  1. Urban-Air Port Opens First Hub For eVTOL/Flying Taxis
    The world of eVTOLs/Air Taxi's etc cannot thrive if the ground supporting infrastructure is not in place. Despite the fast introduction, R&D, Certification testing that is being done on these types of craft around the world, if they make it to service and there is no proper ground-based infrastructure in place to support them it will stifle the growth of the industry. Urban-Air Port has opened a hub for flying taxis/eVTOLs and autonomous delivery drones in Coventry, UK. Actual eVTOLs are expected to utilize this facility from 2025 but the first cargo drone flight was penned for yesterday, 25th of April. Air One, which was constructed from steel and aluminium wrapped in a tensile translucent fabric.
  2. Ricky Sandhu, Founder and Executive Chairman of Urban-Air Port said, "The opening of Air-One is a momentous moment – the starting gun for a new age of transport, an age of zero-emission, congestion-free travel between and within cities that will make people healthier, happier and more connected than ever before. Cars have roads. Trains have rails. Planes have airports. Now, eVTOLs have an Urban-Air Port. From design, through to fabrication and now into operation, Urban-Air Port has delivered Air-One in just 15 months, setting the standard for deployment globally and opening up a world of possibilities for rapid response air mobility. Air-One is just the first model in our infrastructure fleet and our order-book is not only open but already growing. The interest is turning into recognition of the need for our technology and into demand."
