Avolon CEO Dómhnal Slattery said: “The scale of our ambition for eVTOLs is reflected in our partnerships with some of the leading transportation and airport operators in Latin America.

“We are partnered with companies that share our ambition to materially reshape the commercial aviation market.

“Our objective is to deliver the infrastructure requirements to bring zero emissions travel to Brazil mid this decade and revolutionise air travel in the region.”

The company expects that the introduction of eVTOLs, like the VX4, will transform the transportation of Brazilians.

VX4 will enable short-haul zero emissions journeys which will help in revolutionising the air travel for Brazilians’ everyday lives.

With more than 100 miles range, VX4 is expected to have up to 200 mph of speeds and be near silent when in flight.
