Volatus Infrastructure has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Australian-based electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) company Ace VTOL.

The MOU names Volatus as Ace’s preferred infrastructure partner and establishes a joint business development relationship designed to expand opportunities in the rapidly growing eVTOL market. 

“This partnership brings us even greater credibility among customers in Australia. We commend the visionary leadership of founder and CEO Brett Northey and the whole team at Ace,” said Dan Sloat, Volatus Infrastructure CEO. “Perth is one of the most isolated cities in the world — a full 1,300 miles from the next city of note, so strategically located vertiports will be a key enabler to growth.” 

“Ace is incredibly proud to be working hand in hand with the team at Volatus Infrastructure. It offers a unique understanding of the Australian climate and culture with its timeless style and practical vertiport design, offering a comfortable solution for all Australians in this new transport demographic,” added Brett Northey

Ace VTOL is a technology and transportation company focused on delivering safe and sustainable eVTOL aircraft to the global market with multirole airframes for commercial, logistics and municipal applications. Ultimately, Ace is committed to alleviating the issues associated with the existing transport ecosystem, increasing property and business valuation through connectivity and safely placing Australia at the leading edge of this exciting new transport demographic. 

Founded in 2021, Volatus Infrastructure offers three main eVTOL infrastructure designs, a vehicle agnostic charging station, plus an app and maintenance programmes.
