A consortium of international organisations has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish international electric ‘advanced air mobility’ (AAM) corridors between Quebec, Canada, and the US.
The consortium includes VPorts, Aéro Montréal, Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance (NUAIR), Innovitech, the Unmanned Aerial System Centre of Excellence (Alma) and Helijet International.
These companies will collaborate to ensure the international electric AAM corridors between Quebec and the US are ready for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft test flights in 2023.
“Advanced Air Mobility is moving very fast. These Quebec-US international corridors will contribute to the development, integration, and social acceptability of Advanced Air Mobility. This initiative is in keeping with our ambition and vision to build and operate 1,500 vertiports around the world by 2045.”
The international corridors are to contribute towards an AAM ecosystem for commercial cargo transport.
Throughout the project, the consortium members will explore all aspects of AAM, including goods transportation, charging readiness, security and safety, social acceptability and urban integration of infrastructure and operations.
All eVTOL manufacturers will have access to the corridors to carry out flight testing.
“This project is aligned with Aéro Montréal’s mission of enhancing the Quebec aerospace cluster and positioning it as an international leader. We are delighted that VPorts is leading the way in establishing electric Advanced Air Mobility corridors between Quebec and the United States.”
