Urban Air Mobility

Air taxis and aviation's next generation

This episode of Altitude we’re exploring the next generation of aviation and airspace users.

Air taxis, mass drone operations and spaceports may sound like science fiction, but it is a future that is far closer than you might think

Within a few years, a drone could be dropping your prescription at your front door as you book an electric air taxi to take you to the airport, while a few miles down the road, a communications company is launching a satellite from the local spaceport…

It is a part of the industry that has accelerated massively over the past few years and is now on the verge of becoming a scalable reality, with the potential to change how we travel, connect communities decarbonise local transport.

Join us as we dig into the most exciting innovations in urban air mobility, discuss the implications for air traffic management and unpick the technology and regulatory hurdles that still need to be overcome.
