Introducing the world’s first green helicopter -- the Volocopter, made in Germany by E-volo, has made its first maiden flight. The volocopter is the first in the world to provide clean, environmentally friendly and completely emission-free private flights.

With 18-rotor blades and an easy to disassemble architectural structure (splitting into six central battery blocks), the environmentally friendly vessel can hold up to two passengers for distances ranging from "100 km and a flight altitude of up to 6,500 feet equipped with an automated control system". Along with the on-board computers coordinated with hi-tech sensors, the pilot no longer needs to worry about weather conditions during the flight.

The e-volo is a groundbreaking innovation as it is safer, even simpler and most importantly, cleaner than the classic helicopters.
