CAA claimed that countries and continents worldwide should have a uniform standard for safety to maintain high level of safety, reduce industry costs and helps to UK eVTOL industry into global market.

It is said that the VX4, which is co-invented by Vertical Aerospace and GKN Aerospace, plans to be in operation in 2025. GKN offers aerofoil and electrical wiring system to VX4.The prototype for flight test is being assembled in Global Technology Centre in Bristol.

各国和各大洲统一安全标准有助于保持高安全水平、降低行业成本,符合行业整体利益;也有利于英国eVTOL行业进入全球市场。

据悉,英国Vertical航空与GKN航空合作研发的eVTOL飞机VX4计划2025年投入运营,GKN为VX4提供机翼和电气布线系统,试飞原型机正在GKN位于英国布里斯托尔的全球技术中心组装。

The experiment commenced in 2016, making use of the distributed electric propulsion system.It is equipped with 2 60-kilowatt motors and 12 small foldable propellers, powered by two lithium-ion battery packs weighing about 180 kilograms. It is reported that NASA will develop a 9-seat electric general aircraft demonstrator in the future, and plans to launch a hybrid electric propulsion regional aircraft demonstrator in 2026, which will have 60 to 90 seats.

该实验项目于2016年启动,采用分布式电推进系统,配备2个60千瓦的电机及12个可折叠小型螺旋桨,由2个重约180千克的锂离子电池组供电。据悉,NASA后续将研发9座级电动通用飞机验证机,并计划在2026年推出60-90座级混合电推进支线飞机验证机。
