VÆRIDION announces cooperation with Sustainable Aviation Foundation Skyfinity, joining hands to accelerate technology for green aviation
Vaeridion GmbH is a Munich based company that is accelerating the green transformation of aviation with a small electric aircraft that will be certified and delivered before 2030. Skyfinity is a sustainable aviation non-profit foundation and impact fund that sources long-term capital from passengers and corporates, thereby reducing funding gaps for aviation start-ups to enable the accelerated introduction of sustainable flying technology. Both parties have agreed to support each other in their shared ambitions towards the decarbonization of the aviation industry.
„Accelerating technology development for net-zero aviation is the long-term solution that will enable us to fly with minimal load on the planet. This is challenging because start-ups and scale-ups are the key to introducing new technology, but they face severe financial barriers. As travelers, we have the shared responsibility and the power to drive the industry forward, by “innovating-to-zero”. Skyfinity is the bridge – linking travelers and businesses with sustainable aviation innovators. This partnership with VÆRIDION is a pivotal move for Skyfinity to support the development of promising flying technologies, and to share the story of how sustainable aviation unfolds.“
Maurice Boon – Chairman Skyfinity
“The future of regional aviation is electric. Partners like Skyfinity will help us to unlock the type of win-win-win interaction between corporations, passengers and start-ups on our journey to electrify regional air mobility. Today passengers have few choices for compensating their current emissions with limited effect. With Skyfinity, passengers can directly contribute to the impact fund, which will avoid future emissions by supporting the development of our emission-free Microliner.”
Ivor van Dartel – Chief Executive Officer VÆRIDION
The foreseeable Market Size for eCTOL aircraft will range from 5.000 to 10.000 aircraft by 2040 and it would require a series of investments that can be enabled through Skyfinity’s foundation.
