Airspace Experience Technologies (ASX) and Spirit AeroSystems have announced they have entered into a definitive agreement to cooperate on the creation of affordable, certified all-electric, vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, the company said.
The program aims to converge automotive mass production techniques with the reliability of commercial-grade aerospace. The path to delivering low-cost aircraft systems starts with engineering services, then parts fabrication, and finally system integration supporting the launch of ASX´s all-electric eVTOL aircraft, the MOBi-One. ASX is enlisting the proven expertise of Spirit, a top supplier of structures, such as fuselages and wing components, to the world´s premier commercial and defense aircraft manufacturers.
Spirit AeroSystems Inc. designs and builds aerostructures for both commercial and defense customers. Spirit operates sites in the US, UK, France and Malaysia.
