LIFT Aircraft recently completed first-of-its-kind training to equip the United States Air Force to operate LIFT’s aircraft, HEXA. This is the first-ever Air Force crew trained to independently operate eVTOL aircraft. Participants included personnel from the 413th Flight Test Squadron, AETC Det 62, and AFWERX Agility Prime.

“Getting the chance to fly the HEXA gave me a deeper understanding of the system's inner workings and an understanding of how stable and responsive the HEXA aircraft is and of its possible future capabilities." - Maj. Victoria Snow, 413th FLTS Helicopter Pilot
