Developed for NASA, Riverfront UAM vertiport concept looks 15 to 20 years into the future. This advanced concept is a promising solution that takes advantage of the unique features of many urban cities that are built along rivers. Unlike city streets, rivers have relatively little activity and offer unused flight corridors, making them ideal for eVTOL aircraft operations. Furthermore, the wide corridors created by these urban waterways cut through the heart of cities and provide safe approach routes for air taxis that are at a distance from the tall buildings, which can create turbulent wind patterns.
