Skyfly Technologies Ltd. and AeroVolt have announced a new partnership to complete the UK’s first airfield-to-airfield electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) flight with the corresponding charging infrastructure.

This demonstration is scheduled to take place later this year to highlight the ongoing progress in electric aviation.

As part of this initiative, AeroVolt is installing a network of smart chargers across the UK’s airports and aerodromes.

With operational sites already established, alongside plans for expansion, AeroVolt’s infrastructure will facilitate efficient recharging for electric aircraft. This will include the Axe eVTOL developed by Skyfly.

Alan Kingsley-Dobson, COO of AeroVolt said:

AeroVolt is thrilled to support Skyfly in this groundbreaking endeavour. The Axe represents a paradigm shift in personal air mobility, and AeroVolt's charging infrastructure will play a pivotal role in enabling its widespread adoption.

The Axe eVTOL is designed for personal use and has a range of up to 100 miles in fully electric mode and 300 miles in a hybrid configuration. Its four-winged design also enables versatile flight capabilities, combining vertical takeoff and landing with conventional aeroplane operations.

Unlike commercial air taxis, which will operate from dedicated vertiports, the Axe eVTOL will be able to take off and land on private agricultural land such as “farm strips,” without the need for expensive infrastructure.

Michael Thompson, CEO of Skyfly said:

Partnering with AeroVolt signifies a significant leap forward in electric aviation. Our collaboration aims to showcase the viability and potential of eVTOL technology, paving the way for sustainable air travel. We are proud to lead the UK's aviation industry towards a greener future.
