Vertical Aerospace Gets Lift From Virgin Atlantic Partnership UK eVTOL entity Vertical Aerospace has been given a vital boost with a partnership being announced between them and Virgin Atlantic. The partnership does of course entail the purchase of many of the company's VA-X4 eVTOL UAM aircraft...more on that later in the article. The aircraft is said to meet the stringent requirements of the CAA and EASA. With a flat out top speed of 202 mph the VA-X4 will be a nimble craft carrying up to four passengers and the pilot 100 plus miles. It is all electric, therefore no emissions as well as a low noise profile overall. The VA-X4 has four tilting advanced rotors at the front and stowable rotors at the rear. It is set to revolutionize urban mobility and electrify air travel, with certification to the same safety standards as commercial airliners.
