New report explores benefits of urban air mobility for business aviation


At NBAA-BACE, the association unveiled a new report detailing the financial and economic business case for urban air mobility (UAM) and its benefits for business aviation users.

The report, titled “Business Aviation Embraces Electric Flight, How Urban Air Mobility Creates Enterprise Value,” was a joint undertaking of NBAA and NEXA Advisors, LLC. It’s a component of a larger study that analyzed 74 cities around the world, forecasting the financial and economic business case for UAM. To determine the ability of metro areas to capitalize on the potential of electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles, the study examined each city’s needs with regards to UAM, including infrastructure, congestion, current transportation networks and dozens of other factors.
