eVTOL developer Overair has announced a new strategic collaboration with leading private jet management company, fixed-base operator (FBO) and infrastructure developer Clay Lacy Aviation to develop electric aviation facilities and services across Southern California.
The companies will work together to develop a concept of operations for Overair’s Butterfly eVTOL aircraft, which began testing in early 2024, as well as other eVTOLs. The initial tranche of development will be at Clay Lacy FBOs at John Wayne Airport in Orange County and Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles. The two companies will also explore the establishment of new vertiport facilities and services across Southern California.
“Advanced air mobility (AAM) is an ideal addition to Southern California’s transportation network, creating a new option for fast, safe, and quiet transportation in the region,” said Valerie Manning, Chief Commercial Officer at Overair. “We have been working with our partners at Clay Lacy for over a year and are delighted to announce our shared plan. We are confident that this strategic collaboration will leverage our respective strengths to create an AAM network that will positively impact local residents and visitors alike.”
