Vertical Aerospace is building technology to revolutionise how people fly; making air travel personal, on-demand and carbon free.

Since the company's inception in 2016, Vertical Aerospace has grown to over 70 world-class engineers and technical experts, recruited from the likes of Airbus, Boeing, Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover.
In 2019 Vertical Aerospace launched its second aircraft, the Seraph, making it the first company in the world to release flight footage of an aircraft capable of carrying 250kg. 
The Company also acquired Vertical Advanced Engineering, who will focus on applying the latest technologies and agile processes from F1 to the development of eVTOL aircraft.
This demonstrator aircraft was designed and developed by a team of six engineers at Vertical Aerospace to prove the concepts of eVTOL technology.  It proved that they could rapidly design and build a full scale aircraft - and successfully fly it.
The craft was granted flight permission by the Civil Aviation Authority, and it's first test flight was at Cotswold Airport in Kemble, Gloucestershire in 2018 as part of the flight test programme.
The Seraph was built to test new technologies and systems for integration into our upcoming passenger model, due to be unveiled next year. 
The aircraft is capable of carrying loads of up to 250kg and can reach speeds of up to 80kmh.
It features a unique passive cooling system, and a customisable design, meaning the aircraft can be made larger or smaller, fitted with wheels or floats to facilitate water landings.
