Meet the ASKA™, from NFT Inc. – the first viable Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing vehicle (eVTOL) in the world with drive and fly capabilities, providing door to door safe autonomous transport for daily commuters.
NFT opened the world's first flying car showroom in April 2021 for pre-orders of the ASKA™ and it features an interactive museum and learning center dedicated to air mobility.
The 4-seater ASKA™ electric extended range Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) vehicle enables people to live within 100-150 miles outside a major city and easily commute to an urban center in less than 1-hour, door-to-door.
People can board ASKA™ at their home, on the street or in a parking lot, and drive it like a regular car. The size of a large SUV in drive mode, the ASKA™ is a performant road vehicle. To easily transition to flight mode, ASKA™ lifts off vertically in a designated vertipad launch space – no need to travel to a special air terminal or wait in line with other travelers. As the wings open, ASKA™ transitions to smooth flight, programmed to the driver's destination. After safely transitioning to a vertical landing in a vertipad, ASKA™ can be driven as a car, or be parked in a standard parking lot, on the street, or in a garage. Flying the vehicle will be made simple through semi-autonomous technologies, although pilot training will still be needed to operate ASKA™ in the air.
The FAA and EASA have moved ahead to certify street-legal conventional aircraft. ASKA™'s development and flight testing are being conducted in accordance with FAA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines for certification.
Dual type of power supply sources exist for optimal safety: each rotor has an independent battery power source plus a range extender power to ensure continued flight and a safe landing in the event of an em
