Airbus will continue development of its CityAirbus eVTOL despite impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

eVTOL.com Airbus plans to continue development of its CityAirbus eVTOL despite the far-reaching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on its larger business.

The CityAirbus multicopter is a fully electric, 2.2-tonne air taxi prototype that made its first tethered take-off in May 2019 and began free flight testing at the end of the year. Like its tilt-wing predecessor, Vahana, CityAirbus is being used to gather insights that will inform the development of future eVTOL models.
