Advanced Air Mobility industry collaboration platform, Greenbird, is pleased to announce the addition of AMSL Aero as a founding ecosystem partner. AMSL Aero is Australia’s leading eVTOL aircraft developer, developing Vertiia - an eVTOL aircraft that will be powered by electric battery and hydrogen.

Vertiia will provide the fastest door-to-door passenger transport for distances up to 1000km. It has the capacity to hold up to six people and will have high levels of built-in autonomy. Commercial production is anticipated to commence in the next few years. Reports suggest the aircraft design is one of the world’s most efficient and affordable eVTOL designs on the market.

AMSL Aero joins the platform alongside recently announced research institutions and industry experts – Archerfield Airport Corporation, Griffith University, Skyports, Nautilus Aviation, Aviator Group and Aviation Projects.

Greenbird Managing Director, Sara Hales said, “We are pleased to have an Australian aircraft manufacturer join Greenbird. AMSL Aero will contribute significantly to our understanding of the regulatory framework for aircraft certification and continuing airworthiness. Aircraft safety is critical to establishing community acceptance of AAM operations, and AMSL Aero’s vision to build a safe aircraft aligns closely with our values and vision for a robust and safe AAM ecosystem in Australia.”

Chief Executive Officer of AMSL Aero and inventor of Vertiia, Andrew Moore said “We are excited to be collaborating with Greenbird on the future of AAM in Australia. Greenbird provides a network of experienced aviation leaders across the private and public sectors, who are committed, like AMSL Aero, to enabling the sustainable aviation sector in Australia”. 

Led by trusted airport and aviation industry advisors, AVISTRA, Greenbird is dedicated to facilitating the entry and growth of the AAM industry in Australia. Bringing together international expertise and knowledge and local supply chain partners, Greenbird will assist industry and government to work together to drive investment attraction, industry operationalisation, and local capability.
