Jaunt Air Mobility eVTOL


Quick Summary

Jaunt Air Mobility is one of the six eVTOL Network partner for Uber Elevate. The Jaunt eVTOL, designed to meet Uber's noise and performance requirements, was originally designed by Carter Aviation, which was recently acquired by Jaunt Air Mobility. The Jaunt eVTOL utilizes Carter Aviation's slowed-rotor compound (SR/C) technology  to provide lift from the vertical rotor even in horizontal flight, and to decrease noise while increasing efficiency and safety. The Jaunt eVTOL is unique among the Uber Elevate partners in that it features only a single lift rotor.

Our Take on Jaunt Air Mobility


Carter Aviation, the original designer of the Jaunt Air Mobility eVTOL has had plenty of experience is designing, flight testing, and certifying aircraft for flight. While the design was the company's first eVTOL, it has been designing and prototyping gyrocopters (a cross between airplanes and helicopters) since as early as 1994. While the Jaunt Air Mobility eVTOL is unique in that it features a single lift rotor, this approach to meeting noise and performance requirements may give it an edge over other designs, especially in the path to certification.
