YASA was founded on the principle that small, light electric motors would play a growing role in meeting both the strict emissions targets being set globally in a wide range of industries and the requirement for greater efficiency through electrification.

The Company was incorporated in 2009 based on a unique patented motor technology invented by the Companys founder and CTO Dr Tim Woolmer whilst studying for his DPhil at Oxford University.

Today, YASAs revolutionary proprietary Axial Flux technology provides compact, lightweight and powerful electric motors & controllers that support a variety of aerospace electrification applications for our clients - with an innovation roadmap of even lighter and more efficient products on the way that will power the future of Urban Air Mobility
