Our Take on Flexcraft


Flexcraft is an eVTOL in work by a consortium of companies in based in Lisbon, Portugal. According to their production schedule, the consortium should be in the midst of finalizing the design of their aircraft and beginning production of the first prototype. If Flexcraft released corroborative evidence that they're on schedule, or at least building a prototype, then closely monitor the progress of this manufacturer for the rest of the year to see if they continue to match pace toward deployment in 2019.
