flyExclusive is to become the first member of Textron eAviation's customer advisory board for the Nexus eVTOL aircraft. The US operator will provide input on operator, pilot and passenger preferences to inform development, particularly within the cockpit and cabin.

President Tommy Sowers says: “This appointment reflects our unwavering commitment to innovation and sustainability, and to furthering our long-standing partnership with Textron. As one of the largest operators of Cessna Citations, with decades of experience and deep respect for the talented individuals at Textron, we are eager to bring our unique perspective to the table and collaborate on designing the future of flight; all to provide superior service and experience for our customers. The sky has never been the limit for us; rather it is the beginning of an exciting journey to redefine how we connect with the world."

Then Textron eAviation president and CEO Rob Scholl adds: “The Nexus eVTOL is being designed to offer customers sustainably powered mobility and flexibility in a variety of locations and missions. Our collaboration with flyExclusive demonstrates our strong focus on further developing the product and ensuring it delivers an exceptional customer experience. As we begin the building of our first eVTOL prototype aircraft, flyExclusive's input will be important as we finalise our aircraft design and as the technology and market evolve over the coming years.”

As the programme advances, both companies will collaborate on marketing and trade shows, and will work with regulatory authorities and on public acceptance of advanced air mobility platforms.
