The Asia-Pacific is home to a number of megacities such as Beijing, Jakarta, Manila and Tokyo, where Urban Air Mobility (UAM) could be an attractive alternative mode of transport. Even a more compact city like Singapore could benefit from UAM-enabled connectivity to nearby locations in adjacent countries.
The UAM concept envisages a safe and efficient air transportation system for passengers or cargo, flying over populated areas on intracity or intercity routes. Successful implementation of UAM depends on having an ecosystem in place to support operations on the ground and in the air. This includes vertiport and charging infrastructure, standards and regulations, urban air traffic management systems, service providers and operators, etc.
AAIS, Volocopter and ITE are pleased to organise an inaugural Roundtable to discuss the UAM ecosystem in support of regional business opportunities. This is being held in conjunction with the Volocopter-ITE UAM Showcase Event on 12-13 July 2022. Roundtable participants will also have an opportunity to visit the showcase.
