Our Team

We think of a more detailed and mutually beneficial integration of the propulsor with the airframe. Our name reflects that approach. All other aircraft bolt conventional multi-blade propulsion systems onto the airframe with no synergy. FPS enables us to augment thrust and lift at the same time. It's revolutionary and the benefits are exceptional.

Why Jetoptera?

Jetoptera is building a new class of vertical and short take-off and landing (VTOL and STOL) aircraft that will disrupt the $48B helicopter industry. 

Our multi-patented (80+ granted) propulsion technology opens up applications for VTOL and STOL aircraft to go where they have never gone before– expanding the world of aerial mobility as we know it. 

VTOL and STOL aircraft are key to a wide range of commercial and military missions. Our Fluidic Propulsion System (FPS) ™ method of propulsion will not only enhance legacy aircraft and their missions, but will "lift" them to new capabilities and quieter, safer operations. 

Helicopters and tiltrotors rely on loud rotors, propellers, jets and fans, therefore restricting access to areas that may be subject to noise regulations or where operations demand higher levels of safety. Even when permitted, today’s helicopters are extremely obtrusive to local environments, for both people and wildlife. They need large take-off and landing zones due to rotor strike dangers. Additionally, the speed of these aircraft is limited due to the nature of the rotors.

In order to meet growing demands for VTOL and STOL use cases, the future of aircraft requires a new propulsion system. Jetoptera’s Fluidic Propulsion System (FPS) ™ is the solution. 

Jetoptera has created a unique propulsion system that relies on turbo compressors and fluidics, eliminating the need for rotors or propellers. Our propulsion technology will enable vertical and short takeoff and landing that is quieter, faster, and simpler than any solution on the market today. 

Jetoptera’s aircraft produce sounds 20-35 dBA lower than the quietest propeller ever devised and 40-50 dBA lower than the most silent helicopter. Not to mention, some of our innovative aircraft are 3x as fast as the fastest helicopter. 

Our Fluidic Propulsion System (FPS) ™ boosts operational efficiency while minimizing the complexity of relying on rotors or propellers. With Jetoptera, passengers and environments will be protected from noise and from exposed rotating blades. Whether flying over a city or within a rural neighborhood, aircraft with Jetoptera’s propulsion system are far quieter than legacy solutions. Aircraft made with our FPS sound like the wind, not a machine. 

Plus, we’re energy agnostic. This means aircraft with FPS won’t have to wait for battery technology to be improved to offer Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)-powered solutions that lower the emissions of CO2. Our aircraft are prepared to adopt green fuels of the future, and they also work with fuel sources that are readily available today.

Our technology opens up new applications previously off limits for helicopters due to speed, range, safety, and noise limitations. Without rotors, aircraft using FPS can operate around the clock and land in tight spaces where large rotorcraft cannot. In addition, because VTOL aircraft don’t need a runway, there is almost no limit to where we can fly to and land safely. 

The potential applications are endless.  

Our technologies create new opportunities for saving and improving the chance at life for critical patients, or search and rescue missions where time is the determination of life/death.

Aircraft with our FPS can also facilitate the delivery of humanitarian supplies, food, and medicines. Our VTOL and STOL solutions will revolutionize both the manned and unmanned helicopter markets and yield lucrative opportunities for agriculture, surveying, logistics, surveillance, and more. 

We can make the concept of an air taxi or a VTOL business jet a reality. 

Other applications include marine transportation deploying wing-in-ground effect technology up to 3x faster than a ferry.

Our technology scales from powered parafoil to regional jets.
