Talyn Air Welcomed To The Collective
“Talyn represents the future of green mobility. It’s an honor to add them to our all-star roster of affiliated companies!” – Todd Spain, Executive Director
The Advanced Mobility Collective announces the addition of another partner organization, Talyn Air.
Talyn co-founders Jamie Gull and Evan Mucasey both spent more than five years at SpaceX working on the Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft. They have designed an innovative 100% electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft system that can fly up to five passengers more than 300 miles at 200 miles per hour. It can also haul up to 1000 lbs of payload 400 miles.
Inspired by the 2-stage rocket concept, the Talyn team created a unique two-vehicle design. A VTOL Lift vehicle carries the Cruise vehicle to cruise altitude on the front end; on the back end, it again pairs up to descend. This preserves the Cruise’s battery for point-to-point flight, while enabling flexible door-to-door take-off and landing.
Both the U.S Navy and U.S. Air Force have partnered with this impressive Los Angeles-based startup to, among other things, improve logistics.
This tech translates directly to The Collective’s mission and focus areas. The Collective’s mission is to drive the design and development of economically sustainable operations by interconnecting the essential components of advanced mobility to deliver impactful outcomes. The Collective’s two main focus areas are healthcare delivery and disaster management and resiliency.
When wildland firefighters need rapid resupply or a hospital needs swift organ delivery to save a life, speed matters. Talyn’s eVTOL system can make a difference in these and other scenarios, in a socially responsible way. Talyn’s CEO Gull adds, "Talyn is excited to partner with The Collective to bring new eVTOL capability and technology to market to expand healthcare, fight wildfires, and move logistics forward for a better world. Our world’s first dual-vehicle architecture will enable new and unique capabilities."
The Collective imagines a world where people and goods move as fluidly as data through the internet. To do this, the community integrates the appropriate mode of vehicles and operations at the most optimal point in the ecosystem’s roadmap.
“By embracing new technologies, such as Talyn’s eVTOL system, we plan to eliminate food deserts, make specialty healthcare readily available to all, and better manage man-made disasters at scale. With Talyn, we’ll do all of this faster...and greener.” - Todd Spain, Executive Director
