VoltAero signs a memorandum of understanding with SKY2SHARE, A Swiss-based business aviation company, for the pre-order of 15 Cassio electric-hybrid aircraft

Geneva, Switzerland, May 23, 2023 – VoltAero’s customer base for its Cassio aircraft family has further expanded with a pre-order from SKY2SHARE, a Swiss-based aviation company offering fractional ownership and focused to radically decrease CO2 footprint of its operations, for 15 of the electric-hybrid airplanes.

This commitment begins with the five-seat Cassio 330, while also incorporating the flexibility for SKY2SHARE to incorporate the six-seat Cassio 480 and 12-seat Cassio 600 versions.

The pre-order was announced today at EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland. VoltAero and SKY2SHARE share a joint exhibit in the Palexpo convention center’s Innovation Zone Pavilion (Exhibit Hall 4-6, Booth #A20).

With this latest agreement, VoltAero has now lined up a total of 218 orders and commitments for its Cassio airplane product line.

“Cassio is perfectly tailored for SKY2SHARE ambitious goal of providing productive and environmentally conscious mobility services that reduce business aviation’s environmental footprint,” said Jean Botti, VoltAero’s CEO & Chief Technology Officer.

Selim Franko, SKY2SHARE Co-founder and the company’s CEO, added: “We are impressed with VoltAero’s progress in developing the Cassio aircraft family’s “clean sheet” design, which offers the right solution for our economically viable and socially responsible services as a truly sustainable alternative to traditional business aviation. We are thrilled that the Cassio family will allow us to radically reduce the environmental impact of our operations”.

VoltAero’s airframe configuration for Cassio is based on a sleek, aerodynamically-optimized fuselage, a forward fixed canard, and an aft-set wing with twin booms that support a high-set horizontal tail.

By integrating VoltAero’s patented electric-hybrid propulsion system into the company’s purpose-designed airframe, the Cassio aircraft family will deliver an order of magnitude higher performance as compared to the current competition, and provide significantly lower operational costs.

Production Cassio airplanes will be built in three versions, each sharing a high degree of modularity and commonality. The family will provide a highly capable and reliable product line for charter companies, regional commercial operators and private owners, as well as in utility-category service for cargo, postal delivery, and medical evacuation (Medevac) applications.

First to enter service wil be the Cassio 330, with five seats and powered by the 330-kilowatt electric-hybrid propulsion system. VoltAero’s follow-on six-seat Cassio 480 will have an electric-hybrid propulsion power of 480 kilowatts, while the Cassio 600 is sized at a 12-seat capacity with electric-hybrid propulsion power of 600 kilowatts.

VoltAero is headquartered at the Aérodrome de Royan-Médis in southwest France, and its Cassio aircraft are to undergo final assembly in a purpose-built facility at the Rochefort Charente-Maritime Airport in France’s Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.
