Jaunt Air Mobility and VerdeGo Aero of Collaborate on Hybrid Electric Aircraft
The move represents an expansion of opportunities for customers to meet enhanced mission requirements, the companies said.
Jaunt Air Mobility is based in New Jersey and VerdeGo Aero is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Jaunt Air Mobility signed a memorandum of understanding with VerdeGo Aero to explore the development of a hybrid-electric aircraft.
The combined technologies of Jaunt Air Mobility and VerdeGo’s hybrid powertrain offer customers the opportunity to fulfill a variety of market segments and missions.
Jaunt and VerdeGo plan to develop a hybrid-electric version of the Jaunt aircraft using VerdeGo’s hybrid-electric diesel (Jet-A) generator system combined with the same battery systems being used for the Jaunt Journey.
The added energy from the hybrid system will enable significant enhancements to mission capability for passenger, cargo, and military variants.
