Aviation Innovation: eVTOLs

January 19, 2023

As a tech-oriented airport in the heart of Silicon Valley, SJC aims to be on the forefront of innovation in aviation – and exciting developments lie on the horizon.

Our Assistant Director, Judy Ross, A.A.E. is a co-chair for the AAAE Airport Consortium on Customer Trust (ACT) Advanced Air Mobility Working Group. She played an integral role in developing this White Paper on eVTOLs – electrical Vertical Take Off and Landing vehicles.

Not quite planes and not quite helicopters, eVTOLs have the potential to revolutionize the aviation industry. They’re electric, and serve as a quieter, more cost-efficient solution to helicopters.

Learn all about these new aircraft and their potential future use at SJC.
