Since day one, we’ve been focused on the commercialization of this industry. That’s why we started by using data to predict the demand profile we are building for. We remain steadfast in our resolve to bring an aircraft to market with the most efficient path and least amount of risk that can achieve profitability.

We identified early on that partnering with established players in adjacent industries was key to our commercialization strategy.
