  1. New Volocopter Flies Over Incheon Airport South Korea
    Yesterday Volocopter flew its eVTOL over South Korea Incheon Airport. German urban air mobility (UAM) pioneer, Volocopter, conducted a crewed public test flight in front of hundreds of spectators at Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea. As part of the 2021 K-UAM Confex, the 5-minute flight trial covered approximately 3 kilometers and reached a maximum altitude of 50 meters and a maximum speed of 45 km/h. One week earlier, on 11 November, the air taxi company completed a public test flight at Gimpo International Airport. It was the first-ever crewed public test flight of an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) air taxi in the Republic of Korea.
  2. "We are very excited to have flown our air taxi in South Korea not once, but twice in the last week, which is great to increase public awareness on urban air mobility. As a new mode of transport, air taxis complement the existing mobility solutions and let people reach their destinations faster and more comfortably in megacities such as Seoul." Volocopter is the first and only eVTOL company globally to have obtained both design and production organization approvals from European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The next assignment for Volocopter is displaying its VoloCity to the public at the CoMotion LA event in Los Angeles, USA, and the European Rotors event in Cologne, Germany, both of which take place from 16-18 November.
