ConOps for eVTOL Operations – DRONELIFE
Today, Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) leader Wisk Aero announced a partnership with vertiport leader Skyports for the integration of autonomous, electric, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft operations at vertiports (landing sites for eVTOL aircraft) and other ground-based infrastructure. This is the first partnership of its kind between a vertiport developer-operator and an autonomous eVTOL developer in the U.S.
Recognizing that autonomy is essential to unlocking the full potential of AAM, Wisk and Skyports are working to enable vertiports and other ground-based infrastructure to support autonomous operations. The partners are examining areas such as physical aircraft considerations, passenger accommodation, schedule management, ground operations management, final approach and takeoff management, navigational aids, situational awareness, contingency management, and…
