VTOL & Vertiport
What is a eVTOL Vertiport?
A location designed to specifically support the operations, eg. landing, takeoff, parking and taxiing of eVTOL (electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing) aircraft.
Different than an airport or heliport in that a eVTOL aircraft:
Does not use liquid fuel:
- Does not require a foam fire suppression system
- Does not require a fuel spill kit
- Does not require a fuel water separator
Are all electric aircraft:
- Will use onsite electrical rapid charging stations
VTOL Charging Platforms
At the forefront of new innovative transportation technology is the Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) aircraft. VTOL aircrafts are characterized by their vertical flexibility – they are small electric aircrafts capable of hovering, taking off, and landing in a vertical fashion. VTOL is expected to revolutionize the way that people travel on a daily basis. Uber, leading global ride-sharing service, is leveraging VTOL technology to develop Uber Air, an aviation ridesharing product. Beginning from 2023, people will be able to purchase a flight on-demand to quickly and efficiently arrive at their destinations.
Eneridge is partnered with Chargepoint, the world’s leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, to deliver a fast and high-powered charging product for VTOL aircrafts, as well as other electric aircrafts and semi-trucks. As charging partner for Uber’s Elevate Initiative, Chargepoint is positioned at the helm of fast charging provisions for upcoming new advancements in air transportation technology. The company’s engineering team has developed a super quick, safe, and reliable EV charging model that can be shared by electric semi-trucks and aircrafts. Eneridge is uniquely positioned as an expert on VTOL charging platforms, and it aims to be a leading global provider of the technology that will revolutionize the world.
