Electric aircraft: the future of urban mobility?

Replay of the lecture (in French language) on June 27, 2023 at the Médiathèque José Cabanis – Toulouse

By Alain Cassier, President of the Program Committee of the UAM by e-VTOL conference, fellow of the AAE

Many multi-rotor electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) projects are emerging and target the urban air taxi and urban aeromobility (UAM= Urban Air Mobility) markets. They give hope that everyone will soon be able to move around the city by flying over traffic jams without generating environmental nuisance thanks to electric motorization. Even though some of these projects are reaching the flight test stage and appear close to commissioning, there are still hurdles to overcome to make this dream a reality. It is therefore proposed to study the conditions under which an urban air transport service could be rapidly deployed.
