Urban Air Mobility (UAM) will do more than provide a new form of mobility. Communities hosting vertiports will benefit directly from the creation of thousands of high-paying and skilled jobs, as well as jobs created by the induced economic growth (e.g., new commerce around vertiports). A recently released report by the California State University, Long Beach, stated that Urban Air Mobility (UAM) “can increase urban transportation choices while contributing to sustainability and economic development.“ Both users and non-users would enjoy these economic benefits. The report looked at the economic impact of an Urban Air Mobility network covering the city of Long Beach, California, and the greater Los Angeles-Orange County region.
Advanced Air Mobility Presents Opportunity to Bring Economic, Social, and Environmental Benefits to South East Queensland
Wisk Aero, a leading Advanced Air Mobility company, and the South East Queensland Council of Mayors (COMSEQ), Australia’s largest regional local government organization, have published a Paper outlining the benefits Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) will bring South East Queensland (SEQ). The Paper also outlines how AAM will become an integrated part of SEQ’s transportation network as the region looks to address issues of high growth including congestion, environmental sustainability and growing demand for affordable and accessible flight.
Together with Boeing, we’re releasing a roadmap for transitioning to a future where automated and uncrewed aircraft can safely carry passengers and cargo in urban and suburban areas. Our concept of operations lays out the technology, regulatory and social recommendations needed to deploy Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in the United States and integrate it into the national airspace system.
Our SCOPE platform leverages data, machine learning, and large-scale GPU-based parallelization, to translate qualitative inputs into quantitative insights. Check out our latest whitepaper for more on how our SCOPE platform allows us to be more thoughtful and comprehensive in our approach to AAM integration.
Wisk Aero and Skyports are partnering to integrate autonomous, electric, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft operations at vertiports and other ground-based infrastructure. The partnership marks the first collaboration between a vertiport developer-operator and an autonomous eVTOL developer in the U.S. The partnership has released a first-of-its-kind ConOps, which identifies how autonomous eVTOL aircraft and operators will integrate with vertiports, including interactions with Providers of Services for UAM.
Wisk, a leader in autonomous UAM flight and the company behind the first all-electric, self-flying air taxi in the U.S., has released a new white paper focused on advanced air mobility (AAM) infrastructure and the critical role that small to mid-size airports will play in the launch and long-term success of the AAM industry.
There is no silver bullet for achieving social acceptance, particularly for something as complex as riding in an advanced autonomous aircraft. So without an engagement rule book to follow to build legitimacy, credibility and trust with stakeholders, we’ve had to develop and tailor a specific approach for AAM while also staying true to our company values and philosophy.
MARCH 31, 2021 – MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Wisk, the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) company behind the first all-electric, self-flying air taxi in the U.S., today released key findings from a recent study conducted among consumers to determine sentiment around autonomous,...
