Airspeeder announced through its social networks the completion of 250 flight tests as part of its preparation for the debut season of the series called the first 100% electric category of flying vehicles, where the journey that began in June 2020 with the MK3C developed by Alauda Aeronautics was extended through the months to reach 250 tests.
From takeoff tests, landing, side-by-side competition, components such as the engine and so on, the series has gone step by step to make the debut a reality, which will first be unmanned as a final test and then give entry to driving from the inside, increasing the sensitivity and competitiveness among participants.
The Airspeeder creation seeks to convey all the power, technology and confidence that can be obtained through electrified cars, while at the same time completely innovating in automotive matters, taking the racing action to the skies amidst the sustainable promotion they have outlined as a fundamental pillar.

“The design of the Airspeeder is based on British Formula 1 racing cars of the 1960s. Alauda is pioneering the future of motor racing with the Airspeeder, whose main objective is to accelerate the development of electric flying aircraft by placing them in a competitive environment,” states the Australian company in charge of developing the official car of the series.
Defined as “the first coupe in the sky”, the MK4 will be able to reach 80 mph during air races, even with brief moments of pure power at 155 mph competing for lapses of approximately 10 minutes (maybe a little more), given that the batteries provide 15 minutes of energy during the competition, being necessary to stop in pits.
