    Vertiports are going to be a fixture going forward in the future so why not start a thread for them and related news. This one below is Voloport in Singapore. Marina Bay perfectly represents modern and dynamic Singapore. The whole Marina Bay area has undergone rapid and transformational development to become the focal point for visitors to the city, who flock from around the globe to wonder at the inspiring architectural delights that make up the jaw-dropping skyline.

    With eVTOLs development in advanced stages there is need for the supporting vertiport.skyport infrastructure to keep up if this new modern and future mode of urbanized transportation is going to take off. To this end, Joby Aviation has partnered with REEF. REEF Technology and Neighborhood Property Group is the full name of the entity and they have been enlisted to develop takeoff and landing sites for Joby Aviation's aerial ridesharing service expected to be launching in 2024. "This is a landmark deal on Joby’s path to building a transformational ridesharing service in our skies," said JoeBen Bevirt, founder and CEO at Joby Aviation. "NPG and REEF have an unbeatable network of sites across the US and we’re excited to be working with them to identify sites that will become the backbone of our future service. Parking structures are ideal locations for us as they allow us to deliver our customers as close to their destination as possible, while minimizing any local impact and reducing the need for building new infrastructure." There is no indication how their Skyport may look but below is an example of utilizing the roof of a multi-level car park for a skyport.

    Malaysia Airports announced that it has signed a tripartite memorandum of understanding with Skyports, the world-leading designer and operator of vertiport infrastructure for electric air taxis, and Volocopter, the pioneer of urban air mobility. The collaboration forms part of the five-year Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang (LTSAAS) Regeneration plan. Malaysia Airports’ Group CEO, Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, said: “Air taxi technology and revolution is the next big thing that we want to see happen in Malaysian aviation. With LTSAAS offering a synergistic ecosystem within the aviation and aerospace sectors, it is timely for us to explore this new service as it complements other key developments of the regeneration initiative. Volocopter and Skyports are both leaders in their respective fields of advanced air mobility and we hope to further futureproof LTSAAS’s position in Asia Pacific by catering to research, assembly, manufacturing, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) in addition to air taxi operations. Our objective is to provide end to end, mid to high value capabilities and solutions that are anchored by top tier operators."
