SkyScape, a Japanese vertiport development and management company headquartered in Osaka, Japan, and LYNEports, an Advance air mobility planning solution/software developer based in Europe have announced an agreement to integrate LYNEports location assessment software into SkyScape’s Vertiport development offering, enabling smoother and more efficient evaluations of potential Vertiport sites for all SkyScape clients.

LYNEports solutions allows for drastically improved location siting, helping asset owners more quickly understand potential limitations or restrictions of their site in regards to Vertiport development. Through this collaboration, SkyScape is looking to bring these improved development timelines and streamlined procedures to its clients in both the APAC and N. American markets.

“As we move closer to the launch of eVTOLs, there is still tremendous work left to be done in regards to getting our infrastructure prepared and ready to support operations” said Asa Quesenberry, President and founder at SkyScape“ We believe working with the LYNEports team is one of our best bets in helping get these sites assessed and ready for development faster and more efficiently than what we’re currently seeing. I’m excited to work alongside Rasha and her team to help get more sites activated as quickly as we can.”

“Collaborating with SkyScape signifies our shared commitment to pioneering innovation in advancing urban air mobility. Planning and assessing vertiport locations is an essential initial step for both cities and developers, paving the way for sustainable modular vertiport development. Working alongside Asa’s team to deploying these facilities in two major regions marks a significant stride towards automating and expediting industry introduction while upholding stringent safety and efficiency standards,” stated Rasha Al Shami.”

Within the agreement, the two companies will collaborate on site evaluations as well as flight path and obstacle clearance to ensure safe and efficient facility planning that prioritizes operational safety above all else. Within the LYNEports software, location and architectural systems will be utilized to help SkyScape Vertiport clients more easily visualize and design their facility.

SkyScape is pioneering a unique approach to Vertiport development focused on their aviation facility “building blocks,” as a set of ready-made units that house various elements of vertiport operations. These blocks are meant to empower site developers by allowing them to design aviation facilities and vertiports with only the elements that are applicable to their unique situation and use case. The blocks are intended to make use of upcycled containers as well as high-grade aluminum to enable quick set up and resilience through the facilities lifecycle while emphasizing a focus on sustainable materials. The hope of SkyScape’s approach is to develop aviation facilities that can support a high number of co-located services not limited to eVTOL operations but also first response, medical deliveries, security and more in the name of empowering communities through AAM.
