Urban Air Mobility is expected to become a reality in Europe within 3-5 years.
New technologies such as electric propulsion and enhanced battery capacity, applied to vertical take-off and landing systems, make this possible
The first commercial operations are expected to be the delivery of goods by drones and the transport of passengers, initially with a pilot on board.
Later remote piloting or even autonomous services could follow.
Several pilot projects are under way and some European manufacturers have already applied for certification, including for piloted vehicles for passenger transport.
