The Sky’s the Limit for Urban Air Mobility

Feb. 3, 2020

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
