RYSE Aero Technologies, the ultralight eVTOL company, will exhibit at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 5-8. RYSE Aero Technologies' Director of Regulatory Affairs and Aerodynamics, Erik Stephansen will conduct daily on-site flight demonstrations in West Plaza outside the LVCC making RYSE the first eVTOL company to fly at CES.

 Mick Kowitz, CEO of RYSE Aero Technologies, commented: "Being the first aircraft to fly at CES is a big milestone for our company and product. Demonstrating the world's first aerial utility vehicle that anyone can fly at the most influential tech event in the world is an exciting opportunity for us. We have built this vehicle with the consumer in mind and we think everyone will identify with the RECON immediately."

Erik Stephansen, Director of Regulatory Affairs and Aerodynamics for RYSE Aero Technologies said: "As the world's largest innovation stage, CES provides an unparalleled opportunity to showcase the RECON's cutting-edge technology. It's a fantastic honor to be the first person to fly an eVOTL vehicle here at CES. I'm excited to conduct daily flight demonstrations at the West Hall's outside demonstration area, giving attendees a chance to see firsthand how easy and intuitive the RECON is to operate."

Classified under the FAA's Ultralight rules Part 103, the RECON is an all-electric aerial ATV designed to make flight accessible for all regardless of skill level or pilot's certification. In the 4 months since the RECON's first manned flight, RYSE has conducted numerous public flights and demonstrations at top agriculture and farming expos, enabling several enhancements to its capabilities and limitations.

Visitors to both the inside and the outdoor demo booths will have the opportunity to learn about the latest feature enhancements of the RECON including its Simplified Vehicle Operations Systems, which ensure a low learning curve for the pilot, its Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), which increases safety and reliability, as well as its redundant artificial intelligence systems and enhanced battery pack capacity.
