System Components control flying - the Pilot just commands direction!
With those simple words, the management of the e-volo GmbH in Karlsruhe/Germany, circumscribe their futuristic development-target to build the "safest aircraft in the world". Unlike any other aircraft their Volocopter VC200 is steered solely by a single joystick, which makes the handling extremely easy. Levers for flaps, air-brakes, landing gear or even rudder-pedals? Not to be found in the cockpit of the VC200, as they are completely obsolete. Flying the craft with a single joystick only, the German Volocopter VC200 will be the first and only aircraft in the world, which could quite easily be flown and handled by disabled pilots. Without prior extensive and costly modifications. Compared to any other type of aircraft, handling the 18-engine Volocopter is extremely simple.
