NFT Inc. on April 15 announced it is now taking pre-orders for the ASKA, the first electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle designed for consumers.

ASKA is a new door-to-door mobility option offering the freedom to choose to travel on the road or in the air. The four-seater ASKA drives on the road like a car, capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), as well as short takeoff and landing (STOL), and flies like an aircraft.
