With a delicate balance of soft forms and attention to detail, its physically sculpted design seeks to minimise drag and noise making it highly efficient with cruise speeds of 150 mph and a usable range of 100 miles.

VA-1X will be taken through certification with EASA in Europe and is on course to start commercial flights in 2024. Build will begin shortly, with manufacturing taking place in the UK.
