Volocopter aims to gain certification in Paris to demonstrate the viability of flying taxis.

The company’s “VoloCity” is undergoing test flights to meet the safety standards required for overflights in Paris.

Volocopter hopes to obtain a special permit for demonstration flights during the Olympics and plans to conduct two years of test flights in the Paris region to build public confidence.

Volocopter’s CEO Dirk Hoke said, “If you can fly in Paris, you can fly in any city in the world.”

“Noise, safety and durability are the most important criteria for flying above a city,” he continued.

“We have to take these views seriously and respond to these concerns, because what’s important to us is not just the certification, but public acceptance,” said Hoke.

“We will have support when people see and hear the flights and realize that they don’t disturb city life,” added the CEO.

Volocopter seeks funding for demonstration flights and plans to introduce a new aircraft with four seats by late 2026 or early 2027 for a more profitable business model.
