“…German-based Volocopter has created a VoloPort handbook detailing its design plans for urban air mobility
The company said the VoloPort design concepts will be offered to those interested in partnering with Volocopter to build and operate UAM infrastructure.
“We are looking forward to partnering with interested parties around the globe to hasten the development of a sustainable UAM vertiport network,” said Florian Reuter, CEO of Volocopter, in a press release. “I am excited to soon see our VoloPorts in operation.”
Volocopter said the handbook came together through collaboration with aviation authorities, air operators, and other industry partners to ensure the vertiports will cater to eVTOL aircraft design, performance data, and ground handling needs, including charging stations, fire and rescue services, and aircraft maintenance.
