LIFT Launches “World’s First eVTOL Pay-Per-Flight Experience” 

LIFT Air­craft has made his­to­ry with the launch of “the world’s first cus­tomer eVTOL Pay-Per-Flight” expe­ri­ence, reports a press release.

The announce­ment was made dur­ing a live broad­cast flight on the U.S‑based ABC TV last month. As host of Good Morn­ing Amer­i­ca, Rob Mar­ciano, while pilot­ing the LIFT, remarked, “This is amaz­ing! This is the future of per­son­al air trans­porta­tion!”

Fol­low­ing the broad­cast, the com­pa­ny has announced this week the begin­ning of its eager­ly await­ed U.S Tour. This marks an impor­tant mile­stone in the com­pa­ny’s jour­ney “to democ­ra­tise per­son­al flight and rede­fine urban trans­porta­tion.”

LIFT’s “pay-per-flight expe­ri­ence” is now avail­able to the pub­lic. The company’s inau­gur­al mobile loca­tion will be oper­at­ing through until April 28th at Lake­land Lin­der Air­port, home of the Sun ‘N’ Fun Aero­space Expo, where LIFT will also be seen fly­ing in air­shows and allow­ing cus­tomers to fly dur­ing its well-known event (April 9th-14th). Cus­tomer flights are to con­tin­ue in Austin, Texas dur­ing May, with fur­ther expan­sion into addi­tion­al cities to be announced in the near future. 

The release explains, “Any­one can train and fly LIFT’s air­craft, HEXA. The expe­ri­ence, which lasts approx­i­mate­ly 2 hours and includes com­pre­hen­sive ground train­ing, allow­ing cus­tomers to famil­iarise them­selves with the air­craft and its con­trols before fly­ing the air­craft in a vir­tu­al real­i­ty flight sim­u­la­tor, offer­ing a real­is­tic pre­view of what’s next. Once trained, par­tic­i­pants pilot HEXA them­selves, all under the guid­ance of expe­ri­enced flight instruc­tors and all with no pilot’s license required.”
