Rolls-Royce is to supply the electrical power system for Vertical Aerospace’s VA-X4, an aircraft set to be one of the world’s first certified all-electric vertical take-off and landing platforms.

The company said it will integrate an electrical power system into the piloted VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) vehicle, which will carry up to four passengers for 120 miles at cruise speeds of over 200mph and is on course to certify in 2024.
