Podcast: Dean Moore, flight test specialist, Vertical Aerospace


Aerospace Testing International’s testing innovation podcast, episode number 3, features an interview with Dean Moore, flight test specialist at Vertical Aerospace.

Vertical Aerospace is a startup based in Bristol, UK that is making good progress developing an eVTOL air taxi that it initially wants to operate in between cities.

After finishing the testing of its prototypes, Vertical Aerospace released the details of its production aircraft, the VA-1X this summer. It also announced its first supplier partnership with Honeywell for the avionics earlier this year.

But most importantly, the company recruited Dean to head up its flight-testing program, which is planned to start next year.

This interview was recorded during early September, just a couple of months after Dean’s recruitment and shortly after the big design. During the podcast Dean discusses the VA-1X aircraft, his plans for the testing program and gives his thoughts on urban air mobility.
