​What are Vertiports?

Jul 1st 2024

Vertiports are the key to unlocking the future of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM).

As the world embraces the era of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and AAM, these specialized infrastructure hubs will play a critical role in facilitating the seamless integration of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft into our transportation networks.

A vertiport is a defined area designed to support the landing and take-off of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Unlike traditional heliports or airports, vertiports are purpose-built to accommodate the unique capabilities of these innovative air carrier vehicles. eVTOLs, with their ability to hover and perform vertical maneuvers, require specialized infrastructure that can cater to their specific needs.

Leading aviation companies are already developing cutting-edge vertiport concepts, independent of existing airport and heliport facilities. The construction of these state-of-the-art vertiports is well underway, laying the foundation for a future where eVTOLs become a ubiquitous part of our urban and regional transportation landscape.

As the AAM revolution gathers momentum, the importance of vertiports cannot be overstated. These strategic hubs will enable the efficient and seamless integration of VTOL aircraft, revolutionizing how we move through our cities and beyond. Investing in developing a robust vertiport network is a crucial step toward realizing the full potential of Advanced Air Mobility.

A vertiport is a defined area supporting the landing and take-off of eVTOL (electric Vertical Take-off and Landing) aircraft. These battery-powered vehicles can hover and perform vertical takeoff and landing, unlike traditional fixed-wing aircraft.

Vertiport lighting systems have the same equipment utilized in heliports, such as elevated lights, identification beacons, and wind cones. 

You can get these lighting aids here at Genesis Lamp to ensure your vertiport is equipped with the necessary infrastructure to support the future of air travel.
