Eric Côté, President of Jaunt Canada, was recently elected as a member of Aéro Montréal’s board, noting the latter organization’s goal of positioning Quebec as a centre for advanced air mobility (AAM).
“It is an honour to join Aéro Montréal’s board and contribute to bringing AAM to Quebec and the world,” said Côté. “At Jaunt, we have committed to designing, building, and certifying the Jaunt Journey in Canada due to the support of organizations like Aéro Montreal, the government, and access to a strong aviation community.”
Aéro Montréal, an organization designed to promote and support Quebec’s aerospace cluster, was created in 2006 with a range of industry stakeholders including companies, educational and research institutions, associations and unions.
“We have assembled an incredible pool of expertise to realize our vision of building Quebec’s reputation as a centre of excellence in AAM,” said Mélanie Lussier, President of Aéro Montréal.
“Eric’s global business experience and the company’s mission to develop an eVTOL here make him a very valuable asset.”
The development of Jaunt Air Mobility’s aircraft, the Jaunt Journey, will be highlighted by Aéro Montreal at the Paris Air Show as a part of the Canadian Pavilion. This includes Jaunt’s proprietary Slowed Rotor Compound technology. Jaunt Air Mobility leads the electric air mobility division for the AIRO Group, which recently entered an agreement and plan of merger with Kernel Group Holdings to list on the Nasdaq.
