VRCO, the pioneering luxury eVTOL manufacturer, and exclusive adventure travel innovator, Pelorus, have announced a world-first partnership.

The partnership marks the next step for Pelorus and its mission to create bespoke travel experiences for its HNW and UNHW customers across the globe. The agreement includes an initial supply of at least four of VRCO’s four-person XP4 aircraft.

In what marks the first time an exclusive travel company has ever collaborated with an eVTOL developer, the two firms will work together to create brand new travel experiences and will give Pelorus customers the ability to travel further and explore more deeply. Meanwhile, VRCO’s all-electric XP4 aircraft will enhance Pelorus’s commitment to carbon-responsible travel and its unrivalled capabilities will enable travellers to expand their exploration adventures, from taking off and landing on yachts to flying through mountain and jungle environments.

XP4 aircraft

With the hugely innovative four-person XP4 aircraft undergoing extreme hot and cold weather testing and due for certification in 2024, the construction of new Pelorus travel itineraries and the enhancement of existing experiences will begin immediately and will be available to book shortly.

Pelorus co-founder and CEO, Geordie Mackay-Lewis, said: “We have always prided ourselves on being at the very forefront of innovation within the travel experiences sector, and strive to provide our customers with truly exclusive, boutique experiences, of the kind they would not get from any other travel company.

“In the past, the ability to transform perspectives with immersive air-bound experiences around the world has been somewhat limited by restrictions that come with the use of helicopters and similar aircraft which are far more cumbersome and disruptive to the natural world.

“The advent of the eVTOL market and products like the all-electric XP4 is therefore the natural and most logical way for us to expand our offering, and move the needle on sustainable air transport, while the aircraft’s luxury credentials are in perfect harmony with the top-end experiences we offer our clientele.

“At Pelorus, we have always had a maverick spirit and strong sense of duty to towards stewardship of the planet. Creating this world-first partnership is just another indication of that in action.”
