Webinar: Is Urban Air Mobility Ready for Prime-Time?
Prototypes are flying, operational trials are beginning, financing for certification and production is in place, and initial commercial service could be just a few years away. Has the hype cycle peaked? Is urban air mobility ready to succeed in bringing aviation to a totally new market, making air taxis an everyday mode of transport in the world’s most congested cities?
We are joined by Nick Lappos, Sikorsky Technical Fellow and Chair of the US National Academies Committee on Advanced Air Mobility, to explore the many challenges still facing the introduction and scaling up of a new mode of air travel.
