German urban air mobility (UAM) pioneer, Volocopter, has completed the first crewed public test flight with its 2X aircraft in Seoul, South Korea. It was the first ever crewed public test flight of a fully electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi in South Korea. The Republic’s Minister for Land, Infrastructure, and Transport (MoLIT) Noh Hyeong Ouk, together with senior officials from Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Korea and German Embassy, witnessed the historical test flight, which marks a milestone in Volocopter’s plan of introducing air taxis globally.

The 5-minute crewed test flight took place at Gimpo International Airport on 11 November 2021, covered a distance of approximately 3 kilometers, reached a maximum altitude of 50 meters and maximum speeds of 45 km/h. The test flight was part of the MoLIT’s UAM demonstration event – ‘Open the Urban Sky’.

Volocopter is building the world’s first sustainable and scalable urban air mobility business to bring affordable air taxi services to megacities worldwide. Together with international partners in infrastructure, operations, and air traffic management, Volocopter is building the ecosystem necessary to ‘Bring Urban Air Mobility to Life’. With the VoloCity, we are pioneering the first fully electric “eVTOL” aircraft in certification to enhance urban mobility around the globe.
