Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing air vehicle (eVTOL) are emerging and will certainly revolutionise urban  and regional mobility in the coming decades.

Vertiports will be a crucial enabler for Urban and Advanced Air Mobility, but while regulations do exist to some extent for eVTOL aircraft, very few regulations or guidelines exists for vertiport design and operations or are still under development (e.g. by EASA and FAA). As of today, it is in most cases of high interest for eVTOL manufacturers or potential vertiport operators to conduct initial feasibility studies and assessments of the proposed vertiport’s infrastructure and operations, and to obtain approval from the responsible civil aviation authorities.

airsight, as a world leading aviation consultancy, is a pioneer in eVTOL vertiports planning, design and operations. We assists the most advanced eVTOL aircraft manufacturers as well as many other aviation clients in planning such infrastructure (temporary or fixed) and develop associated concept of operations.

B) Internal Audits as a Service:

airsight as renowned aviation audit service provider is ready to support Vertiport Operators with their internal audits. 

C) Safety Management and Compliance Support:

Using over 20 years of experience in Safety Management and Compliance Monitoring airsight is ready and capable to support Vertiport Operators.

D) Vertiport Manual and Documentation:

To standardise Vertiport Operations a well-founded documentation structure is required - not only to satisfy the Competent Authority but also to cater for safe and effiicent operations.

A) Vertiport Data:

airsight’s resident experts on aerodrome data will proficiently support you with any challenges you are facing regarding data quality, interfaces, NOTAMs and other requirements.

Our very own “Safety & Operations” Department will support you with any projects related to the operational challenges of Vertiports.

C) Vertiport Maintenance:

Vertiport operators should implement a comprehensive and robust maintenance programme covering the airside infrastructure, fixed and mobile equipment and especially the aeronautical ground lights and markings. airsight supports you with the setup of a maintenance programme down to the last detail.

A) Vertiport Training Programme:

airsight’s consultant team can look back on numerous projects related to the creation of training programmes. As a training organisation itself airsight is in the best position to support Vertiport Operators with setting up a comprehenive training programm for their personnel.
