AIR and FlyOnE Partner for Personal eVTOL Adoption in Australia
by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby
Consumer eVTOL creator AIR announced today the formation of a partnership with Australian green transport pioneer and leading electric aircraft supplier FlyOnE. The new partnership will also see the launch of the AIR Brand Ambassador (ABA) program, providing strategic partners around the world with the ability to share the freedom of personal flight with their communities.
Per the partnership, FlyOnE will act as AIR’s local service and maintenance partner, overseeing the delivery of 25 of the first AIR ONE vehicles to customers in 2025. FlyOnE will serve as the first official AIR Brand Ambassador, a role that will see the company lay the groundwork for the mass adoption of personal air vehicles in Australia.
As opposed to the Urban Air Mobility industry’s development of air taxis for commercial use, AIR’s AIR ONE vehicle will provide individual consumers with access to flight for their daily travels. The AIR ONE is a fully electric two-seater eVTOL with a range of 110 miles on a single charge, able to reach speeds of up to 155 miles per hour. The vehicle is able to take off and land on any flat surface.
“We are thrilled to expand our reach to Australia, a trailblazing market with very high growth potential, with the help of such a forward-thinking partner as FlyOnE,” said AIR CEO and Co-founder Rani Plaut. “As we continue to discuss future potential brand ambassadorships around the world, we believe FlyOnE’s dedication to electric aviation adoption on all levels will significantly impact public acceptance of personal eVTOLs and help the industry take flight.”
AIR is working alongside manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and other key industry players on its AIR Brand Ambassador program in an effort to generate interest in personal air mobility across the globe. The company believes the combination of the AAM industry’s innovation and the foresight of early adopters is essential for public acceptance of eVTOLs.
“At FlyOnE, we believe that AIR’s vehicle and mission align perfectly with our own, which is why we’re excited to facilitate their entry into the Australian market and serve as an AIR Brand Ambassador,” said FlyOnE CEO and founder Korum Ellis. “We are committed to being at the forefront of the electric aviation industry in Australia, and the personal eVTOL adoption process will play a key role in its growth over the next few years.”
