Ascendance Flight Technologies


Ascendance Flight Technologies wants to lead the mobility market from 10 to 200km range by offering a cheap, silent and eco-friendly air mobility solution. Micro-mobility has been a solution for very short trips, we’re bringing the answer for the other trips - the longer ones. We will offer a new mobility service that will impact how people move and live.

We developed a Hybrid Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) technology to fit the user needs and we backed them with thorough scientific work.

It's not our first pioneering aircraft project as we’ve been part of the E-FAN at Airbus that made history on July 2015 by becoming the first ever electrical airplane to cross the English Channel.

Get ready for take-off and come fly with us!

Atea is a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft with hybrid propulsion designed to address the urban and peri-urban air mobility.

Our unique VTOL concept will offer best-in-class performances with enough range to not only connect transportation and business hubs to cities but also connect remote places. Our aircraft will be able to blend into existing infrastructures and regulations to ease its deployment and maximise social acceptance with limited noise and carbon footprint.

As our aircraft will be a lot cheaper to operate compared to a helicopter, we will be able to drive down aerial transportation prices from several thousand euros to a taxi's price. Hence, people benefitting from aerial transportation will not only be the richest anymore but the masses will be able to use this transportation without lowering quality of life of people underneath.
