Sensor Systems Engineer



Based in the heart of Startup Nation, at the intersection of aerodynamics, autonomy, and electric propulsion - we are changing personal aviation.
AIRLIFT One enables you to travel 5 times faster than a car by introducing the world’s most efficient all-electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft: an air taxi for 2-5 people. You won’t have to own one, you will simply pay per ride and call it with a push of a button.

It’s our mission to make air taxis available to everyone and as affordable as riding a car.

- Take-off and Land Anywhere -
Quiet electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) is the technology that will change travel forever.
It enables you to access city centres with an aircraft. Leaving the city after a stressful day will soon be transformed into a thrilling ride. By travelling through the air you’ll be able to avoid time-consuming traffic jams, while enjoying a magnificent view.
