By 2030, 60% of the world's population will be urban. This significant population growth is expected to create a real need for innovative mobility options as ground infrastructure becomes increasingly congested. We believe providing people with a safe, sustainable and convenient solution that leverages the airspace above cities is a solution.
Making urban air mobility a safe reality is bigger than any one company. We actively engage with people, cities, regulators and companies to architect all pieces of the urban air mobility puzzle. Our approach includes building and bringing together all the critical components—technology, business models, city integration, infrastructure development, and airspace management—to take urban transport into the sky. In doing so, we can ensure maximum societal benefits for urban communities worldwide.
