Today, Urban-Air Port® (UAP) released details of its collaboration with Micro Nav, global operators in simulation of air traffic management and airspace operations. This partnership the company says will allow UAP to precisely demonstrate the functionality of their Next-Gen AirOne vertiport, showing how it can be successfully integrated in real-time with flight schedules and aviation operations to help international, domestic and regional airport clients seamlessly integrate next-generation advanced air mobility infrastructure into their operations.
“Preparing for the first eVTOL routes, together, UAP and Micro Nav will develop a vertiport simulation that illustrates eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) aircraft ground movements for the next generation AirOne vertiport. The simulation will cover one of the most important elements this industry needs to fully grasp – the real eVTOL ground operations” according to a press release.
“The team will test ground operations for each eVTOL aircraft, from landing on the TLOF (landing pad) and descending via UAP’s revolutionary Vertical Airfield, to the hangar doors opening and the minimal push-backs of the aircraft to/from the adjacent hangar. Micro Nav’s experience in offshore carrier-based operations simulation for the UK Ministry of Defence’s F35 aircraft provides unique experience and exceptional precision in high-pressure, rapid turnaround scenarios. UAP and Micro Nav will use the simulation to train its operators, clients and demonstrate how a UAP vertiport provides a viable and sustainable business case for eVTOL operators.”
