EVTOL Ambitions Tackling New Regulations

AIR International Magazine

RYSE Aero Technologies, which in May announced the launch of RYSE RECON, its first eVTOL platform, is unaffected by the FAA change since its aircraft are to operate within the specifications of 14 CFR, Part 103 for ultralight flights. However, the company sees opportunities for its aircraft to gain a strong position in the market. It expects to deliver the first RYSE RECON — an eVTOL that offers a 25-mile range and the ability to operate on both land and water, with six independent propulsion systems fitted with removable batteries — to customers in January 2023. Commenting on the FAA announcement, Mick Kowitz, CEO of RYSE Aero Technologies, told AIR International:

“These new rules present some exciting opportunities for us to take advantage of. As an ultralight eVTOL vehicle, we specifically chose to work within the spirit of Part 103 to provide an alternative to the Jobys and Archers of the world. Under Part 103, the RYSE RECON will have one occupant – an operator – who will be flying at low altitudes in non-congested areas across, in many cases, their own private property.
