Our Take on Alauda
Alauda's development is moving forward into flight testing, although the company experienced some technical difficulties at its latest unmanned demonstration flight. Despite this, the company is still planning on beginning its Grand Prix in 2020, indicating its confidence in its overall progress. Ultimately, Alauda is one of the few companies making headway into eVTOL racing, and even if it does not make its schedule, it's still likely to begin eVTOL racing in the near future.
