PALM SPRINGS, Calif., Sept. 25, 2020 -- Eco Helicopters ("Eco") announces the launch of EcoMax™ on-demand urban air mobility, commencing operations in the second quarter of 2021. A program developed specifically for the Los Angeles metropolitan area, Eco will utilize the all-electric, zero-emissions EcoMax™ helicopter. 

Eco CEO Ric Webb has participated in setting numerous world records as the program test pilot.  Webb states, "We are launching EcoMax™ urban air mobility to provide economical transportation, today. Combining our direct booking app with the ultra-efficient, zero-emissions helicopter, we have changed the paradigm of air transportation.  Based at multiple locations for ready departure, accessing EcoMax™ is as simple as ordering a land based rideshare. Just tap and go."

Webb continues, "Electric powered flight is the future of point-to-point commercial air travel. We are proud to provide environmentally friendly urban air mobility at affordable prices."  EcoMax™ will operate under the auspices of Eco's FAA Part 135 Air Carrier certificate.

Based upon the FAA certified and proven Robinson R-44 Raven II airframe, EcoMax™ will initially launch utilizing the helicopters existing powerplant.  Eco will be upgrading to all-electric operation once the FAA Supplemental Type Certification for the propulsion system is completed.

Partnering with the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership, Eco is based in Palm Springs, CA and is looking forward to launching operations.

Teaming with its marketing partner KiloWatt Aviation, ownership opportunities are available to place the EcoMax™ into urban air mobility service.  Contact KiloWatt to learn how you can participate in the green aviation revolution, fielding an EcoMax™ quickly and affordably.
