The Swiss eVTOL developer announced that it is partnering with the Sweden-based helicopter distributor to exclusively represent Dufour Aerospace’s eight-seat Aero3 aircraft in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland.
“Savback Helicopters is a reliable, experienced partner, well-positioned to promote our Aero3 aircraft in Scandinavia,” said Thomas Pfammatter, CEO and co-founder of Dufour Aerospace, in a press release. “It makes us proud that such an experienced company strongly anchored in the helicopter market believes in the real potential of our vision, designs, and team.”
Dufour Aerospace revealed the design and specifications for its Aero3 tilt-wing eVTOL last summer. With six propellers distributed across the main wing and two smaller propellers on the tail, the piloted hybrid-electric aircraft is targeting a cruise speed of 350 kilometers per hour (215 miles per hour), range of 1,020 km (630 mi), and useful load of 750 kilograms (1,650 pounds).
