Overview

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

Vertiports will be a crucial enabler for Urban 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). 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.
