The Vertical Flight Society (VFS) reports that it is in the final stages of preparation for the latest in a series of highly successful workshops focused on advanced air mobility (AAM) infrastructure. The 6th Workshop on AAM Infrastructure will be held Sept. 20-22, 2022, in Dayton, Ohio, at the Marriott at the University of Dayton.
In its press release VFS says it “is the world’s only technical society dedicated to advancing helicopters and other rotorcraft, drones, electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) and other AAM aircraft, and related technologies. As a global leader on eVTOL for nearly a decade, VFS recognized eVTOL infrastructure as a defining challenge in 2019, and has provided foundational support in defining requirements and promoting understanding of the key infrastructure challenges and means to address them.”
According to Rex Alexander, VFS Infrastructure Advisor, “The overall theme for this year’s two-day infrastructure workshop will be centered around the recently published NASA whitepaper, ‘Advanced Air Mobility Vertiport Considerations: A List and Overview.’” The whitepaper, the VFS says is a direct product of NASA’s highly successful AAM Ecosystem Working Groups (AEWGs) program and outlines over 500 different considerations for evaluating and determining vertiport site selection which were developed and compiled by nearly a hundred subject matter experts.
