For some time, we’ve seen countless concepts of what an eVTOL air taxi may look like but this is not what you’d typically expect. Introducing Jaunt Air Mobility’s Reduced Rotor Operating Speed Aircraft, or ROSA for short.

This particular eVTOL air taxi seems to combine a helicopter and small aeroplane but it does seem to be the real deal. If you consider that safety and certification are the biggest obstacles the flying car market has to face, this eVTOL air taxi seems to be on the right track, or is it?

Back in October 2019, NASA took delivery of its first electric plane, called the X-57 Maxwell X-Plane. Based on the four-seater Tecnam P2006T conventional light aircraft, when the X-57 electric plane is fully developed, it is expected to be 500% more efficient in high-speed cruising. Also, it will produce no in-flight carbon dioxide emissions while being much quieter than most conventional aircraft.

The aerospace sector wouldn’t exist today without outsourced, precision engineering services and components. While the majority of land vehicles are designed, constructed and tested in-house, the same does not apply to most aircraft.

Considering the number and diversity of aeroplane, spacecraft, satellite and helicopter components, aerospace engineering relies heavily on production chains and outsourced projects. It’s a complex process as each part or component must be designed and built to fit in with the overall plan.
