ASX and Spirit AeroSystems aim to create all-electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft

Airspace Experience Technologies (ASX), an aviation technology start-up, and Spirit AeroSystems, a global aircraft design and manufacturing company, have signed a memorandum of understanding and a definitive agreement to cooperate on creation of an affordable, certified all-electric, vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

"Our partnership with Spirit aims to deliver simple, safe and robust electric VTOL aircraft that are accessible to the mass traveling public,” said Jon Rimanelli, CEO and co-founder of ASX.

The path to delivering low-cost aircraft systems starts with engineering services, then parts fabrication, and finally system integration supporting the launch of ASX's all-electric eVTOL aircraft, the MOBi-One.
