Ep18: Whisper Aero: When Flight Tech Goes Quiet
By Joe Sweeny
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.
