AutoFlight Announces a Major Commercial Deal with EVFLY to Supply 205 eVTOL Aircraft

AutoFlight, a global pioneer in eVTOL technology, has announced a contract with Middle Eastern company EVFLY for the purchase of 205 Prosperity I and Prosperity Cargo Aircraft. EVFLY will operate the first 10 AutoFlight Cargo aircraft in the region, initially in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, with further deployments planned in Asia and Africa. This partnership marks a significant milestone in the nascent eVTOL industry and demonstrates AutoFlight’s commitment to the Middle East region. The deal is supported by EVFLY’s comprehensive fleet management service, integrating the latest technology for eVTOL maintenance and operational efficiency.

AutoFlight President Omer Bay-Yohay said, “This is a fantastic deal and illustrates just a few of the many geographies that will benefit from eVTOLs in both cargo and personal mobility.” EVFLY’s founder and CEO, Yannick Erbs, added, “AutoFlight has a proven aircraft, as demonstrated by their world record flight and thousands of additional flight test miles. They are a natural choice for EVFLY, as both parties will bring expertise to the nascent eVTOL cargo and passenger markets.”

The announcement follows AutoFlight’s recent record-breaking 250km all-electric flight on a single charge of the aircraft’s lithium-ion batteries. The flight was conducted at AutoFlight’s eVTOL testing facility and featured 20 circuits on a predefined flight track. The plane was remotely piloted from the ground by AutoFlight’s Flight Test team and the distance flown was recorded and verified on ForeFlight, an independent system widely used in the aviation sector.
