VA-X4 has been designed to be a high performing aircraft, able to connect entire regions as well as carrying out shorter missions across single cities.  

Capable of carrying five people, a pilot and four passengers, VA-X4 is set to be one of the world’s first certified all-electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft and is on course to certify in 2024, starting commercial services shortly afterwards.  

Safe

Safety is at the heart of Vertical Aerospace and comes before anything else. VA-X4 will be flown by experienced pilots and certified through the CAA and EASA, the most stringent global regulator, at the same safety levels that we have all come to rightly expect from commercial airlines.

Experience

The interior of VA-X4 was designed to create an unparalleled passenger experience. Offset side doors allow you to enter and exit the aircraft with ease. There is plenty of room for luggage in both a separate compartment and by your seat. 

Once seated you can enjoy the space which the campfire style seating provides, with an enhanced airy experience provided by the above skylight. Sizeable windows further provide extraordinary views as you see your city through a new perspective. Charging points allow you to work whilst travelling and information screens will keep you up to date on your journey’s progress. 

Completely Emission Free

Sustainability is at the forefront of everything Vertical Aerospace works on. Not only is VA-X4 completely emission-free, with no fumes or contaminants from combustion products, it will also be powered by renewable energy where possible. 

Vertical Aerospace also strives to set the highest ethical and environmental standards. We work with our suppliers to ensure that VA-X4 has a truly sustainable supply chain.  

Quiet

VA-X4 has been designed with noise reduction in mind. Using distributed propulsion and large open rotors, that have significantly lower tip speeds than on a helicopter, VA-X4 can achieve noise levels 100 times quieter than a helicopter and blends into inner-city background noise in cruise. 

120 Mile Range

VA-X4 is exceptionally aerodynamically efficient, able to fly with far less energy than a helicopter would need. With cruise speeds of over 200 mph and a 120 mile range, you could travel from central London to Heathrow in under 15 minutes, compared to an hour and a half by taxi.

With the launch of the VA-X4, we’re proud to be taking eVTOL one step closer to mass-market adoption, and supporting the next era of aviation.
