Jaunt Air Mobility Acquires Carter Copter Rights

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Company Unveiled At The Vertical Flight Society Symposium In January

A startup Urban Air Mobility (UAM) company has acquired the rights to the Carter slowed-rotor compound (SR/C) technology developed by Carter Aviation Technologies for personal and air taxi aircraft.

Jaunt Air Mobility was introduced at the Vertical Flight Society symposium in January. Little is known about the company other than it was founded last may by New Jersey engineer and entrepreneur Kaydon Stanzione. It's website is only a single landing page with no other information provided.

Stanzione and Uber Elevate director of engineering Mark Moore spoke to Rotor & Wing at the VFS symposium. If the company can secure venture capital funding, about which Stanzione is very optimistic, Uber Elevate may soon have a sixth partner.

The technology acquired by Jaunt is the similar to that used by Carter's Personal Air Vehicle, which is still undergoing flight tests. The PAV first flew in 1998.

Moore told Rotor & Wing that the acoustics of the SR/C configuration are one of the things that make the Jaunt concept attractive. Low disc loading an slow tip speeds would make such an aircraft more palatable to urban residents concerned about aircraft noise.

As designed, the SR/C aircraft would carry five passengers and cruise at about 150 knots, according to Carter Aviation Technologies. It also makes it possible for the aircraft to perform "no incident" autorotation landings, rather than rely on airframe parachutes for safety, according to eVTOL insiders.
