DALLAS — Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Overair, a company developing advanced electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore the future of vertiport development and eVTOL aircraft operations in the DFW Metroplex.
The metropolitan statistical area in Texas known as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, officially designated as Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, includes 11 counties. The primary cities within this area are Dallas and Fort Worth.
Serving as the economic and cultural center of North Texas, the DFW Metroplex is often referred to by residents as DFW (airport code) or the Metroplex.
Details of the Partnership
As part of this partnership, a feasibility assessment will be conducted to evaluate the integration of passenger eVTOL operations across the North Texas region. eVTOL aircraft, such as Overair’s Butterfly, are being developed worldwide as the next generation of urban air mobility, offering advanced point-to-point electric air transit options.
The agreement establishes a joint working group that will consist of experts from both organizations. This group will investigate the policies and infrastructure required to implement an integrated and sustainable eVTOL program at DFW in the future.
The working group will also assess operational procedures, including approach, landing, charging, passenger handling, takeoff, departure, and safety protocols necessary for such a program.
Additionally, Overair is set to lead an assessment of the demand for all-electric advanced air mobility services within the DFW…
