The project consists of the construction of a much needed cargo facility that will facilitate the transfer of perishable Pacific Northwest seafood and support eVTOL aircraft and all other energy efficient cargo operations. This will be accomplished by providing a fully operational and integrated system that interlinks air mobility with ground transportation in a multimodal regional hub. A beta eVTOL and vehicle charging station is scheduled for installation in the 1st quarter of 2023 at the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport to accommodate the BETA aircraft logistical charging network.
