DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A company that recently relocated from New Jersey to Dallas is developing an air taxi operation with plans to get off the ground in six years. The aircraft, being developed by Jaunt Air Mobility, takes off and lands vertically like a helicopter and flies like an airplane. Martin Peryea, Jaunt’s CEO said, “You can think of it as a helicopter with big wings on it.” The aircraft is all electric, powered by a battery. Jaunt COO Jesse Crispino said, “We’re at the cusp of the next revolution with electric flight.”
The company plans to start providing air taxi aircraft in 2027, saving commuters time especially during a busy morning or evening rush hour by flying instead of driving.
