Canadian eVTOL developer Limosa has concluded a framework agreement on the supply of crash-safety seating systems with Germany’s Autoflug.
According to Limosa, a significant reason for the decision is the low weight and slimline design of the Flyweight seat family developed by Autoflug.
In addition, Limosa has chosen a seat that has already finished qualification and is available on the market and will also serve the needs for its 1+7-seater all-electric aircraft, meaning it is saving time and money in the development phase.
Various options within the Flyweight seat family enable optimal use of the cabin. As a result, the cabin layout can be adjusted to suit various missions of customers flight operations in a matter of minutes thanks to the quick and easy installation and removal of individual seats as well as the foldable Flyweight Up seat.
The first delivery for the Limosa Limoconnect is scheduled for 2028 with a design that includes vertical takeoff and landing, as well as conventional flying. The Limosa LimoConnect concept, that initially envisage flight operations taking place with a pilot, are banking on autonomous flight as soon as this becomes possible.
“We believe that we have to think of interior of our aircraft as soon as possible in order to configure the aircraft for different applications and mission capabilities. Seats are one of the main parts of the interior, and we are so delighted to partner with Autoflug who, in addition to having an innovative range of lightweight seats, meets all our requirements,” said Dr. Hamid Hamidi, Limosa CEO.
“In Limosa, we have been able to get another big player in the field of eVTOL technology for our Flyweight seats. We are looking forward to this exciting project and cooperation in the coming years,” says Martin Kroell, CEO of Autoflug.
