Alauda Racing was born with the goal to rapidly accelerate development of electric flying vehicles by placing them in a competitive environment.
The first test flight is planned for 2018. Alauda hopes the first ever Airspeeder World Championship will be held by 2020, where racers from different manufacturers will compete against each other.
A top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) is expected.
