Our Take on the Starling Jet
The Starling Jet, part of a larger initiative by Samad Aerospace which is creating a fleet of eVTOLs/hybrid VTOLs, is the flagship of the fleet - and aims to address a slightly different problem than most eVTOLs currently do. The Starling Jet aims to solve the airport to business/residence commute problem with the <1,000nm journey simultaneously, bringing you door-to-door over substantially greater distances than other eVTOL's aim to cover. While this goal is unique, there are considerable challenges for the Starling Jet to overcome to achieve success.
