In this podcast Brandon Robinson, CEO of Canadian company Horizon Aircraft discusses the details his company’s eVTOL-development program, including the technical issues challenges his team are addressing and market trends.

Horizon Aircraft, which was founded in 2008, is developing the hybrid-electric Cavorite X5 to have an estimated top speed of 450 km/h (280mph) with a 500km (300 miles) range and a five passenger capacity.
