Snowdonia Aerospace Centre selects AeroVolt charging systems

UK large scale drone - and soon to be eVTOL - testing facility, Snowdonia Aerospace Centre, has selected AeroVolt (partnered with Eaton) to provide multiple charging systems for aircraft development and future flight technologies.

At the beginning of March, AeroVolt will install their certified smart charging system which uses the AS6968 protocol currently used by a number of certified and in-development aircraft worldwide. Allowing new electric aircraft systems, manned and unmanned, to use point to point flying and re-charging across the UK, widely expanding the mission scope and operational ability of electric aircraft systems.

AeroVolt are currently engaged with nearly 70 UK regional and medium sized airports on smart charging installs for new electric aircraft, with a number already completed.

The installation is to also feature the UK's first thermal runway detection system for airside charging facilities using a bespoke wireless thermal monitoring and alarm system.

Snowdonia Aerospace Centre are also planning the UK’s first eVTOL vertiport facility following newly introduced CAA guidelines last month. Further developing the framework for the upcoming Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market.



SLiNK-TECH Portal Vertiport

The vertiport portal will support automated take-off, landing and terminal area manoeuvering of drones and eVTOL aircraft. SLiNK-TECH are also in discussion with policy experts from the CAA to use the vertiport to capture eVTOL noise and rotor downwash data as part of certification testing for this new class of air vehicle.

The combination of the AEROVOLT electric charging system and the SLiNK-TECH Portal, along with Snowdonia Aerospace Centre's existing Permanent Airspace Danger Area and in-house Air Navigation Service Provision (ANSP), is set to position the Centre as the premier flight test centre for eVTOL in the UK.
