Pioneering The Urban Air Taxi Revolution

Pioneering The Urban Air Taxi Revolution

 

THE CASE FOR URBAN AIR TRANSPORTATION

 

The next decade is forecast to be the greatest period of urban migration in human history. By 2030, more than 60 % of the world’s population will live in cities. Ground infrastructure, which is already operating at full capacity in many areas, is struggling to keep up with this urban growth. We believe that one answer to the challenges of urbanization is to take to the sky and unleash air travel in urban environments as a viable alternative to ground transportation.

 

In this article, we will make a case for why we at Volocopter believe that we are on the cusp of a technological revolution enabling urban air mobility (UAM) at scale. We will focus on the requirements for the urban air taxi mission and discuss how we specifically designed the Volocopter, our electric vertical takeoff, and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, with this mission in mind.

 

It is important to note that, in this discussion, we will focus on the intra-city transportation use case: flying passengers within cities, where the greatest pain points will be alleviated. We will not be addressing the requirements for high-speed regional shuttles, which will ferry passengers between metropolitan regions.
