Vertiko Mobility has announced the launch of a “structuring” project that will “be used to enter into service drone and eVTOL flights, in the niche of advanced air mobility.”
“The project’s first on-the-ground initiative is the deployment of a research and development corridor linking the City of Joliette to the Atikamekw First Nation of Manawan” according to a press release. “The aim is to set up the necessary facilities for the development and operation of new electrically powered air vectors such as the Jaunt Journey.
“The deployment of an air corridor will address a critical need in the Manawan community for faster access to health care and medicines.
“The development of the ecosystem is supported by Aéro Montréal, the Consortium de Recherche et d’Innovation en Aérospatiale du Québec (CRIAQ), as well as the Drone Niche of Excellence. Three major areas of research and development are underway: the drone or air taxi, the vertiport, and the control and management system.”
