Alauda Aeronautics, the creator and technical team behind Airspeeder, has announced a successful conclusion of its 250th Test Flight for the eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) Alauda Mk3 machine.
The world’s first racing series for flying electric cars has already completed a historic first drag race between two eVTOL Alauda Mk3 machines played in the deserts of South Australia at the start of the year and has announced the first pilots for the electric flying car series.
Now, in preparation for the inaugural EXA remotely piloted Grand Prix season, this latest successful test means the series is ever closer as a pre-cursor for the world’s first crewed electric flying car races.
“For an industry predicted to be worth $1.5trillion by 2040 we are proving the application of this truly world-changing technology. This is just the beginning and we can’t wait to introduce the world to this true next generation motorsport,” commented Matt Pearson, CEO of Alauda Aeronautics & Airspeeder.
At the heart of Alauda Aeronautics ethos is ground breaking technology that includes the ‘development and testing of Pilot Control stations, Engineer control stations, Race control stations, V2V Communications, Flight Zone mapping and tracking, Digital Sky Gates and more’.
According to the Alauda Aeronautics press release, Telstra Purple in partnership with Amazon Web Services are already working with Alauda’s engineers to provide remote connectivity solutions utilising 5G technology to drive the suite of technologies that will deliver safe racing and the ability to broadcast and stream to a global audience in real time.
Alauda Aeronautics’ Technical Leadership Team is drawn from the greatest minds of the tech, automotive and aeronautical industries including IWC Schaffhausen, Ferrari, McLaren, Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls Royce, Boeing and Airbus. It is the first in the world to be in production with performance electric flying cars.
