  1. Airspeeder MK4 Unveiled By Alauda Aeronautics
    The development of eVTOL's are constantly in the news nearly every day but for the majority of the time these are either autonomous or future-piloted craft that will end-up serving the bourgeoning forthcoming air-taxi market. These will not be express fast but designed to get you closer to your destination faster, efficiently and significantly more environmentally friendly. Then steps in a company called Alauda Aeronautics. They have been working on an eVTOL they called the Airspeeder Mk3 that was a full-sized 'flying car' that flew at 75 mph. This time the company has unveiled the MK4 that is more designed to compete and is trying to take motorsport (Formula 1 type racing) airborne.
  2. The Airspeeder MK4 is proposed to be capable of a top-end of 225 mph. This eVTOL is more set-up to be a racecar that operated off the ground rather than your traditional slower passenger-carrying eVTOL. It has a massive 1,340 horse power to be released. What is different about this craft besides being a racecar that flies is that it has a Thunderstrike Hydrogen Turbogenerator which provides power to the batteries and motors...yes Hydrogen fuel. This is bringing a different side to power generation to the eVTOL world, H2eVTOL.
  3. "You will see these technologies on the racetrack. However, eVTOLs are already a trillion-dollar industry and we see a very substantial market for private flying cars emerging in the near future. In conventional aerospace, there are about as many private jets as there are commercial jets in operation," says Matt Pearson, CEO, Alauda Aeronautics. "Once we can sell you a flying car for the same price as a Tesla, you'll quickly see the balance shift…the potential for people to own and drive their own flying car one day is absolutely enormous. It's a very exciting time." Alauda Aerospace plans to begin flight testing the Mk4 chassis and powertrain, including the first crewed flights of the airframe, in the first quarter of 2023. The aircraft will be ready to take the start line at the Airspeeder Racing Championship in 2024.
