Snowdonia Aerospace Centre selects AeroVolt charging systems

UKs large scale drone, and soon to be eVTOL, testing facility, Snowdonia Aerospace Centre, has selected AeroVolt to provide multiple charging systems for aircraft development and future flight technologies.

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.
