Skyports has released a render of the world’s first-ever full-scale, life-sized vertiport prototype.
The real thing will be shown at this year’s ITS World Congress 2019.
Built in collaboration with Volocopter GmbH, the VoloPort will demonstrate what the infrastructure for urban air taxis will look like in the not-too-distant future.
The VoloPort will:
• Enable real-life testing of the full customer journey to perfect the passenger experience;
• Showcase planned customer services, including pre-flight checks, passenger lounges and boarding procedures;
• Allow practical testing of ground operations and services, including battery swaps and charging, maintenance, safety and security.
Vertiports are the only physical infrastructure required for air taxis to operate in smart cities like Singapore. Skyport promises several tours of the VoloPort and invites visitors to experience it for themselves.
