Welcome to Jetcopter !
helicopters are VTOL aircrafts we can't live without , created in 1930's still widely in use . We engineering new generation urban copter - more compact , more safe , more efficient , more affordable for private or fleet use .
Why Jetcopter ?
Urban flights will require additional capabilities , VTOL aircrafts will operate very close to pedestrians and buildings . It's big question if flying exotic electric air vehicles will become Urban Air Mobility. Such an initial move of mimicking the existing practices of helicopters air-taxi will not morph into the trillion dollar future that the UAM investors dream of. Helicopters already do urban avia , they just need to be technically update , to be :
* much safe
* more efficient
* more compact
* more affordable
* faster to take off
* more simply to pilot
* more convenient for passengers
* more safe to airtaxi pilot
Why not multicopters ?
Average helicopter rotor is 12 m diameter , that is about 113 m2 disc area . Most of multicopters have small up to 2 m diameter rotors , which have 3 m2 disc area ! That is 37 time smaller than helicopter ! They must have 37 x 2 m rotors to get same lifting disk area ! Smaller is disc area , more power you will need to take off .

Why Jetcopter will be better urban VTOL ?
Why Jetcopter will be more efficient VTOL ?
JETcopter will be able to use air lifting power , helicopter not .
2 x 450 hp automotive with duplicated fuel ,
cooling , power supply systems .
Reliable and less mechanically complex
no swash plates , no cyclic , no hydraulics , no clutch .
Take off : helicopter mode or plane mode
fly as plane
will be able to land at auto parking ,
will be able to maneuver safe between cars
powered by reliable automotive motors ,
may not need helicopter pilot licence
much easier to pilot
Production costs ( compared with 6 place helicopter ) :
rotors - 70 % cheaper
carbon fiber fuselage - 50 % cheaper
motors - 90 % cheaper
predicted 60-70 % lower than helicopter
equipped with 2 parachute life saving system
fuselage all made from carbon fiber
Tilt wings with 4 vectoring nozzles
