Ace VTOL and Neurobotx launch eVTOL on Metapilot

Ace VTOL has joined forces with Neu­ro­botx, the Boe­ing-fund­ed launch­pad for emerg­ing air­taxis, to unveil the Trin­i­ty eVTOL, designed to address the grow­ing demand for effi­cient and sus­tain­able urban trans­porta­tion solu­tions, which com­bines the exper­tise of Ace VTOL in air­craft man­u­fac­tur­ing with the advanced soft­ware capa­bil­i­ties of Metapi­lot.

Called a ‘Pas­sen­ger Drone’ accord­ing to founder and CEO Brett Northey, Ace VTOL’s advan­tage is its lift­ing body design and for­ward entry that cre­ates a con­sid­er­ably larg­er cab­in space.

On top of this, the com­pa­ny claims to be the first wheel­chair-friend­ly VTOL on the mar­ket. This col­lab­o­ra­tion has result­ed in the devel­op­ment of a tru­ly remark­able air­craft that offers enhanced safe­ty, ver­sa­til­i­ty, and reli­a­bil­i­ty.

The most excit­ing aspect of this part­ner­ship is the inte­gra­tion of Metapi­lot’s cut­ting-edge soft­ware tech­nol­o­gy into the Trin­i­ty eVTOL, which comes with a low earth orbit satel­lite-host­ed blockchain and AI flight man­age­ment sys­tem with a vir­tu­al real­i­ty (VR) pilot inter­face.

Metapi­lot’s pro­pri­etary VR game with over 200 busi­ness part­ners world­wide and the world top VR game res­o­lu­tion and reg­u­la­tor-approved data, com­bined with advanced arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence algo­rithms, ele­vate the Trin­i­ty eVTOL’s capa­bil­i­ties.

The soft­ware enhances pilot assis­tance, opti­mis­es flight paths, and ensures an unpar­al­leled lev­el of safe­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty. Fur­ther­more, users will have access to an array of inno­v­a­tive fea­tures such as build­ing their own ver­sion of Trin­i­ty, test­ing it, com­ment­ing on it, rac­ing it against oth­er mod­els and even get­ting access to the real air­craft.

Last month, rotor-less AAM vehi­cle man­u­fac­tur­er JetX teamed up with Boe­ing-backed gam­ing plat­form Metapi­lot to bring the Vec­tor air taxi to the vir­tu­al world.
