We would like to invite you to the Round Table Urban Air Mobility on Monday the 25th of November, 2019 from 13:00 – 17:00. We are pleased that the NLR will host this meeting. NLR is located at Anthony Fokkerweg 2 in Amsterdam. The moderator of this session is Raymond van der Meer, Corporate Public & EU affairs at NLR and (European) ambassador of Urban Air Mobility.
There is a boom of new companies and initiatives right up to Airbus to tackle Urban Air Mobility with flying taxis, drones, eVTOLS etc. Urban Air Mobility offers many opportunities for both the manufacturing and maintenance industry and airport development. It is especially interesting because the development cycle is shorter than for the large airliners and there are many more players. This makes it interesting for SMEs. In short, an interesting discussion that involves many stakeholders around aviation and beyond.
