From VOLARE to APELEON. Read more about our company.
Everything starts small and needs time to grow
VOLARE GmbH, an Austrian Start-Up, focuses on research and development to elaborate novel aircraft concepts. A team of experienced engineers with a strong background in aerospace engineering develops and produces a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft under the new brand APELEON. We are working with demonstrators in various scales to test and evaluate the functionality and safety of our aircraft.
It all began in 2017 with a basic concept for a disruptive new air vehicle as PROJEKT VOLARE. In October 2017 Andreas Fürlinger founded VOLARE GmbH.
We started in Vienna. As one of the winners of the ÖAMTC Start-Up-Challenge, the ÖAMTC (the Austrian Automobile Club) kindly supplied us with office space in their headquarters in 2018. Meanwhile the company has moved to Mödling, office space was expanded and workshops and labs for our first experiments were added.
We can rely on a solid network of strong partners supporting us in various areas – together we are shaping the future of mobility.
Our team consists of experienced engineers with a strong background in the aerospace industry as well as young talents who recently received their engineering degrees. This solid engineering expertise combined with dynamic and creative spirit allows us to further develop the best solutions in our cross-disciplinary tasks. The team has several years of experience in the aviation industry under their belt and has worked on well-known aircraft such as Airbus A380, Boeing B787, Eurocopter EC135 or even special projects like Solar Impulse. This international team works in Austria to contribute to the mobility solutions of the future.
