Through relentless determination and strategic collaborations, we've evolved into pioneers of not just airborne wonders but also cutting-edge battery technology.
Volador FlyTech – Journey Timeline: Soaring from Dreams to Reality
Back in the days, our founder Sachin dreamt of something monumental—something in the aerospace realm. The notion of building a flying car struck him as both audacious and novel. Fast forward to 2017, he found myself in a Boeing competition, vying to create personal flying vehicles. We made it to the final stage, and that experience became a cornerstone for what lay ahead.
Gaining Wings in Academia
Between 2017 and 2020, Sachin delved into the academic skies, pursuing an MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design at Cranfield University. Simultaneously, navigating the intricacies of Entrepreneurship Management and Corporate Strategy at the University of Cambridge. These were formative years, nurturing the concept of a flying car, waiting for the right moment.
Volador FlyTech Takes Flight
In 2020, the idea materialised into Volador FlyTech. It wasn’t just about building a machine; it was about transforming dreams into tangible creations. With a team on board, we developed our first proof of concept in 2021, testing and refining the structural foundation.
Scaling Heights and Powering Up
We didn’t stop at the proof of concept. Scaled-down models followed in 2021, rigorously testing our systems. Concurrently, we delved into in-house battery development, realising the significance of having our own power source. These were the years of laying the groundwork for what was to come.
Full-Scale Tests and Beyond
The year 2023 marked the completion of a full-scale testbed, a major milestone in our journey. Simultaneously, our battery tech was proving its mettle in scaled prototypes. The horizon shimmered with the promise of a full-scale MVP, certifications, and the anticipation of what lay beyond.
Diversification and Global Reach
Now, as we look ahead to 2024-2025, our focus is on diversification. Our batteries are not just for flying; they power industries—houses/buildings, maritime, freight, data centers, and more. Our sights are set on the UK and India for the first battery launches. Talks are underway with builders, solar tech manufacturers/distributors, and motorcycle companies for strategic partnerships.
We are on track for the market launch of energy storage technology by 2025 along with early adopters for our eVTOL vehicles especially in the emergency response and logistics sector.
