$250-Million Order Placed for Ace VTOL GT Slipstream

Personal eVTOL “Muscle Car” to Debut by 2027

Ace VTOL, the Australian eVTOL maker that aspires to revolutionize Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in the antipodes, announced on 26 July 2023 that it had received a kingly, $250-million order for its flagship personal eVTOL aircraft, the GT Slipstream, from Aeroauto, a prominent Palm Beach, Florida-based retailer of eVTOL aircraft.

Billed as two-seat flying “muscle car” capable of attaining speeds as high as 235-knots and covering a single-charge range of 260-nautical-miles (the distance from Dallas to Lubbock, Texas) the GT Slipstream is powered by a quartet of Arc Reaction Engines—a moniker likely to earn Ace a strongly-worded letter from Tony Stark’s lawyers.

Ace sets forth its GT Slipstream is provisioned with sophisticated sensors and software by which comfort, autonomy, and safety of flight are ensured. The company states, also, that the aircraft transitions seamlessly from low-speed to high-speed flight.

Ace anticipates the GT Slipstream will make its U.S. market debut by 2027.

Aeroauto has committed to acquiring at least one-hundred specimens of Ace’s GT Slipstream by 2040, thereby signifying the retailer’s faith in the endurance and profitability of the eVTOL industry. A leading U.S. eVTOL concern, Aeroauto intends to offer comprehensive sales, service, and access to a planned national vertiport infrastructure.

With its first prototype expected to fly within 12-months, Ace VTOL is currently in certification talks with the FAA. Pilot-training for all Ace eVTOL models will be provided by Boeing-backed AI pioneer NeurobotX, which is about the business of developing simulation training technology through Meta Pilot gamification software.

Aeroauto plans further investment in Ace VTOL via purchase of the Australian company’s inchoate Trinity eVTOL, a versatile air-taxi slated to provide eco-friendly transportation for up to five passengers or one metric ton of cargo. Ace hopes to see Trinity enter the U.S. market by 2028.
