Achieve ultra-low community noise to make feasible close proximity, vertical flight operations as an accepted urban commuting solution. Global trends are pushing to the growth of mega-cities with increased urbanization; however, average speeds across cities are slowing down as transportation solutions fall behind, limiting productivity and future growth. As cities have progressed, they’ve grown upwards to achieve increased density; similarly, transportation options need to also expand upwards to embrace three dimensions. Only vertical flight capabilities offer the potential to achieve rapid door-to-door travel with limited infrastructure and effectively no cost highways on-demand. But current solutions (helicopters and tilt-rotors) have been limited to noisy, expensive, complicated, uncomfortable, and relatively dangerous vehicle solutions which are shunned by communities. Vertical flight needs to be completely re-thought due to a transformative shift in propulsion (electric) and control (autonomy) technologies which fundamentally change how these aircraft can be designed, and what capabilities they possess. A new type of vertical lift propulsor is being designed/analyzed/developed to ideally match up to electric motor characteristics, with unique acoustic characteristics that offer the potential for breakthrough community noise.
