What are the promises and challenges ahead of UAM?
Stakeholder forum

This online event is part of our 2021 round of Stakeholder Forum discussions where we tackle some of the hottest topics in European aviation with a wide range of key players, within and outside our industry.

With this webinar, we will be:

  • exploring the role Urban Air Mobility (UAM) can play in future mobility improvements to enhance lives of people living in urban environments;
  • identify challenges of integrating UAM vehicles in current airspace (controlled and un-controlled) and
  • discuss the role of major UAM stakeholders.

A first-class panel from the UAM value chain will address all these questions and a lot more during the 90-minute webinar and share their valuable insight into the topic.

"Urban air mobility (UAM) takes inter-city and intra-city transportation into the third dimension.
But how will it impact existing aviation? Is it sustainable? And what is holding back UAM in Europe?"

Background

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) refers to the provision of mobility services enabling on-demand, highly automated, passenger or cargo-carrying, or emergency, transport services in an urban/suburban/inter-urban environment using air vehicles. These vehicles encompass everything from manned helicopters, as currently flown, through small inspection and delivery drones to ‘flying taxis’ using eVTOL (electrical Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft), with or without a pilot.

The UAM industry has significant potential for growth, and it has been estimated that by 2035, around 23,000 UAM/eVTOL vehicles will be serving a global market worth US$74 billion. An American forecast expects that 4,000 eVTOL aircraft will operate 55,000 urban airtaxi flights each day across the United States by 2035. (ref:  CORUS-XUAM)
