VERDEGO AERO PAT200
In 1927 Charles Lindbergh’s pioneering New York to Paris flight jump-started the golden age aviation. His passion and work for the industry enabled practical, long-distance air transportation for billions of people moving around the planet. Long distance flight is now an indispensable part of our global economy. Now 90 years later Erik Lindbergh, Charles’ grandson, has assembled a dream team to make short range air travel as useful and efficient as long distance air travel. We are making the dream of “Flying Car” transportation a reality.

VERDEGO AEROVerdeGo Aero is based at the MicaPlex Aerospace Innovation Complex in the Embry-Riddle Research Park in Daytona, FL. The company is developing a quiet, 2-seat, hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft designed for commercial use in short-range urban transportation networks. The PAT200 has 8 electric propulsion pods on a dual-tilt wing platform. The propellers on the rear wing are pushers and tilt down for vertical flight, while the propellers on the canard are tractors, tilting up for VTOL mode. Multiple prototypes are currently under development and will be flying in 2018. VerdeGo Aero is already working with fleet operators to ensure that the aircraft is optimized for the needs of the commercial market. VerdeGo Aero has multiple patents pending on unique aspects of its eVTOL aircraft, and envisions numerous applications, from urban air mobility to disaster relief and cargo delivery.
We are enabling a new type of local air taxi service with an aircraft that is safe, quiet, and comfortable for passengers, while being profitable and reliable for local airlines operating fleets of eVTOL aircraft to create urban air travel networks.
