2022 6th VFS Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure

Description

6th Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure for UAM

September 20-22, 2022

VFS is hosting its virtual 6th Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure for Urban Air Mobility (UAM). This two-day meeting is the sixth in a series of solution-focused workshops. 

This year's workshop will be based on the recent collaborative work conducted by the NASA AAM Ecosystem Community Integration Working Group on “Vertiport Location Considerations”. This effort identified some 445 considerations which will be presented in a whitepaper, “Advanced Air Mobility Vertiport Considerations: A List and Overview” at this years AIAA Aviation Forum in Chicago.

In the 1st workshop in Sept. 2019, industry representatives and regulators focused on the "defining challenges" of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, identifying key stakeholders and strategies for moving forward.

The 2nd Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure, held virtually (due to COVID-19) in a series on sponsored webinars in April and May 2020, covered foundational elements needed to support the development of safe, functional and economically viable infrastructure to support UAM applications.

The 3rd Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure, held virtually (due to COVID-19) in a series was held in September 2020, covered foundational elements needed to support the development of safe, functional and economically viable infrastructure to support UAM applications. A virtual tour of the FAA Technical Center in Atlantic City was also part of the program.  The output of the workshop was captured via audience inputs and used to set the content for the 4th workshop.

The 4th Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure was held virtually in March 2021, addressed policy changes needed to support the development of safe, functional and economically viable infrastructure to support UAM applications.

The 5th Workshop on eVTOL Infrastructure, also held virtually in September 2021, focused on infrastructure operations and safety as they relate to eVTOL aircraft capabilities and performance.
