The V1 Video team interviewed Eric Westreich, who works on Business Development at Aerovel, at the 2015 Esri User Conference in San Diego. We spoke about the unique Aerovel Flexrotor hybrid-electric vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) craft that can take off and land vertically, rotating its flight to cover more ground and takeoff from a moving platform. The Aerovel Flexrotor comes from a marine legacy, where runways aren’t possible other than on an aircraft carrier.
