The Jaunt Journey takes off like a helicopter and transitions to flight like a fixed-wing aircraft using patented Slowed-Rotor Compound technology.
L&T Technology has signed a multi-year electric air mobility contract with Jaunt Air Mobility worth over $100 million. Under the contract, LTTS will open an engineering and R&D center in the province of Quebec for the next-generation electric aircraft manufacturer to provide engineering services for the Jaunt Journey eVTOL air taxi (take-off and landing electrical verticals).
As part of Jaunt’s Urban Air Mobility (UAM) business focus, LTTS will offer global engineering services to support and build Jaunt travel. Collectively these will encompass technology areas such as power distribution system, air data management, cockpit display system, flight control system, battery management, electrification, power electronics, structural design, stress analysis, testing, certification and manufacturing engineering.
Jaunt is deploying a new generation of sustainable aircraft to meet the demand for faster urban and regional travel. The Jaunt Journey takes off like a helicopter and transitions to flight like a fixed-wing aircraft using patented Slowed-Rotor Compound technology. These new air taxis will make it possible to travel more than 110 km in the air in 25 minutes or less, with affordable travel costs for the population. The Jaunt Journey single-pilot aircraft will carry four passengers. The vehicle will provide urban air mobility, cargo delivery, military missions and medical transport.
“At Jaunt, our vision is to usher in a new-age range of city commuters that are fast, safe and convenient. This new clean and sustainable aircraft will reduce carbon emissions worldwide. Strategically, we continue to develop our tier 1 partnerships and recognize LTTS as the most suitable engineering partner, and together we are confident that we can push commercialization at scale,” said Jaunt CEO Martin Peryea.
