Ascendance Flight Technologies has opted for hybridization for its cutting-edge propulsion system and vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (VTOL). An ambitious model, developed by this “Cleantech” gem that aspires to the rapid decarbonization of aviation. The Toulouse-based startup is announcing the constitution of a high-level board made up of Jean-Paul Herteman, Jean-Christophe Kugler and Agnès Plagneux-Bertrand. This is a strategic step for Ascendance Flight Technologies, which is taking on Robert Lafontan, a world reference in aeronautics, as its special consultant. Last but not least: a multi-year agreement has been signed with Capgemini.
