The aerospace company announced on Wednesday that it is working with several other partners to launch an Air Mobility Initiative (AIM), focused on exploring how eVTOL operations could be implemented in Germany, including what would be required to support unmanned traffic management (UTM) services and ground infrastructure.
“In many parts of the world, eVTOLs will offer a whole new mobility service in the near future,” said Markus May, head of operations for urban air mobility at Airbus, in a press release. “Airbus and the AMI partners are aware that the introduction of such a system requires the cooperation of many players with different competences. Our goal is to build a transport service that benefits society and this is what we are setting up here in Bavaria.”
Along with Airbus, some of the other AIM partners include the City of Ingolstadt, railway company Deutsche Bahn, air traffic control company Deutsche Flugsicherung, UTM consultant Droniq, Diehl Aerospace, and Munich Airport…”
