Airbus selects KLK Motorsport and Modell- und Formenbau Blasius Gerg GmbH to develop rear structure for CityAirbus NextGen Airbus is partnering with KLK Motorsport and Modell- und Formenbau Blasius Gerg GmbH to design, develop and manufacture the rear structure for the CityAirbus NextGen electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL prototype). The companies will work together to develop an ultra-lightweight rear fuselage, which plays a key role in the airframe’s flight efficiency, and which meets the high standards of reliability and performance for Airbus’ eVTOL prototype.

The two partners will design high-end composite solutions and components that will equip CityAirbus NextGen’s rear structure, through a collaborative framework that enables them to mutually benefit from each company’s competencies in design, engineering and manufacturing processes.

In September 2021, Airbus unveiled its eVTOL prototype, CityAirbus NextGen, to explore advanced air mobility technologies and bring urban air mobility services to life. Over the past few months, the company has selected partners for structural components of its prototype, such as Thales and Diehl, who will develop the aircraft’s flight control computers, or Spirit AeroSystems for its wings. Airbus is also working closely with industrial and institutional partners to lead the development of urban air mobility ecosystems, as recently announced with ITA Airways in Italy, or through the launch of the Air Mobility Initiative in Germany
