In 2019, Autonomous Flight started out with the two-seater Y6S eVTOL aircraft, but by early 2021 had resolved to focus all its efforts on a six-seater designated the Y6S Plus. This is intended to primarily be used for scheduled passenger shuttle flights, but also for applications such as emergency medical support.
In January 2021, company founder Martin Warner confirmed that he has launched a new funding round to raise an additional $25 million to support plans to have a full-scale prototype flying by 2023. He estimates that it could take 8 to 10 years before the company is ready to launch commercial operations.
In December 2021, Autonomous Flight said that in January 2022 it will start accepting pre-orders for the Y6S Plus aircraft. It is also launching a $100 million Series C funding round. The company said it has completed design work on the Y6S prototype.
