Ascendance, manufacturer of hybrid eVTOL aircraft, has teamed up with Helipass, a helicopter flight experience booking platform to jointly build the future of regional air mobility.
This new collaboration will enable Ascendance to offer Helipass users a sustainable, low-carbon alternative, thereby enhancing the appeal of the platform to a broader customer base. With ATEA, its hybrid eVTOL airplane, Ascendance offers up to 80% carbon emissions reduction, 50% less operating costs and 75% less noise than aircraft running on conventional fuel, with a useful range of 400km, compared to a traditional helicopter.
“We’re proud to announce our collaboration with Helipass,” said Thibault Baldivia, Chief Commercial Officer for Ascendance. “It allows us to develop our partner ecosystem and work with a leading player in helicopter flying experiences to promote the capabilities of our eVTOL aircraft in this segment. It’s also a way to market and help make our eVTOL model available to operators and the public.”
“This partnership with Ascendance is a chance for us to offer our users new, more environmentally friendly ways to travel,” added Frédéric Aguettant, CEO of Helipass. “By proposing these unique eVTOL model on our platform, we’re continuing our push into the new era of carbon-free flying.”
Available to order, the ATEA aircraft will soon be marketed and progressively bookable on the Helipass platform.
