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 President and CEO Ed Bolen was one of several aviation leaders who took part in the National Aeronautic Association and National Aviation Hall of Fame’s Sustainability and Innovation: Ensuring the Future of Aviation webinar on Sept. 10, 2020, to share perspectives on the industry’s environmental efforts.
The advanced air mobility sector offers the prospect of a convenient alternative to traditional transportation. However, for this emerging industry to reach its fullest potential it must gain the support of the general public.
