VOLARE GmbH, an Austrian Start-Up, develops a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft under the registered trademark APELEON. Our aircraft connects rural areas to city hotspots. Ground-based transport can no longer keep up. Traffic-infrastructure is incredibly costly, causes land and forest damage and is no longer scalable. Our fast-flying vehicle requires significantly less infrastructure and bypasses the dense inbound and outbound traffic in large cities and their suburbs using direct air routes. Our aircraft concept gives rise to a sustainable mobility solution and contributes to the achievement of international climate goals. Founded in October 2017, we are working with demonstrators in various scales to test and evaluate the functionality and safety of our aircraft concept. The team has several years of experience in the aviation industry under their belt - having worked on well-known aircraft projects such as Airbus A380, Boeing B787, Eurocopter EC135 or even special projects like Solar Impulse. Together, we are working towards a brighter mobility future.
