Springfield — quickly becoming a hub for flying car and drone testing — is adding another piece to its potentially lucrative portfolio: a development site. AirPark Ohio is an industrial park adjacent to the Springfield-Beckley Airport. The state hopes eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles) and UAS (unmanned aircraft systems) companies use the site to build their vehicles. "Manufacturing of the eVTOLs would be a perfect fit for it," said Assistant City Manager and Director of Development Tom Franzen.
