  1. VoltAero Breaks Ground On Massive Final Assembly Plant
    VoltAero is pleased to announce that construction has started on their final assembly plant for its Cassio-family of electric-hybrid aircraft. This is an important step to allowing the company to transition from flight testing and development to scaling-up to fulfil current and future orders for the aircraft family. The site for the final assembly facility is located at Rochefort Airport in the Charente-Maritime department of France’s Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.
  2. This 2,400-square-meter facility will serve as the build-up site and delivery center for VoltAero’s all-new product line of Cassio general aviation/regional aircraft. It positions VoltAero at a strategic location in southwest France with a dynamic economy and an established presence of industry – including the aviation sector. Construction is now underway, with the facility’s completion targeted for August 2024. It will incorporate the final assembly line, a workshop, logistics area and the design/engineering offices. At full rate, VoltAero anticipates producing approximately 150 Cassio family aircraft per year. Below you can see the groundbreaking ceremony with requisite officials.
  3. The facility isn't just any facility it is being built with high-efficiency and sustainability in mind. Aligned with VoltAero’s strategy of introducing Cassio as a highly eco-efficient multi-role aircraft, the company’s Rochefort Airport industrial facility has been conceived with a focus on sustainability. In addition to meeting or exceeding the requirements of France’s RT 2005 regulations for energy-efficient buildings, the project management team went further with features that include a mixed concrete/wood structural design and the use of wooden floors where appropriate, along with rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic panels for electrical power. If you are building more environmentally friendly aircraft then your facility should match these credentials.
