Australia-based advanced air mobility (AAM) industry collaboration platform Greenbird has welcomed AMSL Aero as a founding ecosystem partner. AMSL Aero is the developer of the Vertiia, an eVTOL aircraft that will be powered by electric battery and hydrogen.

Vertiia will provide fast door-to-door passenger transport for distances up to 1,000km. It has the capacity to hold up to six people and will have high levels of built-in autonomy. Commercial production is anticipated to commence in the next few years.

AMSL Aero joins the platform alongside research institutions and industry experts Archerfield Airport Corporation, Griffith University, Skyports, Nautilus Aviation, Aviator Group and Aviation Projects.

Greenbird managing director Sara Hales says: “We are pleased to have an Australian aircraft manufacturer join Greenbird. AMSL Aero will contribute significantly to our understanding of the regulatory framework for aircraft certification and continuing airworthiness. Aircraft safety is critical to establishing community acceptance of AAM operations, and AMSL Aero's vision to build a safe aircraft aligns closely with our values and vision for a robust and safe AAM ecosystem in Australia.”

AMSL Aero CEO and inventor of Vertiia Andrew Moore adds: “We are excited to be collaborating with Greenbird on the future of AAM in Australia. Greenbird provides a network of experienced aviation leaders across the private and public sectors who are committed, like AMSL Aero, to enabling the sustainable aviation sector in Australia.”

Led by trusted airport and aviation industry advisor Avistra, Greenbird is dedicated to facilitating the entry and growth of the AAM industry in Australia. Bringing together international expertise, knowledge and local supply chain partners, Greenbird will assist industry and government to work together to drive investment attraction, industry operationalisation and local capability.
