Swiss Helicopter Selects Dufour’s eVTOL Aircraft

Swiss Helicopter AG signed a Letter of Intent with Swiss eVTOL company Dufour Aerospace to buy two Aero2 and one Aero3 aircraft.

The purchase is in line with Swiss Helicopter AG’s vision to reduce carbon emissions through “modern means of flying and air transportation,” according to Rolf Heuberger, CEO of Swiss Helicopter.

“We are extremely pleased that such an experienced operator invested in the development of Dufour Aerospace and intends to gain initial experience with our aircraft in the near future,” said Thomas Pfammatter, Co-founder and CEO of Dufour Aerospace.

The hybrid-electric tilt-wing aircraft combines the design of a helicopter and an airplane. It is capable of taking off and landing like a helicopter while being as energy efficient and fast as an airplane in cruise. Dufour also holds letters of intent from various Swiss helicopter companies including Swiss Air-Rescue Rega.
