Take-off for Aston Martin Last month, Aston Martin (www.gobal.astonmartin.com) revealed its Volante Vision Concept, a luxury aircraft with vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities.

Produced in partnership with Cranfield University, Cranfield Aerospace Solutions and Rolls-Royce, the concept aircraft aims to bring “luxury personal transportation to the sky”.

With room for three adults, the “hybrid-electric vehicle for urban and inter-city air travel” takes full advantage of the latest advances in aerospace, electrification and autonomous technologies, coupled with Aston Martin’s “signature design”.

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin president and CEO, said: “Air travel will have a crucial part in the future of transportation, and the Volante Vision Concept is the ultimate luxury mobility solution.

“Humans have always spent 1hr on average commuting to and from work, and the distance we live from our work-place has been determined by the methods of transportation available.

“The Volante Vision Concept will enable us to travel further in our hourly commute, meaning we can live further away from where we work.”
