India is on the path to making a revolutionary upgrade. On Tuesday, Jyotiraditya Scindia, the Union aviation minister said that India is on the verge of creating a new revolution within the next four to five years. One will find air taxis sprawling all across the cities very soon. Over the last two years, Scindia had been working very hard to make India run on electric vehicles. Along with creating a stronger ecosystem for electric vehicles, the strong aviation network in India will also stand to be the foundation of the new revolution for urban air mobility.
On Tuesday the first step toward it was taken when a major AIRPRO Group US eVTOL which is led by Chirinjeev Kathuria an Indian-American businessman joined hands with FlyBlade India, which happens to be a chopper operator. By 2027, both of these organizations together will launch eVTOL operations across the country.
Scindia who happens to have invented the global eVTOL players has said that they are having an air mobility conference in Bengaluru. India is on the verge of making advanced revolutionary technology. And he has assured that this is going to be different from all the revolutions that India has seen to date. The concept of flying cars is soon going to become a reality for India.
On Tuesday in Bengaluru, the partnership of AIRO-FlyBlade India announced that it includes the acquisition of a hundred and fifty Jaunt of Blade India having an option for ordering a hundred aircraft to meet the demands of the project.
Chirinjeev Kathuria has further told that the electric air mobility, Jaunt air mobility along with its partnership with FlyBlade has demonstrated the ability to capture both long-term and short-term objectives. It is going to develop a sustainable future for Indian citizens. Across the various critical areas, the companies will collaborate to support the upcoming short-haul operations of mobility. This shall include energy distribution technologies and exploring the development of major infrastructure capacities for aircraft charging.
Jaunt has plans to make use of India’s current customer experience and short short-haul operations to support its journey and integration across the Indian airspace. Amit Dutta of Blade India has said that with the vast experience and the increase in congestion over the years, India has turned out to be one of the highest markets for air mobility in the world. The first major advantage will be to nurture the ecosystem for urban air mobility. Scindia too has said that the civil aviation sector of India has undergone a V-shaped recovery after Covid.
Till the year 2019, during the peak travel seasons, the highest number of domestic daily flyers had been a little above four lakhs. This current year’s March has shown a lean period where travel is concerned marking four and a half lakhs at the domestic level. Salil Gupte the president of Boeing India has said that since the average commuter in India spends more while traveling domestically so with the help of this technology India can make a big leap across this sector. All we require to create now is an ecosystem like the integrated management of airspace.
