A ROADMAP FOR FLIGHT AUTOMATION IN ADVANCED AIR MOBILITY

whitePaper | January 31, 2022

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.

THE FUTURE OF AVIATION IN A WORLD OF SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

Air transport plays a vital role in economies. The number of flights increased by approximately 38% between 2010 and 20191 and is still expected to resume a strong long-term growth globally despite the COVID-19 crisis2 , albeit below 2019 levels for the years to come. This can mainly be attributed to strong forecasted growth in developing countries3 , especially in middle class populations, driving the need and market for greater local and global connectivity within these regions.

Advancing Cyber Resilience in Aviation: An Industry Analysis

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Civil aviation is an incredibly safe mode of transport. Year-on-year statistics referenced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Annual Safety Report demonstrate this. Considering the forecast of double-digit growth over the next 20 years and the new infrastructure needed to manage capacity and services – and as indirectly evidenced by high levels of consumer confidence documented in widely available growth analysis – continued efforts today will clearly be paramount tomorrow to maintain the safety promise.

Connecting the Skies

whitePaper | November 8, 2019

The use cases for Inflight Connectivity are manifold. Market research suggests that 90% of passengers would like to connect, but less than 10% do so, as fees are high, and performance is poor. In the cabin, online credit card verification would eliminate fraud, and qualified medical assistance from the ground would avoid unnecessary diversions. Flight crews could optimize their flight path based on real time weather updates. Aircraft systems could report the need for maintenance and trigger ground crews accordingly, so that ground times can be minimized, and resources be used most efficiently. The ever-increasing demand for Inflight Connectivity is driven by several factors: the continued growth of airline passenger traffic, which is expected to double by 2035; 5-10 times higher passenger take rates of cabin Wi-Fi services than today; the amount of data generated by modern aircraft systems, which has already surpassed 1 Terabyte per flight just for the engines; other aerial vehicles that require connectivity for mission accomplishment, for example, police and rescue helicopters; and finally manned and unmanned drones (eVTOLs), which are expected to proliferate in the next decade.

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.
