Jaunt Air Mobility and Flapper On-Demand Aviation Services intend to introduce Jaunt Journey aircraft to the Latin American air taxi market

Jaunt Air Mobility LLC (“Jaunt”) has signed a letter of intent with on-demand aviation company, Flapper Tecnologia, SA (“Flapper”), to purchase the electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft Jaunt Journey ( eVTOL). Following the signing of a final agreement, Jaunt will supply Flapper with up to 25 Jaunt Journey aircraft to expand Flapper’s on-demand urban air mobility (UAM) fleet in Latin American markets.

Flapper and Jaunt plan to serve several vital markets in Latin America, including Mexico City, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. By partnering with Jaunt, Flapper will aim to bring a new form of urban travel with safety and operational efficiency as top priority. Together, the companies hope to help usher in a new era of transportation in Latin America.

Paul Malicki, CEO of Flapper, said: “After extensive review of existing urban air mobility architectures, we have found Jaunt’s fixed-wing, slow-rotor design to be one of the most efficient and Jaunt Journey’s technology provides performance similar to fixed-wing design, which is perfect given the region’s short runways, rocky coastlines and high-altitude airports.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Flapper to bring a new form of urban transportation to Latin American cities,” said Simon Briceno, Chief Commercial Officer of Jaunt. “Their reputation and experience in the on-demand charter service is well known, and they have a real understanding of the growth opportunity for our zero-emission vehicles.”

Flapper brings together a fleet of over 900 certified aircraft and prides itself on having the most comprehensive charter offering in the southern hemisphere. Customers can choose from over 80 different types of jets, turboprops and helicopters and can get an instant price estimate.

Jaunt Air Mobility designs and manufactures an eVTOL based on proven idle rotor technology. The Jaunt Journey air taxi is the world’s first aircraft combining helicopter and fixed-wing flight capabilities, highlighting low noise, comfort, safety and operational efficiency. The company is one of the only eVTOL players aligned with current transport category certification rules.

“The Jaunt Journey has significant design features that allow it to fly in a variety of weather conditions,” says Martin Peryea, CEO/CTO. “A single main rotor is the most efficient form of take-off and landing and has proven capabilities in gusty wind conditions such as coasts. The aircraft offers a higher level of safety than today’s helicopters. today.”

Deployment of Jaunt Journey aircraft in the Flapper Network is subject to the parties entering into definitive definitive agreements.
