Current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations allow for aircraft to have a provision/exemption for “Public Aircraft”. This is the loophole EJA will use in marketing its air taxi system, as well as its sale of current Ultralight-class aircraft to first responders.
Public Aircraft means that any government agency, Federal, State or Local, can own/lease/operate aircraft under its own rules, outside of those imposed by the FAA. Thus, for example, a City like Austin could buy or lease through an agreed-upon financing arrangement, a fleet of VertiCycles and VertiCoupes and could, under today’s regulations, operate a fully-functional aerial taxi system in its jurisdictional boundaries.
EJA would sell or set up a lease/financing option with the City or County, along with installing a network of VertiStops, and share each app-driven purchase’s revenues with the government agency.
Additionally, EJA can sell EJ-1 jetpacks to citizens that can fly in urban environments as long as they remain less than 10 feet off the ground, considered below “navigable airspace” and can be classified as "gravity mitigation devices". Thus, a person in a city could take off from their front yard, fly over traffic but still below power lines, etc., across fields and directly to a VertiStop, where they could meet an aerial taxi and go on from there to their destination. They could also leave their EJ-1 at the station in a locker, with a charger to recharge their batteries for later, or simply take their EJ-1 with them in the taxi.
Additionally, Tesla or charger-compatible car owners could drive to the VertiStop and use the Super Charger to charge their own cars at that station, leaving them there until they return from their air taxi journey.
