Jump Aero has unveiled the JA1 "Pulse", a cutting-edge all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft designed to redefine emergency medical services.

The advanced air mobility company headquartered in Petaluma, California, has been diligently working on the JA1 “Pulse” since 2019.

This game-changing eVTOL aims to significantly reduce emergency response times in rural areas, ensuring that crucial medical assistance reaches those in need within the critical 8-minute emergency response window.

The aircraft's dash speeds of 250 knots make it the fastest form of sustainable personal transportation, promising to extend the reach of life-saving services.

Seizing the opportunity.

The company announced its first commercial order from Falck Ambulance Services in a statement. Renowned for its unwavering commitment to providing emergency response and healthcare services in 26 countries across the board, the global first response business headquartered in Denmark recognized the potential of the JA1 “Pulse” and placed the first commercial order for the eVTOL.

Jakob Riis, CEO of Falck, expressed his excitement about this collaboration in a statement, saying, "Falck is excited to partner with Jump Aero to help us revolutionize the future of emergency services. By enabling professional help to reach hard-to-access locations in a timely manner, Jump Aero will help Falck to deliver improved services to our customers."

This partnership between the two trailblazing companies signifies a bold step forward in the pursuit of enhancing the quality and efficiency of emergency response operations.

An air force boost.

Jump Aero's mission to transform emergency response received a significant boost with the United States Air Force's backing.

The company secured $3.6 million in contracts from the U.S. Air Force to expedite the development of its eVTOL technology and test an “electronic parachute” to support safe eVTOL aircraft operations.

Of this, the latest $1.8 million Tactical Funding Increase (TACFI) will play a pivotal role in funding the first full-scale proof-of-concept prototype.

"Jump Aero's aircraft concept and development strategy focusing on rapid emergency response has potential for defense-related use-cases and is complementary to the other eVTOL programs that the U.S. Air Force's Agility Prime program has engaged with to date,” said Lt Col John Tekell, Agility Prime Program Lead.

The US Air Force initiative aims to accelerate the development and adoption of eVTOLs by providing commercial eVTOL developers with access to government resources.

“We look forward to working with Jump Aero to help mature their dual-use technology," the Lt Col added.

JA1 "Pulse" is designed to transport one trained professional and essential emergency equipment to unimproved landing zones in rural areas and significantly improve the reach and effectiveness of emergency services.

Jump Aero's dedication to reducing emergency response times in rural areas has taken a significant step forward with the unveiling of the JA1 "Pulse". With the support of the U.S. Air Force, this innovative eVTOL promises to bridge the gap between critical care and remote locations.

In a world where every minute counts in emergencies, Jump Aero's visionary approach could be just the lifeline that countless families and individuals in rural areas desperately need.
