CTOL: Conventional Takeoff and Landing
Thin Haul: 9-10 pax aircraft
VTOL: vertical takeoff and landing
vertiport: VTOL hubs with multiple takeoff and landing pads, as well as charging infrastructure
vertistop: a single VTOL pad with minimal infrastructure
- specific energy: the amount of energy per unit weight provided by the battery, which ultimately determines the gross weight of the vehicle
- charge rate: how quickly the battery can be brought back to a nearly full charge, which determines operational idle time
- cycle life: the number of charge/discharge cycles the cell can sustain before its capacity is less than 80% of the original, which determines how often the battery must be replaced
- cost per kilowatt-hour: which determines the overall battery cost
