One of the most exciting industry developments in the past few years has been the emergence of urban air mobility (UAM), which aims to redefine how people and cargo are transported. NBAA recently partnered with Michael Dyment at NEXA Advisors for a report looking at how UAM can create value for companies utilizing business aviation. For companies that need greater levels of mobility, there are gaps in what business aviation can do today, due primarily to the need for operating into and out of airports, said Dyment, “These new technologies and platforms enable somebody to walk into the parking lot of the corporate head office and get a flight to an airport or perhaps to another meeting location.”
In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Michael Dyment, founder and managing partner, NEXA Advisors
Cyrus Sigari, executive chairman of JetAVIVA and co-founder of UP Partners
NBAA applauds Rep. Garret Graves (R-6-LA) for encouraging the Office of Management and Budget to ensure timely review of an upcoming SFAR, which would enable electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft entry into commercial passenger and cargo service as early as 2024.
Since 1998, NBAA’s regional representatives have provided a vital link between the association and local and regional business aviation stakeholders on matters affecting the industry. Recently, NBAA rebranded their role as regional directors to better reflect how their jobs have evolved.
Changing weather patterns are affecting aviation, and among the greatest resulting risks to air safety is clear air turbulence (CAT). A study by scientist Dr. Paul Williams has led him to predict that severe CAT will increase in the future.
