Singapore is a highly urbanised country with a population density of more than 8000 people per sq km. It is also a major air hub with a small and congested airspace. This presents unique conditions for the implementation of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) systems.
Globally, a large number of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOL) are being developed and AAM systems are expected to provide safe and scalable commercialisation of flight services. Applications span across cargo delivery, law enforcement and medical rescue solutions, as well as augmenting private and public transport systems.
Join us for this series of 3 webinars to learn about AAM for Singapore. This includes urban planning and infrastructure considerations, and airspace design & management for AAM. Gain an overview of key AAM topics and how they might apply in the Singapore context.
