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.

Jakob Riis, CEO of Falck said:

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.

Jump Aero has also won 3.6 million USD in contracts from the US Air Force to accelerate its technology development.

The latest 1.8 million USD Tactical Funding Increase (TACFI) award will fund the first full-scale proof-of-concept prototype.
