Whisper Aero heads up consortium bringing eVTOL regional services to Tennessee

The ReConnecTN coalition, including eVTOL manufacturer Whisper Aero, has launched at the Tennessee Smart Mobility Expo in Nashville.

According to Teknovation Biz: “ It is a multi-entity, cross-disciplinary coalition committed to working together to pull passenger and cargo transportation into the third dimension by leveraging the use of regional airports, distributed electric propulsion, battery technology, and automation.

“The effort is led by Whisper Aero, the fast-growing next generation propulsion company that has operations in Nashville and Crossville; JSX, a provider of “hop-on jet service” that includes Nashville; Reliable Robotics, a company focused on fully automated operation of regional cargo aircraft; and other Tennessee mobility leaders. Together, the partners believe these efforts can position Tennessee at the forefront of innovation in the mobility, aviation, and energy sectors. The goal is to provide Tennessee residents with fast, affordable, hassle-free travel with new access to economic opportunities, statewide connectivity, and energy resilience.”

According to a news release :“For a state that spans a length of 440 miles, traveling across Tennessee can be time consuming, and very few air routes currently exist to efficiently and affordably connect the state. Regional air mobility is increasingly seen as a potential solution to this challenge, but those within Tennessee have sought a united path forward.”

The ReConnecTN coalition has been formed to tackle five focus areas critical to the success of regional air mobility: aviation innovations; existing airports; more mobility; economic growth; and energy resilience.”
