EvFly partners with eVTOL flight simulator leader FAST Group

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.
