“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” Leonardo Da Vinci

As flying is being tested to replace driving in cities around the globe for a faster, cleaner, smarter, and more efficient and integrated transportation system, the Voloport aims to host the flying taxis services. It will provide a place for the community where they can engage, shop, dine, and connect to their flying taxis providing the essential connection between the urban mobility of today and tomorrow.

It would propose a module which can be duplicated and applied in different locations to be able to serve the landing and take-off of the flying taxis/ passenger drones (Volocopter), charging, and loading and unloading passengers.

The main objective of this proposal is to design an intermodal hub which would connect people to the flying taxis service and make it a friendly part of its neighbourhood offering convenience and recreation for travellers and visitors and ensuring usage of the site by local residence and those passing through.
