  1. Air One Demonstrator Transitions From Hover To Forward Flight
    The Air One personal eVTOL has now successfully completed its first transitionary test flight -meaning it moved from hover to forward flight for the first time-. At approximately 3:00PM Israel time on December 18th, AIR's full-scale AIR ONE prototype, loaded to full capacity of 1100kg (2425lbs), took off and transitioned to its nominal cruising speed. This is a major milestone for the company as it now looks towards Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conforming testing. Although the aircraft has been in testing for a while this is the start of the decisive testing.
  2. Rani Plaut, CEO and co-founder of AIR, commented: "It is thrilling to have reached this moment in our journey as we strive to build the foundation to make personal air mobility a reality. AIR is incredibly proud to play a role in the global AAM movement, and we're looking forward and upward to 2024 when adoption of privately-owned eVTOLs takes flight." The company has been conducting its testing in Israel but expects to transition to the United States for the remainder of the decisive testing under the watchful eye of the FAA. On a single charge the Air One personal eVTOL is promising speeds of up to 155 mph.
