Dallas’ Jaunt Air Mobility Advances in AFWERX HSVTOL Challenge With MAV 55

by | Feb 8, 2022
Jaunt is one of only 11 companies out of 200 entrants to get a next-stage investment from the High-Speed Vertical Take-Off and Landing Concept Challenge. Its solution, the MAV 55, uses a patented slow rotor technology that delivers a lift-to-drag ratio up to five times better than a helicopter—and ultra-low noise that's "practically imperceptible" when flying.

Beyond defense, the startup founded in 2019 is also building commercial eVTOL aircraft that can move both people and packages.
