Jump Aero has unveiled its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) emergency response aircraft, which has been commercially ordered by Falck Ambulance Services.
The company has also announced that the first full-scale prototype of this aircraft will be partially funded by the United States Air Force.
The new eVTOL design, named the JA1 Pulse has been in development since 2019.
It can travel at speeds of up to 250 knots with the aim of helping medical professionals arrive at the scene of a rural emergency with lifesaving equipment as quickly as possible.
Falck, a first-response business headquartered in Denmark and operating in 26 countries globally, has purchased an option for the first commercial delivery of this aircraft.
“Falck is excited to partner with Jump Aero to help us revolutionise the future of emergency services. By enabling professional help to reach hard-to-access locations in a timely manner, Jump Aero will help Falck to deliver improved services to our customers.”
