VI&E Solutions to put vertiports across New England
The initial plan is for seven vertiports spanning Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Subsequently, another six will ensure the whole of the New England area is covered.
The first seven vertiports will be built across Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

US vertiport developer Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions is to collaborate on the development of vertiports across New England with Spectrum Associates in a two phase endeavour that will see the initial establishment of seven vertiports spanning Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Subsequently, the project will expand to encompass 13 vertiports covering the entirety of the New England area.

"Partnering with an established aerospace engineering manufacturer such as Spectrum Associates, established in 1957, will be the long pole in the tent for building infrastructure for vertiports and eVTOL charging in advanced air mobility," says VI&E Solutions CCO Bob Johnson. "We look forward to complimenting its 75 years of manufacturing in the commercial and military aircraft sector and tee up our collective experience for vertiport networks globally."

"Spectrum Associates is pleased to be teamed with VI & E to develop advanced air mobility infrastructure for this new aerospace transportation technology. The future of eVTOL is nearly limitless," adds president Richard Meisenheimer.

VI&E Solutions offers three modular vertiport designs and charging stations for electric vehicles across air, land and sea.
