Voltaero Launches European Fractional Ownership Program

French Aerospace Marque to Offer Shares in its Innovative, Cassio 330 Aircraft

VoltAero is launching a European, fractional-ownership program for its Cassio 330 electric-hybrid aircraft.

The company accepted initial expressions of interest for fractional ownership shares of its five-seat, single-engine, pusher-configuration, twin-tail-boom canard at last weeks European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva.

“Cassio will open a new era of highly sustainable air transportation in Europe with on-demand flight services for those who join our fractional share ownership,” explained Jean Botti, VoltAero’s CEO and Chief Technology Officer. Botti adds, “It’s highly appropriate that we bring this mobility solution to Europe with Cassio…"

The 330-kilowatt, Cassio 330 is the first in a trio of hybrid-powered aircraft proposed by the French aerospace concern, which looks to eventually expand its fractional ownership program to include the as-of-yet undeveloped: six-seat, 480-kilowatt, Cassio 480; and the 10-12 seat, 600-kilowatt, Cassio 600. VoltAero asserts all Cassio series aircraft will share a high degree of modularity and commonality.

The Casio propulsion system comprises a series of primary, electric motors and a conventional, internal-combustion engine that serves to extend range by recharging the aircraft’s batteries in flight. Additionally, the internal-combustion engine provides backup power in the event of electric propulsion system failure.

A flight demonstrator aircraft is currently validating the hybrid-electric powertrain in preparation for airworthiness certification and subsequent utilization in future, VoltAero aircraft.

Based near the city of Royan in west-central France, VoltAero has developed and previously flown the 20-kilowatt Electric Cri-Cri (2011); the 60-kilowatt E-FAN, which made history in 2015 by becoming the first all-electric commercial aircraft to cross the English Channel.
