FREEDOM TO DRIVE AND FLY
Meet the ASKA™ A5 - the first viable electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) vehicle where you can drive on the road like a car and take off vertically to fly in the air like an aircraft. ASKA™ A-5 is a four-seater flying car, the size of a large SUV, with a flight range of 250 miles. We are on target for 2026 commercialization, subject to certification approvals.
USES TODAY'S INFRASTRUCTURE
Seamless to integrate in cities and outlying communities: ASKA™ A5 can be parked in existing parking spaces and charged at home or in EV charging stations. Does not require investment in electrification, parking and terminals. Range extender engine uses premium gas and can be filled at local automotive gas stations.
DOOR TO DOOR TRANSPORTATION
Drive, fly and then drive to the final destination in one vehicle - uninterrupted.
No need to take a car to an air terminal, park, wait for an air taxi, then search for transport to complete the journey. ASKA™ needs only a compact space for a launch pad and provides easy door-to-door transportation!
ASKA™ A5's development and flight testing is being conducted in accordance with FAA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines for certification.
ASKA has signed a five-year Space Act Agreement with NASA to advance their participation in NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign (AAM), jointly organized with the FAA. ASKA™ A5 is targeted for commercialization in 2026 subject to certification.
