also tell us what the company’s projected roadmap is looking like for the rest of the year, and hint at whether any of their future eVTOL aircraft could be autonomously piloted one day.
