    About the employer

    We are mobility’s new dimension. What do we offer? A way to skip those traffic jams and get to your destination with time to spare. As the pioneer of urban air mobility (UAM), we will be launching the world’s first-ever eVTOL suite of services, replete with our signature passenger air taxis, heavy-lift cargo drones, and its very own ecosystem. As far as we’re concerned, the sky really is the only limit!

    We always like to take things a step – or many steps – further. For instance, we’ve known ever since we built our very first prototype that it would be a game changer. And by consistently designing and producing our all-electric VoloCity air taxis and VoloDrones and the eVTOL ecosystem to match, we are poised to change mobility as we know it. And we’ll make every leg of your journey sustainable, too. Get ready for a new kind of urban lifestyle!
