CAE to Provide Simulation Technologies for Development of Jaunt Air Mobility's eVTOL Aircraft

CAE will design and develop Jaunt Aircraft Systems Integration Lab (JASIL) for Jaunt Air Mobility’s new Journey all-electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

Certification plans for the Jaunt Journey are set to begin in 2023 and culminate in 2026 with entry-in-service (EIS) expected in early 2027.

As part of the agreement, CAE and Jaunt Air Mobility intend to build an engineering simulator which will accelerate cockpit design and system development, and will reduce the airworthiness flight test time. The JASIL program is designed to derisk the aircraft program's schedule and manage development costs by identifying integration issues and proving failure modes early in the program.

The Journey aircraft is designed to deliver safe, efficient, and reliable performance while reducing carbon emissions. It combines the performance of an airplane with the vertical take-off and landing efficiency of a helicopter to meet the growing demands for faster travel times over urban and regional areas.
