Ep18: Whisper Aero: When Flight Tech Goes Quiet

By Joe Sweeny

Flying Cars!

On this episode of Just Raised, Joe Sweeny interviews Ian Villa, Founder of Whisper Aero. Whisper is building silent engines for EVTOLs – electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles.

We dive into how EVTOLs work – from batteries to electric engines, why electric aircraft are cheaper than jet fuel powered helicopters (hint: It’s the jet fuel), and what cities will look like if these vehicles start taking off, which could be as soon as 2024.
