The FlyOhio partnership carried out public flights of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft at Springfield-Beckley Airport as part of an air mobility showcase.

FlyOhio – led by the Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODoT) DriveOhio initiative – is seeking to aid the deployment of unmanned aircraft for personal transportation. 

At the event, Kitty Hawk flew its Heaviside 2 unmanned aircraft while Lift demonstrated its manned, wingless Hexa aircarft. 

FlyOhio demonstrated its air mobility development ecosystem to public aviation organisations, private aviation companies, corporate partners, and academic institutions.
