Volatus Embarks on Vertiport Project at Bellefonte Airport

1st of 8 Landing Pads and Charging Installations Operational by 2024

Volatus Infrastructure has reached an agreement with  Bellefonte Airport for the construction of a public use vertiport.

The public use airport is located in Centre County, Pennsylvania . Eventually, Bellefonte will see the installation of up to 8 landing pads for electric VTOL aircraft, each equipped with charging stations and the necessary infrastructure to support them. The first vertiport is expected to be operational later this year.

Volatus is picking up speed in the vertiport industry, owing to their modular design and scalable growth options. Airport management looking for quick on-site construction and scalable growth seem to find Volantus a prime partner to kickstart their AAM ambitions. In Bellefonte's case, they'll start with an initial, single-pad installation, with additional headroom for another 7 built in for rapid growth as use of the spot increases.

“A project that started out as a way to get fans to Penn State games without sitting in traffic on  US 80 and State Route 322, has turned into what will become the center of an eVTOL ecosystem for the  East Coast,” said Grant Fisk, Volatus Infrastructure Co-Founder. “We realized that Bellefonte airport is  within 90 miles of all the major cities so it just makes sense to expand this location which will lay the  foundation for the eVTOL infrastructure ecosystem for the East Coast.”

“The Bellefonte Airport was used as one of the first airmail stops at the inception of the Airmail  ecosystem,” said John Elnitski, Bellefonte Airport Manager. “It is fitting that Bellefonte Airport will  again meet this role for eVTOL use.”
