Our Take on the AirQuad One
The AirQuad One has a large amount of backing, mostly due to Neva Aerospace being an industrial consortium that has considerable resources (financial and physical) at its disposal to aid in production of the AirQuad. However, since its debut at the 2017 Paris Air Show, not much has been heard about Neva or its AirQuad project.
