Collider members,

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking information about Electric Vertical Landing (eVTOL) Aircraft Ground Infrastructure Requirements relating to:

- Automated Air Taxis (AAT)
- Automated Air Taxi Services (AATS)
- Personal Air Vehicles (PAV)
- On Demand Aviation (ODA)
- Any other related technologies needed to implement and support this as an innovative alternative transportation method

The RFI is intended to query the industry to help plan for future support for eVTOL infrastructure in Ohio.

*Although it is not a funding opportunity, this is an opportunity for your organization to establish itself as a thought leader in the industry and influence future state policy and investment. Responding to the RFI may allow your organization to find prospective partners, build inroads with policy makers, and align your research/ development with State priorities.*
