The presentation will outline how the development of electric aircraft will shift a proportion of passenger traffic away from our current hub and spoke aviation system to a sub regional network of smaller airports and vertiports in our congested urban environments. A vertiport solution for London will be presented which was developed in conjunction with Pascall+Watson and AIQ Consulting and will include a review of its operational characteristics. Additionally a review of various proposed vertiport solutions will be compared against perceived requirements for North America vs Europe.
