New EASA video sets out vertical take-off profiles for VTOL vehicles in an urban setting

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has released a video presentation on “VTOL trajectories, their influence on vertiports and the resulting impact on Urban Air Mobility” from the upcoming EASA Rotorcraft and VTOL Symposium that will take place within the frame of European Rotors on 16 & 17 November 2021. Presented by Lionel Tauszig, EASA VTOL certification manager, the video defines vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) categories, types of operations, contingency procedures, vehicle dimensions, and take-off profiles.

EASA has also released a practical illustration for Reference Volume Type 1, associated with the Vertical Take-off Profile, and how it would look in an actual urban setting.
