Vertical Aerospace has achieved a milestone with the successful test flight of its VX4 eVTOL. According to Vertical Aerospace, the program is expected to continue for several months, completing different stages that will involve reaching higher altitudes and speeds and demonstrating the transition from vertical to horizontal forward flight. Vertical conducted its first flight tests with a pilot on board to prove it could meet the most stringent safety standards. To do this, Vertical Aerospace received regulatory approval in the form of a “Permit to Fly” from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), after demonstrating the test could be conducted safely.
