About

Founded by Stephen Fitzpatrick, CEO of OVO, Vertical Aerospace is building technology to revolutionise how people fly, by making air travel personal, on-demand and carbon free. Since 2016, Vertical Aerospace has grown to over 100 world-class engineers and technical experts, recruited from the likes of Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover. In 2019 they launched their second prototype aircraft, the Seraph, capable of carrying 250kg and reaching speeds of 80km/h. They also acquired Vertical Advanced Engineering, who will focus on applying the latest technologies and agile processes from F1 to the development of eVTOL aircraft.
