Working with Jaunt, Jaunt Canada and the Canadian government, LTTS will provide end-to-end engineering support in structural design analysis and certification to develop the all-electric Jaunt Journey VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft.
LTTS is a pure-play global engineering services company. LTTS has a proven track record in developing high performance engineered solutions for global aerospace and defense companies for over a decade and supporting mission critical defense programs. With offices around the world, including Toronto, Canada, LTTS plans to open R&D offices in Montreal to advance Jaunt in the design, development and production of the Jaunt Journey.
Jaunt Air Mobility is deploying a new generation of aircraft to meet the demand for faster urban and regional travel. The Jaunt Journey takes off like a helicopter and transitions to flight like a fixed-wing aircraft using patented Slowed-Rotor Compound (SRC) technology. This new air transport makes it possible to fly approximately 70 miles in the air in 25 minutes or less, with affordable travel costs for the public. The Jaunt Journey, a single-pilot aircraft, will carry four passengers. The vehicle will provide urban air mobility, cargo delivery, military missions and medical transport.
Martin Peryea, Jaunt CEO and CTO, said“At Jaunt, our vision is to usher in a new-age range of city commuters that are fast, safe and convenient. This new clean and sustainable aircraft will reduce carbon emissions worldwide. Strategically, we continue to grow our Tier 1 partnerships and recognize LTTS as the most suitable engineering partner, and together we are confident to drive commercialization at scale.”
Amit Chadha, CEO and Managing Director, L&T Technology Services, commented“This partnership marks an important milestone for the LTTS team, given the tremendous opportunities opening up in advanced air mobility (AAM) and drone services that are emerging as alternatives to increasingly crowded ground mobility in We believe this program will set the benchmark for future AAM projects, and our team is excited to build on this important commitment with Jaunt, with the ultimate goal of making urban travel safer, greener, more efficient and more reliable”.
