A ROADMAP FOR FLIGHT AUTOMATION IN ADVANCED AIR MOBILITY

January 31, 2022

A ROADMAP FOR FLIGHT AUTOMATION
Skyroads AG, Munich, Germany is developing, testing and implementing an Automated Airspace Management and Vehicle Guidance System (AAVS). It is abundantly clear that a system which helps guide complex, three-dimensional traffic in congested airspace will be needed soon. Legacy ATC systems are not able to support the urban transport mode. Legislators and regulators are expecting the industry to supply solutions. Skyroads is the first company world-wide to make a comprehensive proposal. Fundamental considerations for this solution are found in our previous White Paper “Air Traffic Control for Urban Air Mobility”. The operational tasks to be solved are widely acknowledged within the current deliberations by the industry and the rulemaking bodies.

AVIATION CLIMATE FINANCE USING A GLOBAL FREQUENT FLYING LEVY

whitePaper | September 28, 2022

Aviation is often considered a “hard to abate” sector; it is growing rapidly but struggling to deploy low-carbon technologies due to their high costs. This paper presents a case under which progressive taxation, namely a frequent flying levy (FFL), can generate revenues for decarbonization while ensuring equitable distribution of the cost burden.

A Roadmap Toward a Sustainable Aviation Ecosystem

whitePaper | August 31, 2022

This report outlines a holistic view of pathways to a sustainable aviation ecosystem, focusing on low-net-carbon aircraft energy carriers (fuels), airport ecosystems (airports and bases), and developments in sustainable aircraft components (aircraft). Taking this holistic ecosystem perspective, we identify critical components that contribute to sustainable energy solutions necessary to achieve deep decarbonization of the aviation industry, as well as the integrated energy system interfaces that must be comprehensively understood, planned for, and realized. Further, we outline necessary R&D needs to achieve sustainability across the aviation ecosystem, including advancing breakthrough innovations to rapidly achieve scalable solutions, with attention to their cross-sectoral dependencies and implications.
