After building the drone ecosystem and a policy for helicopters, a policy ecosystem for the e-VTOLS (electric vertical; take-off and landing systems) is the next frontier for the government, said Civil Aviation Secretary Rajiv Bansal while speaking at the two-day CII Advanced Short Haul Air (ASHA) Mobility 2023 conference held this week in Bengaluru. “After Production Linked Scheme for drones is being rolled out this month, we are now ready to take the next big steps in the e-VTOL system” Bansal said. He said the ministry would soon commission a study in the e-VTOL space to understand it better.
