The premiere of manned flights with the e-volo’s Volocopter VC200, marks the beginning of a new era in urban mobility.

The historic first flight performed on 30.03.2016 CEO Alexander Zosel. The historic world premiere of a flight with a certified multicopter was made by e-volo managing director Alexander Zosel on March 30th, 2016. On this day he gave the Volocopter VC200 with the registration D-MYVC the name "White Lady".

“The flight was totally awesome” Alex Zosel said right after his landing. “The machine was absolutely reliable, there were no vibrations, it was tremendous. Anyway, the first flight was simply unbelievable. I got in, we did the pre-checks for what felt like maybe 20 seconds, and after that I’d already got the all-clear for flying. I didn’t wait long, I simply pushed the lever upward and the Volocopter simply sprung upward in a single bound. It was unbelievable, it hovered totally weightlessly, I mean it didn’t at all feel like there were crazy forces at work, it was all just totally light and the Volocopter immediately converted every movement I made with the joystick.



It is definitely a sublime feeling to lift off, fly the first few meters, and then actually take my hand off the joystick and think that, yeah, it’s really as if I’m standing on the ground, and then I look down and there are 20-25 meters beneath me. So it’s definitely unbelievable what we’ve achieved here. It’s seriously unbelievable!“
