How Far, How Long, Will Your Batteries Let Your eVTOL Fly?

In aviation, time is money. This is also true in UAM.

They say time is money. Perhaps nowhere is the consumer-operator more conscious of time than in aviation. Travelers worry if their flight is on-time. If departure is delayed, they worry they’ll be able to connect from one flight to another. Flight operators fret over aircraft availability, regulations dictating crew time for safe operations, and myriad…
