Doug Shipley, Member of Parliament for Barrie – Springwater – Oro-Medonte (“BSOM”), visited Volatus Aerospace’s Lake Simcoe Regional Airport (“LSRA”) facility yesterday. Andy Buck, Vice President and General Manager of Volatus Flight Systems, was there to meet with Doug and give him a tour of the space.
Volatus had their unmanned aircraft E100 and M100 on display, alongside their Citation X.
Volatus’ investment in the BSOM region will generate twenty and more well-paying jobs. In addition, they are proud of their partnership with leaders in BSOM, as together, they invest in LSRA’s long-term economic and innovation hub.
The 32,000 sq. ft. hangar at the LSRA will facilitate the assembly and integration of RPAS components and systems, alongside Volatus’ design, research, and development. Their manned aircraft charter management business is also operating from LSRA.
