The AAM Integrator Centre Project in Dubai, South has reported to begin construction works by next year. Leader in the design, construction, and operation of advanced air mobility (AAM), VPorts made an announcement confirming the project’s plans. Moreover, VPorts has initiated the certification process for the project, which will be at the Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH).

The AAM Integrator Centre Project stems from a partnership between VPorts and the UAE General Civil Aviation AUthorty (GCAA), and MBRAH. Its 25-year exclusive lease agreement with the aerospace hub will be renewable for an additional 25 years. In addition to dedicated flight-testing airspace, the facility will feature assigned blocked airspace and new technologies. 

Developed by the GCAA, the certification process aligns with CAR IX-HVD Part III. In a nutshell, it outlines the requirements and guidelines, especially for the operation of onshore vertiports in the UAE. For the AAM Integrator Centre Project, VPorts strives to obtain design approval for the facility within six months. This, the AAM Leader noted would be a key step in the construction phase for the project.
