VoltAero is a French company that is developing the Cassio, a hybrid aircraft that would be ready in 2023, and available in three versions of four, six, and ten seats. VoltAero’s vision is to take electric aircraft to a whole new level.
As an experienced company, VoltAero is developing a general aviation aircraft with hybrid-electric propulsion, providing significant safety and comfort, while fitting into the sustainable trend that is gripping the aviation sector.
The Cassio features an elegant and aerodynamically optimized fuselage, combined with a fixed canard and a rear wing with twin tail booms that support an upper tailplane. These features allow the transport of four to ten people with a flight range of at least 3.5 hours, making it suitable for private owners, air taxi/charter companies, regional commercial flights, and for use in other applications such as delivery or medical assessment.
It will be certified to European EASA CS23 certification specifications as a single-engine general aviation category aircraft, and is designed from the ground up for low operating cost.
The Cassio is being developed in three different versions, each offering a high degree of modularity and commonality:
– Cassio 330, a four-seat configuration with 330 kilowatts of combined hybrid-electric power
– Cassio 480, a six-seat configuration with 480 kilowatts of hybrid-electric propulsion power
– Cassio 600, with 10 seats and 600 kilowatts of hybrid-electric propulsion power.
VoltAero has found a new customer to operate the Cassio:
Airways Aviation has become the French launch customer for the VoltAero Cassio, for scheduled and on-demand air transport service development operations in the South of France. The Cassio could also be used by Airways Aviation for pilot training courses.
The agreement between VoltAero and Airways Aviation was formalized on June 25, 2021, at an event held at the private group’s professional pilot and cabin crew training school headquarters at Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport. Airways Aviation becomes the candidate for the French launch of VoltAero’s Cassio family of hybrid-electric aircraft, with three versions in four, six and ten seats (respectively the Cassio 330, Cassio 480, and Cassio 600).
This agreement demonstrates the aviation and transportation industry’s commitment to the transition to greener aircraft production and operations by training a new generation of pilots on the aircraft of the future.
