Jaunt Air Mobility to explore hybrid-electric aircraft with VerdeGo Aero

Jaunt Air Mobility signed a memorandum of understanding with VerdeGo Aero to explore the development of hybrid-electric aircraft. Jaunt Air Mobility is developing an electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft built around a large central rotor for hover and fully vertical flight, similar to a helicopter. The torque generated by the main rotor is countered not by a tail rotor, but by 4 small wing-mounted electric motors. These are also used for forward propulsion. The all-electric craft is said to be 100 times quieter than a helicopter and will fly 980lbs of payload (cargo or passengers) over a range of…
