To further advance it’s electric aircraft charging solutions towards commercialization, Electro.aero has formed partnerships with SkyPortz, Altaport, Aerovy Mobility, and Greenstar Aviation. All of these partnerships seek to enhance Electro.aero’s offerings for turnkey electric aircraft charging solutions.

In order to perfect its electric aircraft charging solutions, Electro.aero has partnered with several different companies who will assist with software, leasing, and infrastructure development. With these partnerships, Electro.aero seeks to be able to “install world leading, high tech aircraft charging solutions with fully integrated smart software for electricity and traffic management, all at minimal upfront cost”, according to CEO and CoFounder Richard Charlton.
The four new partnerships announced by Electro.Aero are:
Skyportz – A highly-noted developer of vertiport infrastructure focused on securing access to optimal sites for vertiports. With a growling portfolio of dedicated sites across Australia, Skyportz is assisting property developers and owners in preparing for future eVTOL air taxi and cargo services.
Aerovy Mobility – A developer of electric charging software for advanced air mobility. When integrated with Electro.Aero chargers and battery energy storage systems, Aerovy software will enable dynamic pricing of aircraft charging services based on machine learning of supply and demand patterns. This will ensure that providers of charging services can guarantee that every aircraft can be charged as needed for high volumes of fllights with quick turn-around times, while minimizing electricity costs from the grid.
Altaport – An established provider of automation software for airports, heliports, vertiports, and droneports. When integrated with Electro.Aero charging infrastructure, Altaport software will manage charging slots by pre-booking and queue control of incoming aircraft needing to be charged. By providing real-time information about available chargers and pricing to aircraft operators, Altaport software will maximize the utilization of charging assets and minimize aircraft turnaround time.
Greenstar Aviation Partners – Developer of structured leasing solutions for electric aircraft and charging infrastructure. With an extensive background in the sustainable aviation sector and long-standing experience in global leasing of aviation assets, Greenstar’s financial solutions enable aviation customers to acquire the infrastructure they need to enable electric aviation.
Why it’s important: These new partnerships by Electro.aero will allow the company to provide fully-integrated, turnkey electric aircraft charging solutions to aircraft operators, vertiport developers, airports, manufacturers and more. This total system will give Electro.aero advantage over other providers, as it allows the company to offer a product that many vertiport developers will be able to purchase to have every charging system need provided.
As the eVTOL air mobility industry continues to grow and demand for electric aircraft charging solutions does as well, Electro.aero’s early start on providing comprehensive solution will be give it a significant competitive edge. Additionally, systems like Electro.aero’s will make it much easier for many potential veriport site owners to consider and launch vertiports in expanded areas, eventually meaning ventiports in more locations.
