PRIMUS AERO is investing in the future of transportation with the purchase of a fleet of PAL-V Liberty vehicles, enhancing their operational excellence and minimizing the downtime of clients’ aircraft.
Future of transportation
As Stephan Krainer, CEO and Founder of PRIMUS AERO, explains: « The PAL-V is a time-saving machine for us. Our staff consists of highly trained and qualified experts, with decent incomes. Having them stuck in traffic jams is a very inefficient use of their time. By incorporating PAL-Vs into our operations, we will save time and money by reducing unproductive times. »
PRIMUS AERO aims to utilize the PAL-V Liberty not only for their own operations but also for their aircraft maintenance companies. Krainer elaborates, « Delivering top-notch service is our priority. Minimizing the downtime of our customers’ aircraft is vital. Currently, if a maintenance issue arises at an airport outside our base, someone must drive there. In Austria, this can be a long journey due to the mountainous and winding roads. By using the PAL-V to fly one of our maintenance personnel to the destination and giving them the flexibility to use the PAL-V as a service car when landed, we can greatly reduce the downtime of our clients’ aircraft. »
For PAL-V, this partnership reinforces the use-case of the PAL-V Liberty’s versatility on a global scale, as highlighted by Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V: « The PAL-V Liberty can be used for a wide range of applications. With PRIMUS AERO, they will take advantage of its ability to fly and drive to shorten commuting times and provide their customers with door-to-door air mobility, something only a PAL-V can achieve. On top of that PRIMUS AERO’s extensive expertise in aircraft maintenance positions them as a key regional partner. »
In addition to the private individual orders received by PAL-V, the company is witnessing more and more professional organizations recognizing the benefits of using a vehicle that can both fly and drive.
The PAL-V Liberty is currently undergoing an extensive test program, and the company is preparing for its first series of production vehicles that will complete the certification flight test program next year.
