VOLATUS AEROSPACE CORP. ANNOUNCES CLOSING OF OVERSUBSCRIBED FINANCING FOR GROSS PROCEEDS OF $4.2M AND PROVIDES CORPORATE UPDATE

Volatus Aerospace Corp.

Volatus Aerospace Corp. (TSXV: VOL) (OTCQB: VLTTF) (“ Volatus ” or the “ Company ”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced marketed public offering (the “ Offering ”) of 11,171,812 units of the Company (the “ Units ”), inclusive of 60,612 Units forming part of the over-allotment option, at a price of $0.36 per Unit for gross proceeds of approximately $4,021,852. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “ Common Share ”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “ Warrant ”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances, one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Company has applied to list the Warrants (the “ Supplemental Listing ”) for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “ TSXV ”) and anticipates the Warrants to be trading on the TSXV under the symbol VOL.WT.A on or about October 13, 2022. The Offering was led by Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., as lead agent and sole bookrunner, and a syndicate of agents, including Integral Wealth Securities Limited (collectively, the “ Agents ”). In connection with the Offering, the Company: (i) issued the Agents an aggregate of 879,475 compensation warrants, each of which is exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.36 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance; and (ii) paid the Agents an aggregate cash commission of $316,610.97. The Offering was completed pursuant to the Company’s (final) short form prospectus dated September 16, 2022 (the “ Prospectus ”). A copy of the Prospectus can be obtained on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Company is also pleased to announce that it has closed its previously contemplated concurrent brokered private placement of 569,222 Units on the same terms as the Offering (the “ Concurrent Private Placement ”) for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $204,920. The Company will not be proceeding with its previously announced concurrent non-brokered private placement of Units of up to $500,000. All securities issued in connection with the Concurrent Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities laws. The Offering and the Concurrent Private Placement are subject to final approval of the TSXV. The Company will use the net proceeds of the Offering and Concurrent Private Placement for inventory, factory operations, warehouse improvements, equipment for services and training, technology development, acquisitions, working capital and general corporate purposes, as more particularly set out in the Prospectus. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to sell any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “ U.S. Securities Act ”) or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold within the United States, or to or for the account or benefit of any U.S. person or any person in the United States, unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available. “ United States ” and “ U.S. Person ” are as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act. Certain insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 555,600 Units under the Offering. This constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 (“ Policy 5.9 ”) and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“ MI 61-101 ”). The Company has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (and Policy 5.9) contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101 in respect of such insider participation. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering, as the details and amounts of the insider participation were not finalized until closer to the closing and the Company wished to close the Offering as soon as practicable for sound business reasons. Corporate Update Volatus announces the granting of 200,000 stock options to its new board member, Lt. General (ret'd) the Honourable Andrew Leslie. Each stock option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for an exercise price of $0.36 at any time until October 5, 2027. Fifty percent (50%) of the stock options shall vest on the first anniversary of the date of grant with the remaining fifty percent (50%) on the second anniversary of the date of grant.

New Economic Analysis on Mexico’s Proposed Ban on Biotech Corn Reveals Broad Consumer & Industry Impacts

Biotechnology Innovation Organization

A coalition of leading food and agriculture industry stakeholders in both Mexico and the United States released a new study revealing the broad impacts of Mexico’s proposed ban on biotech corn. The report, which was conducted in September 2022 by World Perspectives Inc., reveals that the proposed restrictions would adversely impact food security in North America and raise consumer prices for corn, basic foods, and other critical products derived from corn, particularly in Mexico. Beyond direct commodity impacts, the study shows that banning all biotech corn could affect Mexico’s GDP to the point that it would fall by $11.72 billion over 10 years, and economic output would be reduced by $19.39 billion. Additionally, there would be an annual loss of 56,958 jobs, which would reduce labor income by $2.99 billion. “Like any other North American sector, agriculture must continue to innovate to meet 21 st -century challenges. That is why we believe in science-based agricultural policies that improve agricultural production and sustainability,” said Juan Cortina Gallardo, President of the National Agricultural Council of Mexico. “The U.S. - Mexico trading partnership has contributed greatly to the food security and economic vitality of both countries,” said National Corn Growers Association President Chris Edgington. “That’s why we should do everything possible to ensure that the relationship continues in a fair and mutually beneficial way.” Should the proposed restrictions be implemented, the study found that the average cost of corn would increase 19% and tortilla prices would rise 16% on average. In the first year of the ban, non-GM corn prices would rise 48% to $8.14/bushel and Mexico would pay an additional $571 million for imported corn. Price increases in corn protein, fiber, oil, and thousands of processed foods distributed by tens of thousands of Mexican food retailers would all incur price increases. Presently, roughly 10% of the Mexican population lacks access to adequate food. Under the proposed ban, this level is expected to double or triple in the nine poorest Mexican states. The price of corn is the single largest indicator of access to food for Mexicans in the lowest income decile who spend roughly 52% of their funds on food. “International trade is an essential part of U.S. economic activity – it supports millions of American jobs, drives economic growth, and increases global competitiveness,” said Corn Refiners Association President and CEO John Bode. “This latest report underscores the necessity of Mexican access to genetically modified corn, for both our countries’ collective success and food security in North America. The U.S. and Mexican food and agriculture industries are eager for dialogue on the proposed restrictions and to strengthen cooperation on this issue.” Additionally, the findings indicate that Mexican livestock production would contract, declining by an average of 1.2% annually. Poultry production in Mexico would fall 17% in total while hog production would contract 13%. Beef and dairy sectors would see their industries’ outputs fall 9% and 8%, respectively. For Mexico’s poorest populations, prices could rise to the point that eggs become a luxury item which could cause the first drop in egg demand since 2017. “We have seen the impact Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has had on global food prices. Unfortunately, Mexico’s barriers to biotechnology innovation will only exacerbate food price inflation for its most vulnerable citizens by disrupting supply chains and impeding producers’ access to new technologies to bolster yields,” added Dr. Michelle McMurry-Heath, President and CEO of BIO. “To ensure producers have access to the technologies necessary to strengthen food security, improve sustainability, and tackle climate change, we urge Mexico to return to timely and science-based risk assessments of biotech traits for agricultural products, consistent with its international trade obligations.” Sponsors of the study include Mexico’s National Agriculture Council, the U.S. Grains Council, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, the National Corn Growers Association, Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), CropLife America, the Corn Refiners Association, Mexican Association of Feeders of Bovine Cattle Ac., Local Agricultural Association of Matamoros, AC, Association of Suppliers of Agricultural Products Mexico, AC (Appamex), Mexican Association of Seeds, AC (Amsac), National Association of Manufacturers of Food for Animal Consumption, SC (Anfaca), National Chamber of Industrialized Corn (Canami), National Council of Manufacturers of Balanced Food and Animal Nutrition, AC (Conafab), Crop Protection Science and Technology, AC (Proccyt), National Swine Unification, Ac (Opormex), Mexican Union of Agrochemical Manufacturers And Formulators, Ac (Umffaac), Mexican Association of Food Producers, AC (Amepa).

Ready for Ron Announces Military & Veterans Initiative

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, announced a new initiative to recruit military, veterans, and families to sign its petition to encourage Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ‘Veterans Ready for Ron’ led by Captain Bob “Shoebob” Carey, US Navy (Ret), will actively engage veterans, military and family voters, and veterans organization leaders. Carey had previously led the RNC’s highly successful 2016 Veterans programs, and numerous veterans and military engagement campaigns. Governor DeSantis is a U.S. Navy veteran, deploying to Iraq in support of the Navy’s SEALs, receiving a Bronze Star Medal, and as Governor is the Commander in Chief of the 12,000 members of the Florida National Guard. “Supporting Ron DeSantis is an easy decision for those who wore the uniform for our country,” stated Captain Bob “Shoebob” Carey, leader of the Veterans Ready for Ron effort. “His record supporting veterans and those in military service is unmatched.” “America needs Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President in 2024, to rebuild and restore our military and honor the pledges this country made to those military veterans once they leave service. He is a decorated veteran, runs one of the largest National Guard forces in the country, and tries to make up for VA ineptitude by building additional veteran assistance programs within his state of Florida,” Carey continued. As a Member of Congress, then Representative DeSantis was a leader on veterans issues, getting bills passed into law that restored combat wounded veterans’ unjustly reduced severance benefits, made Stolen Valor acts a crime, getting a Washington, DC memorial for veterans of the Global War on Terror, getting the VA to pay for service dogs for disabled veterans, and awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to American Ace fighter pilots. Veterans Ready for Ron is recruiting and deploying prominent veterans to lead a public effort to raise awareness, recruit additional veteran and military family voters, and build the veteran organization leadership support for a DeSantis candidacy. “I am thrilled to be working with Bob on this important initiative,” stated Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist Ed Rollins. “His record of engaging with patriotic Americans who selflessly served our country is impressive. We are glad he is on the Ready for Ron team and look forward to building a movement together.” Bob Carey was a driving force behind the most successful military and veteran voter engagement campaigns in modern American political history. For the 2014 and 2016 campaigns, Bob Carey was National Director of Military and Veteran Engagement for the Republican National Committee, recruiting 50 full-time veteran staffers nationwide, more than 400 active veteran volunteer leaders, more than 500 members of state and regional military and veteran “Task Forces” to support the Republican National Committee and the Trump election effort, while also identifying 1.8 million voters nationwide in various databases as military and veteran voters. Republicans won the veteran vote by 27 percentage points in 2016, the greatest margin of victory ever. “I’m asking all military and veterans to join me in convincing Governor Ron DeSantis, U.S. Navy combat veteran, to bring to the rest of the country his leadership and understanding of what the military and veterans need from their Commander in Chief,” Carey continued. The declining economy, inflation, crime, and erosion of the American military significantly impact veterans and military families.
