PLANA joins U.S. AAM Research Program to boost technology development

PLANA, a hybrid Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft developer, announced it is waiting for final approvals to lease space in the National Advanced Air Mobility Center of Excellence (NAAMCE) in Springfield, Ohio, as part of its efforts to accelerate its technology research and development, as well as its plans for global expansion.

According to a press release “The NAAMCE, adjacent to the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport terminal, is a 30,000-square-foot office building that will house administrative, laboratory, meeting, and collaboration space, with 25,000 square feet of aircraft hangar space, for the Air Force and private industry. The center supports the expanding work of manufacturers and operators of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOL) and other vehicles used for Advanced Air Mobility.

“The NAAMCE will provide participants with a collaborative environment in which companies can find support for aerospace research, design, validation, test and flight, training, and business advice related to aircraft development. The NAAMCE also supports various demonstration projects showcasing technologies that will advance AAM integration, beyond the aircraft itself.

“PLANA would join other eVTOL Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) who have had a presence at the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport like Joby Aviation and BETA Technologies who both have simulators on the airport grounds.  By joining the NAAMCE, PLANA aims to accelerate research on the hybrid-electric AAM aircraft that it is currently developing, establish new technologies, and collaborate with U.S. companies and organisations.”

“Participating in NAAMCE is of great significance in building a collaborative ecosystem with various AAM projects currently being developed in the U.S.,” Minyoung Ahn, co-founder and chief strategy officer of PLANA, said. “It is a great opportunity to showcase South Korea’s AAM technology to the world and jointly develop new technologies for the future.”
