Vertiko and Jaunt “funded to research eVTOL corridor between Joliette and Manawan, Quebec”

According to Rotomedia.com, Vertiko Mobilité and Jaunt Air Mobility have been granted financial support for up to CD2 million of the CD4.55 million to accelerate the development of advanced air mobility and enable business models linked to drones and air taxis in Quebec, Canada.

“Following the announcement of the launch of the CORRIDAIR Project on September 8, 2023, as part of the Volaria event, Vertiko Mobility and Jaunt Air Mobility have joined forces to identify the various technical and technological aspects required to set up an infrastructure for the commercial operation of drones performing BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) flights,” says the report. “The development of the ecosystem, comprising Vertiko Mobilité, Jaunt Air Mobility, Thales, CAE, ASDR, Taïga Telecom, Drone Express, SCI Canada and the real estate partners, was supported by the Consortium de recherche et d’innovation en aérospatiale au Québec (CRIAQ).

The aim is to test, on a research and development corridor between Joliette and Manawan (CORRIDAIR), the infrastructure needed to operate BVLOS drone flights in complete safety.

“The CORRIDAIR project is an important step in placing Quebec at the forefront of drone and air cab technologies. By investing in this infrastructure, we’re not only advancing the technology, we’re also paving the way for viable, sustainable business models capable of meeting the needs of isolated regions,” said Pierre Fitzgibbon, Minister of the Economy, Innovation and Energy, Minister responsible for Regional Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Greater Montreal Area.
