Martin A. Peryea | SA Symposium

About This Event
Jaunt Air Mobility LLC is developing an all-electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft designed for the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and On-Demand Mobility (ODM) markets. Jaunt Air Mobility is a Reduced-rotor Operating Speed Aircraft (ROSA™) with core technologies proven in over 250 hours of successful demonstration flights and represents the merger of the best features available from both helicopters and fixed-wing airplanes. The ROSA™ technologies include several innovative features that result in the quietest, safest, and most efficient hovering aircraft of any configuration currently being developed for UAM missions. These patented features, which allow Jaunt to operate at efficiently low tip speeds compared to conventional designs, include a 70% reduction in main rotor tip speed from hover to cruise flight, a high energy inertia rotor system and a high static thrust scimitar propeller design. In addition, Jaunt provides the safety of a fly-by-wire flight control system and the comfort of Jaunt’s patented LevelFlyTM technology, a mast tilting capability which facilitates management of the aircraft attitude throughout its flight envelope and provides a generous center of gravity (c.g.) envelope. JAM represents flight-proven aircraft technologies that are the next evolution to existing helicopters – the gold standard in hovering efficiency.

About Martin A. Peryea
Martin is responsible for the design, development and certification of Jaunt’s all-electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft suitable for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and On-Demand Mobility (ODM) markets. Jaunt Air Mobility implements a Reduced rotor Operating Speed Aircraft (ROSA™) with core patented technologies and combining the best features available from helicopters and fixed-wing airplanes. ROSA™ technologies offers several innovative features that yield the quietest, safest, and most efficient hovering aircraft than any other configuration suitable for UAM missions.

Before joining Jaunt Air Mobility, Martin was the Vice President of Engineering for Triumph Aerospace Structures, responsible for the development of advanced aerospace systems for commercial and military aircraft and positively influenced change in company strategy, technological developments, manufacturing, and cultivated new business. During his distinguished tenure with Bell Helicopter Textron, Martin became highly regarded by the vertical flight industry for his expert knowledge in all aspects of flight sciences, flight testing and aircraft certification. Martin has extensive experience collaborating with international partners and as Vice President of Commercial Engineering at Bell Helicopter in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada he formed networking relations with research institutions and universities and impacted industry trends in rotorcraft development. Throughout his career at Bell, he made significant contributions to numerous development programs which also included serving as Chairman of the Product Safety Board and as Chief Engineer on Bell’s 525 program.

Martin also served on the prestigious panel for the National Academy of Science and Engineering on Air and Ground Technology where he contributed expert evaluations and assessment of technology trends and relevancy of research being performed at DoD facilities. Martin maintains key relationships within the global aerospace industry and anticipates industry trends in aircraft development.
