Farnborough International asks: “UAM – is it all hype or a sector worth pursuing?”

The Exhibition and Conference Centre Company, Farnborough International, says the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Market is presently at the top of its hype-cycle with scores of programs at varying degrees of emergence, maturity and in existence around the world.

The UK industry is keen to be a leading player in this exciting and potentially disruptive sector of aviation. To achieve this, it has to better understand a number of dynamics in the emerging UAM market.

Question: Is it all hype or a sector worth pursuing? If so, when will it emerge as a revenue generating market?

The upcoming thought paper (see below) is intended to stimulate thinking within the UK UAM community about the market viability, barriers, constraints and enablers in this increasing sector of aviation.

Having been compiled from background material and the expert opinions of a subset of ADS and UAM Group members, the report is deliberately speculative in its findings and conclusions. It delivers a consensus engineering-based and business driven precis of the credible UAM market and landscape reports published to date.

The findings are those of the ADS  UAM Group Market Workstream which includes individuals from ‘Achieving the Difference LLP’ (workstream lead and author), ADS Group, Aerospace Technology Institute, Atkins, Consortiq, D5 Aviation, Faradair Aerospace, Leonardo Helicopters, Rolls-Royce, Swanson Aviation, and Williams Advanced Engineering.
