Driving the safe integration of urban air mobility aircraft
Destined to revolutionise transportation and the aviation industry, urban air mobility (UAM) is emerging as a futuristic yet sustainable solution for reducing traffic congestion on city streets. Aircraft transporting passengers and cargo at lower altitudes means fewer vehicles on the ground. But it also means more crafts in the air. In this context, the EU-funded TINDAiR project will demonstrate the safe integration of UAM as an additional airspace user. The results of the demonstration will help to refine the safety, performance, standardisation and regulatory requirements needed to enable UAM. Four mission/flights will take place with different operating methods, and they will include vehicles with full autonomous capabilities for automated safe procedures as well as helicopters.
