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.
