Website spectrum.ieee.org published a story this week covering the ever-popular “Top 10” of the key players, presently involved in the emerging eVTOL industry. As expected Joby Aviation maintains its No.1 status with, a little surprisingly, Kittyhawk and Beta Technologies getting a look in. The other seven are the usual suspects.
Written by Glenn Zorpette and Evan Ackerman, this media outlet is building a reputation for well-researched and knowledgeable articles on the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) subject.
Previous UAMN Spectrum Article:
The two journos point out that some 250 companies (shouldn’t that be 350?) are working toward what they hope to be a revolution in urban transportation and write, “If the vision becomes reality, hundreds of eVTOLs will swarm over the skies of a big city during a typical rush hour, whisking small numbers of passengers at per-kilometre costs no greater than those of driving a car.”
SMG Consulting and its controversial Advanced Air Mobility Reality Index is mentioned with quotes from Founder Sergio Cecutta, a former executive at Honeywell and Danaher. Then, each of the top 10 eVTOL companies are offered a brief synopsis.
Worth a look.
