The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has published an executive summary about the regulatory challenges facing urban air mobility. The findings of CAP2272 are based on results from the regulatory sandbox set up by the CAA to help industry innovators to increase their chances of complying with future regulations. By working with innovators via the Regulatory Sandbox, the CAA aims to tackle challenges at an early stage, helping to accelerate the pathway to approving novel technologies and concepts.
Eve Air Mobility is leading a team of urban air mobility companies to prepare the UK for eVTOL flights with a focus on the greater London market. The consortium, working together with the CAA Innovation Hub, are developing a concept of operations for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) operations, focusing on the transportation of passengers over London in novel vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicles. The Eve case study informs the key considerations for integrating UAM operations into UK airspace published by the CAA.
The CAA Innovation Hub welcomes feedback on these key considerations to help us to identify other areas to explore and continue our iterative learning process.
