Winds of Change – A Proposal to Reconstruct Wind Flows for Urban Air Mobility

Predicting wind flows for UAM is a challenge to the safe integration of uncrewed aircraft systems into the national airspace. One researcher proposes a solution using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD), Reynolds-average Navier Stokes (RANS) model with current real-world observation.

Does the Public Really Want Air Taxis?

People have wildly different views on the future of urban air mobility (UAM). Policymakers and transport operators need to pay attention.

UAM: If We Build It, Will You Come? Will You Pay?

The technology behind air taxis may be ahead of people’s willingness to use them.

AI Has Come for Your Aircraft

You may have noticed that our lives — our digital lives and, by extension, practically every aspect of our offline lives — are about to undergo a radical transformation not seen since the advent of the internet.  That transformation is being powered by artificial intelligence (AI). AI is computers supercomputing and processing data faster and…

An Advanced Simulation for Implementation of Advanced Air Mobility

Working together to hasten the safe introduction and integration of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) into the national airspaces of countries around the globe, a group of researchers from Cranfield University, Boeing Research and Technology—Europe, ANRA Technologies, Airbus-Unmanned Traffic Management, Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre, Ineco, and NTT Data, published an article, “The Development of an Advanced…

Vertiport, Vertiport, Wherefore Shall I Integrate You?

Much of the discussion surrounding the integration of urban/advanced air mobility (UAM/AAM) has focused on how best to accommodate this new transportation mode into the National Air Space (NAS) of any given nation-state (such as the United States) or a supranational union of states (such as the European Union). But, to date, little consideration has…

Could You Recharge Your eVTOL Batteries in 6 Minutes?

UK-based Nyobolt claims it has developed the technology to charge an EV capable of traveling 155 miles after just six minutes of charging. Compare that to some slow-charging technologies that can take a car up to 14 hours to charge. Led by St. John’s College Engineering, PhD, Dr. Sai Shivareddy and Cambridge University Professor Clare…

eVTOL Batteries: Advanced Machine Learning for AAM

If you use your mobile phone frequently, when the remaining battery life reaches 20%, the battery indicator icon in the upper right of the screen turns red. But if you’re operating your eVTOL the way many passenger-carrying operators expect to – lots of takeoffs and landings throughout the day, ferrying passengers from airports to downtown…

How Troublesome Will eVTOL Passengers Be by 2030?

Rudeness in the sky is becoming commonplace. This doesn’t bode well for the eVTOL/UAM industry, which hopes to be in full swing by 2030.
