LYTE Aviation is partnering with Kookiejar for the development of a heavy payload cargo delivery service.
Inspired by the Swedish IKEA Concept, Kookiejar’s modular approach of building vertiports allows cities and municipalities to create an efficient network, coupled with existing and non-existing infrastructure, the company’s inexpensive solutions allow flexibility to deploy a vertiport network enabling air mobility for all.
The LA-44 SkyBus and LA-44C SkyTruck are the accumulation of three years’ R&D. The result is a vertical take-off and landing vehicle designed to be five times more fuel efficient and less noisier than current helicopters.
LYTE’s SkyBus offers a range of 620 miles (1,000km) with a max speed of 190 mph (300km/hr). The LA-44 has a tandem tilt-wing design, disrupting other futuristic looking next-gen designs. A full-scale prototype is being planned within 24 months, and serial production within 5-6 years.
“This will change entire industries, including food and pharmaceuticals. Imagine reducing cargo delivery times from nine hours on the road via truck to three hours via SkyTruck in the air. Additionally, our customers require scalable and modular vertiport and vertistop solutions, easy and quick to implement. For door to door cargo deliveries, KookieJar is the ideal solution for our SkyTruck. As we are the frontrunners now in heavy payload, point-to-point, delivery of passengers and goods, we are partnering up only with the prime infrastructure solutions on the market. KookieJar has an amazing product, vision and business approach, therefore we are very proud to fulfil this partnership, which is in complete alignment with our 10-year strategies,” said Freshta Farzam, CEO & Founder of LYTE Aviation.
“With LYTE Aviation, we got a partner to develop our infrastructure for heavy-weight drone freight transport with long range. There is a growing demand for delivery of larger items/goods and through this cooperation we can improve efficiency and reduce delivery costs,” added Michael Pettersson, KookieJar CEO.
