On October 28th, 2021, igr AE was officially commissioned as part of a consortium by the Hamburg Investment and Development Bank (IFB Hamburg) with the project: "UAM Vertiports - Design & Development of a modular Vertiport".

The consortium consists of a total of 11 consortium partners and includes: the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and other business partners.

The aim of the project is to develop design criterias for the realization of Vertiports over the next two years and to implement them in the form of modular solutions. The respective Vertiport should be designed in such a way that use can be ensured regardless of the vehicle type.

igr AE assumes the role of an airport planner with practical experience, who is particularly concerned with the feasibility of flight operations and the future approvability of Vertiports. We look forward to the future collaboration with the consortium partners!
