URBAN AVIATION , AIR TAXI , EVTOL , FLYING CAR , AIR MOBILITY


2020 08 03

On line UAM event by AVIATION WEEK .

Probably almost 99% of all interest in UAM will participate there .

JETCOPTER will explain there why today instead of +270 VTOL designs , there is just 1 working .

Urban air mobility summits , webinars , talks , meetings , challenges , events , assemblies , programs , discussions , conferences ...A lot of talk , little work !  Still nothing in the air ? Hundreds of millions invested to 5 min (+15 min reserve) flight time glider+drone mixtures and what's next ? Can't fly ? Need more money ? What a pity ...

Great news from EASA regarding certification SC-VTOL . From now EASA will require new VTOL aircraft designs to be able to resist birds impact to props and to avoid risk of high energy fragments such as rotors or propellers debris after failure - brilliant ! We worked on that matter many years ago and Jetcopter duct fans will work here perfectly . Good ! Faster track to certification !

JETCOPTER military version will have even more unique capabilities . JETCOPTERS as HELICOPTERS , will be good  in both - commercial and military use .

JETCOPTER participate in VTOL developing speedup program initiated by USA Government .More info at https://agilityprime.com/index.html

USAF at https://agilityprime.com/index.html also showed interest in new kind vtols .Jetcopter could well meet their requests :


Payload: 3-8 personnel

Range: Greater than 100 miles

Speed: Greater than 100 mph

Endurance: Greater than 60 minutes


1) lower maintenance cost and time, through mechanical simplicity;

2) improved safety and declining personnel demands, using autonomy;

3) affordable quantity, based on potential mass production;

4) improved acoustics, employing distributed propulsion; 

5) greater flexibility and reduced infrastructure needs, with runway independence.

Well , at least this virus dissolved all congestion in any cities ,  buses , trains , metro empty , roads are empty , so urban mobility is solved for now .

But Jetcopter will continue its work on VTOL aircraft as we still have another problem - climate warming . Sea level rising so fast and with it will appear new challenges -  in many coast areas land will disappear and instead will appear much new islands . Connections with such will require huge numbers of VTOL aircrafts . So anyway VTOL will be requested more and more .

Jetcopter soon will publish calculations and later tests of world's most powerful radial duct fan .
We will compare airflow created by helicopter BELL 206 and Jetcopter radial fan , stay tuned .


2020 30 31

this spring Jetcopter will participate in EU funding program :


U-space capabilities and services to enable Urban Air Mobility

we invite EU companies from aviation , automotive , engineering , programming industries and business  join us and go for it . 

contact Mr Donatas Skulskis for more information .

COVID-19 will not stop our progress , got 2 structures for research and reverse engineering .





2020 03 17

Dear visitors god bless you during so challenging time with world pandemia  . We want to apologize you , as we will not publish here our latest prototype news , because competition between VTOL projects is hard , nobody wants to be copied fast. Just will tell aircraft meets and exceeds requirements for Urban air mobility aircraft , including price and mass production requirements.



2020 02 28

most active VTOL developing countries by funding budget :  UK  £125 000 000 ,  EU €20 000 000 , USA  $0 , Japan $0

2020 02 24


Jetcopter soon to join next funding event .


2020 02 07


After FFC consortia meeting .Jetcopter consortium to present whole ecosystem for flying taxies for sooner starting up :

innovative VTOL aircraft 
physical infrastructures - vertiports
data infrastructures 
autonomy and situational awareness systems - radars
modeling and simulation systems
certification

2020 01 20


Dear friends 2020 will be JETCOPTER birth year . Everything ready for prototype engineering , consortium to be made 2020 February 4-5th at

Dear friends we are glad to inform you JETCOPTER project was examined by 5 IFS aviation industry assessors and successfully confirmed to enter UK FUTURE FLIGHT CHALLENGE  , funded £125 000 000 by UK Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) programme. Next step  4-5th February 2020 at Birmingham UK , meeting with aviation industry to find consortium partners .

2019 12 17

Breakthrough day for JETCOPTER !!! More details later .


2019 12 02

Dear VTOL fans  Jetcopter team not stopped to develop it's project . We hope next year to start Jetcopter prototype engineering with aviation industry . Despite of 200 various VTOL projects presently developed in a world , still yet no info that somebody invented anything worthfull . We can't publish now all the details , but looks like we found the key to third element - sky above us . We developed fast , efficient new kind fuselage production , we will use existing , affordable , light weight and  powerful motors , with speed above 300 km/h ( 186 mph) , distance greater than 1000 km (620 miles) Jetcopter must fulfill old dream - lots of flying vehicles in our cities sky. Gentlemans - start your engines ! Future is now !

preparing for participation in 2 exiting urban VTOL aviation programs .


2019 10 01 

2 x helicopters fuselages on the way to us . One we will use for real size mock up production , the other for powertain  components layout analysis .

2019 09 05 

JETCOPTER enter phase of real size mockup production 



Jetcopter production . Green arrows - already available by aviation components , red arrow - special developed component.

While others try to invent new batteries in next decades , Jetcopter already today ready for production . Jetcopter could be first feasible , affordable , effective and practical intra and intercity VTOL aircraft . Flying taxies could start operate soon with Jetcopter !
