Volatus Infrastructure has signed a memorandum of understanding to work with Indiana-based LEO Flight to provide manufacturing support for its wireless VertiStop charging technology, and to supply its vertiport infrastructure.
“Volatus is honoured to fulfil LEO’s eVTOL infrastructure needs and to partner on its VertiStop charging technology to help bring a complete charging solution to the industry,” said Grant Fisk, Volatus Infrastructure co-founder.
LEO Flight co-founder Carlos Salaff added: “Our partnership with Volatus seamlessly blends the freedom and speed of the LEO Coupe flying car with the assurance of widespread, convenient charging points.
“The LEO Flight VertiStop is a compact fast-charging and landing platform that can be rapidly put into service on existing rooftops and parking areas, to create instant infrastructure for LEO Coupe travel.”
LEO Flight Corporation claims to be the world’s first electric jet flying car company with its LEO Coupe eVTOL flying car. Designed for personal ownership, it is an “ideal large-scale transportation solution for densely-populated areas.”
The anticipated LEO Coupe will feature no exposed propellers, 200 mph cruise speed and a 250 mile range, which “represents a major step forward in the development of Jetsons-era mobility.”
In February, LEO Flight formed a ‘strategic alliance’ with aerospace manufacturer Eagle Technologies to develop flying cars with no exposed propellers. The LEO Coupe is said to be the world’s premier fully-electric eVTOL flying car designed for personal ownership.
Last month, Volatus Infrastructure signed a memorandum of understanding with Australian-based Ace VTOL for both companies to help expand opportunities in the rapidly growing eVTOL market. As part of the agreement, Volatus is Ace VTOL’s preferred infrastructure provider.
