EvFly, a Singapore-based fleet-management and air-transport company that manages and operates new-generation electric eVTOL aircraft and advanced air mobility (AAM) services, has signed a letter of intent with the German-based FAST Group to provide flight simulators for EvFly pilot training and customers.
FAST Group executive board member Till Borngräber commented: “I am very pleased to name EvFly as one of FAST Group’s core partners in the eVTOL industry. EvFly promises to lead the industry as one of the first eVTOL commercial operators and they share our aim for the highest degree of safety and efficiency.
“We are proud to help them achieve this goal with our flight simulation training devices and pilot training concepts. Our joint venture will lay the foundation for many safe and promising eVTOL flights.”
By using mixed-reality technology, pilot training will be improved in terms of safety, efficiency and time.
EvFly founder and CEO Yannick Erbs added: “By choosing to partner with FAST Group, we know that we are opting for the best in terms of flight simulators and training solutions, as its main objective is to further improve the efficiency and quality of training by providing us with the best customised solutions.”
FAST Group’s eVTOL Flight Simulator is fitted with a motion platform for increased realism. Due to its compact design, it is not only easy to ship but also to install and maintain. Roll-off/Roll-on capabilities ensure cockpit interchangeability to increase flexibility.
EvFly specialises in fleet management and operations for the new generation of eVTOL aircraft. The company is at the forefront of developing services in the field of Advance Air Mobility (AAM). This partnership between EvFly and FAST-Group is undoubtedly a major step forward for the future of the eVTOL industry.
Last month, China-based AutoFlight announced that EvFly would purchase 205 Prosperity 1 passenger eVTOL and Cargo Aircraft, the first 10 of which will be flown in the Middle East in countries like the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
