A consortium of leading advanced air mobility partners – including Vports, Boeing, NUAIR, Honeywell and Skydrive – have submitted a response to ICAO’s Drone Enable 2023 symposium which outlines the standards and evolutionary steps the industry will need to take to evolve to autonomous flight by 2030.
“With the rapid growth of AAM, the Partners highlighted the importance of global standards to support AAM operations based on a Pilot in Command (PIC) onboard the eVTOL aircraft with a potential evolution to Remote PIC by 2030,” said a Linkedin post from VPorts’ CEO Fethi Chebil.
“The Partners are committed to advancing a safe, secure, and efficient Advanced Air Mobility operational ecosystem to enable an enduring, globally sustainable AAM industry practice. Globally harmonized and scalable standards are required to realise this vision.”
Consortium members comprise:
American University of Sharjah, Atkins, Boeing, Falcon Aviation Services, Innovitech, NUAIR, Helijet International Inc., Honeywell, Searidge Technologies, SkyDrive, University of Sharjah, The Smart-Digital-Green (SDG) Innovation Network (a group of eight universities in Quebec: Université du Québec à Montréal, Concordia University, McGill University, Polytechnique Montréal, Université Laval, École de technologie supérieure, Université de Sherbrooke, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières), Vports (Leading Partner) and Wisk.
