Volocopter posted today in social media “We are delighted to announce that we have received a grant from Osaka Prefecture to accelerate our UAM services deployment. This will bolster Osaka’s and Japan’s roadmap for introducing UAM to the region starting 2025.”
The company continues by saying “As a result, we aim to raise public awareness for our services in concert with multiple partners, and increase social acceptance by displaying our VoloCity air taxi model in Osaka by late March 2023. Furthermore, we will be visiting local schools in Osaka Prefecture with a view to teaching young children about eVTOLs and how they will shape the future of (sub)urban transportation.
“We would like to sincerely thank the partners that will help us to do this: Japan Airlines, Mitsui Bussan, Mitsui Bussan Aerospace, Tokyo Century Corporation.
“Furthermore, Volocopter is delighted to be part of both the Osaka Roundtable and the associated roadmap: https://lnkd.in/ebUTktHi.
