The Latest Advanced Air Mobility News

Sub-gram Helicopters

Scientists are developing helicopters smaller than some gnats to aid in future rescue missions and more.

Urban Air Mobility + Artificial Intelligence

Take a minute to watch the opening scene from the 1952 Superman TV series. Writing in Cyient, Ajay Lohany, formerly with the Indian Air Force, outlines how those superhuman abilities Superman possessed (“faster than a speeding bullet,” “more powerful than a locomotive”) can align to improve aviation as urban air mobility (UAM) and artificial intelligence (AI) join…

Rich Man, Poor Man

Let’s begin with the obvious: The extremely wealthy travel by private jet or limousine. Those traveling on commercial flights are literally divided into classes: first, business, and coach. Where the topography permits, e.g., in the continental U.S. and the European Union, the working class frequently travel by car or bus. There’s been much discussion about…

Novel Uses of Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles

Urban air mobility (UAM) is coming. Advanced air mobility (AAM) is coming. Uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs) are here now. The following UAV manufacturers and component providers are preparing to use UAVs in novel ways to shape the skies today and create a sustainable, cost-effective, uncrewed tomorrow. Precision Crop Spraying Regina, Saskatechwan, Canada-based  Precision AI has developed an artificial…

Is Sand the New Lithium?

The answer to powering Advanced Air Mobility may be shifting in a desert nearby. If you’ve ever walked barefoot on the beach on a hot day, you know you literally feel the heat. Heat is stored energy, stored energy that could be used to power homes, offices, cars (maybe even flying ones?!). Perhaps best of…

Before They Buy eVTOLs, People Need to “Buy Into” eVTOLs

Public awareness of advanced air mobility (AAM) is not keeping pace with the achievements of eVTOL manufacturers.

Advanced Air Mobility by the Numbers

Advanced air mobility is predicted to bring eVTOLs to the skies, jobs to the world, and significant economic development to global economies.

Advanced Air Mobility — By the Numbers in 2023

The latest statistics for the rapidly growing uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) market.

Recharging Your eVTOLs – Midair

Swapping batteries midair, or more precisely, as NASA engineers describe their plan, “Energy Augmentation Concepts for Advanced Air Mobility Vehicles,” (EACAAMV) is a scheme devised by eight NASA scientists to recharge (if that’s the right word) eVTOLs in midair. Kapil Sheth, Nhan Nguyen, Seth Schisler, Todd Stinchfield, Corey Ippolito (NASA Ames Research Center), David Pike…

Do You Know Your eVTOL’s PEX Factor?

Learn how eVTOL companies can best evaluate their aircraft’s design for optimal performance through using a PEX.
