eVTOL Insights Podcast: Diana Siegel of Electra.aero offers insights into its eSTOL technology and reflects on last 12 months

In this lat­est pod­cast episode, which focus­es on the grow­ing eVTOL air­craft and urban air mobil­i­ty mar­kets, we were delight­ed to be joined by Diana Siegel, Head of Strat­e­gy at Electra.aero.

Electra.aero is a next-gen aero­space com­pa­ny lead­ing the way in sus­tain­able urban and region­al mobil­i­ty. The com­pa­ny is build­ing clean, hybrid-elec­tric, ultra-short take­off and land­ing (eSTOL) air­planes that fly peo­ple and car­go qui­eter, fur­ther, and more afford­ably.

Diana reflects on the last 12 months for Elec­tra, while also telling us what she thought were the main insights for the indus­try as a whole.

We talk about the com­pa­ny’s elec­tric short take-off and land­ing (eSTOL) air­craft, its numer­ous part­ner­ships with com­pa­nies such as Bris­tow Group, Flap­per and Sky­portz, and Diana also reveals some excit­ing invest­ment news!

Elec­tra’s tech­nol­o­gy deliv­ers 2.5x the pay­load and 10X longer range with 70 per cent low­er oper­at­ing costs than ver­ti­cal take­off alter­na­tives with much less cer­ti­fi­ca­tion risk, prov­ing that cli­mate-friend­ly tech­nol­o­gy can also be cost-effec­tive.
