Bristol based tech firm reveals first footage of flying taxi 'Seraph' from Wales testing sit

Bristol-based startup Vertical Aerospace has revealed flight footage of its electric flying taxi 'Seraph' following successful testing at Llandedr Airfield in Wales. 

The small aircraft is capable of carrying up to 250kg. 

Vertical Aerospace can boast being the UK’s first eVTOL aircraft to be granted flight permission by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The company says that 'Seraph' was built to test new technologies and systems for integration into Vertical Aerospace’s upcoming passenger model, due to be unveiled next year. 

The aircraft is capable of carrying loads of up to 250kg and can reach speeds of up to 80km per hour. 

It features a unique passive cooling system and a customisable design, meaning the aircraft can be made larger or smaller, fitted with wheels or floats to facilitate water landings. 

Stephen Fitzpatrick, founder and CEO of Vertical Aerospace, said: "Air travel is one of the worst contributors to climate change, and among the slowest sectors to decarbonise. Our mission at Vertical Aerospace is to make personal, on demand and carbon free flight a reality.”
