Why Ascent, from our founder

Ascent is created to make Urban Air Mobility a reality today and enable the ecosystem required for tomorrow. We have started in a region where major cities are crippled with high traffic congestion and connectivity issues. Ascent makes urban air mobility more cost-efficient and sustainable through ride-sharing on fuel-efficient helicopters and carbon offsetting to ensure our carbon neutrality. We have set up a dedicated ecosystem powered by our technology. People and businesses now have the possibility to regain control of their time by moving in the skies seamlessly and affordably within and around congested cities or between hubs of activity like airports, business districts, and leisure destinations.
