In 2019, Autonomous Flight started out with the two-seater Y6S eVTOL aircraft, but by early 2021 had resolved to focus all its efforts on a six-seater designated the Y6S Plus. This is intended to primarily be used for scheduled passenger shuttle flights, but also for applications such as emergency medical support.
In January 2021, company founder Martin Warner confirmed that he has launched a new funding round to raise an additional $25 million to support plans to have a full-scale prototype flying by 2023. He estimates that it could take 8 to 10 years before the company is ready to launch commercial operations.
Despite the company's name, it is expected that the Y6S Plus will begin operations with a pilot on board.
