Lilium Lake Nona Vertiport Planned for 2025 Completion in Central Florida

The future of transportation is headed to Lake Nona. Meet Lilium Lake Nona Vertiport, an electric air taxi hub in Osceola County. The $25 million venture’s expected to finish construction by 2025, offering transport to more than 20 million people in a 186-mile radius. The planes can fly 186 miles on a single, one-hour charge, completing a trip from Lake Nona to Tampa in less than a half-hour.

The venture will offer easy transit within 186 miles.

Our sources note that the project is a partnership between the City of Orlando, Tavistock Development Company, and Lilium, a German-based aviation company. The airport will feature “all-electric, vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.” In addition to offering more transportation options to those in the area, the project will create 100 jobs.

The venture will cost more than $20 million to complete.

Developers chose Lake Nona for Lilium Lake Nona Vertiport because of its centralized location. The venture’s presently in its planning stage, with some permits still in the works. Conceptual renderings show a low-rise building with a manicured airfield and on-site parking.

Lilium Lake Nona Vertiport will require more than 50,000 square feet of new construction. At the time of publication, our sources did not list an exact address. Yet, as the name suggests, it’ll be located in Lake Nona.
