URBAN AIR MOBILITY - ECONOMICS AND
The report has been researched and written to accelerate investment into UAM markets. City by city. For infrastructure funds, vehicle manufacturers, CNS/ATM developers and most importantly, future eVTOL operators serving the flying public.
WE CAN SEE OUR
URBAN FUTURE, AND IT IS URBAN AIR MOBILITY.
This study is a groundbreaking investigation into how the future meets the present. How does our society transform from the now—the astonishing electric vehicle prototypes, the conferences and summits, the thousand-and-one speculations—into that future of highways in the sky, the future we clearly know is on the way? It is a crucial question, not just for societal benefits—reduced congestion, greater mobility for those who crave it, scientific and technical jobs, and tax revenues—but also because billions of investment dollars are riding on it.
Who will first fly eVTOL aircraft? We take a hard look at the transitioning of current helicopter routes to eVTOL aircraft, emergency/medical rescue, business aviation, airport to airport shuttles, and knowledge essential to any UAM business development strategy.
New Infrastructure Will Be Key to UAM viability: vertiports, UATM infrastructure service, passenger facilities, lighting and weather systems, airspace planning, and certification. How much will this cost? How many vertiports will each city require in the next five to twenty years and how will they be phased in? How much existing infrastructure—such as helipads and heliports—already exists in each city? Where will new vertiports be built? Who will pay for infrastructure, and how will investors recoup their investment?
Recognizing Infrastructure Needs
Before investing in any aspect of UAM, the prudent investor must understand obstacles in the path of a large-scale city-wide operation. Technological developments, such as vehicle design, longer-lasting batteries, and hydrogen cells, are just one concern. How will the burgeoning UAM industry deal with regulatory barriers, safety, noise, privacy, and public perception?
Understanding Obstacles and
How to Overcome Them
Before cities agree to provide the space for vertiports and regulatory framework for eVTOL flights, they must understand the social and economic advantages such as reduced congestion, jobs, new industries, and tax revenues.
