Imagine a world where transportation takes to the skies, effortlessly bypassing traffic jams and transforming the way we move. Advanced Air Mobility is unlocking a new dimension of speed, efficiency, and convenience.
Advanced Air Mobility explained
AAM represents a paradigm shift in mobility, taking transportation to the third dimension – the air. This transformation is made possible by advancements in technology, including innovations in autonomous automobiles and other types of air vehicles. By enhancing the capabilities of drones and helicopters in terms of intelligence, speed, autonomy, and efficient take-off and landing, AAM offers the potential to connect city destinations directly, rapidly, and safely.
While drones are already widely used for various purposes such as inspection and photography, their operations are typically confined to defined areas with limited or no population. AAM, on the other hand, envisions the integration of air transport into urban environments. Moreover, AAM has tremendous potential in remote and hard-to-reach areas, such as those found in Africa, where it can provide vital support and infrastructure.
The market potential for AAM is staggering, with estimates suggesting a value of 240 trillion euros globally by 2035. Forecasts for the first unmanned passenger flights vary, but according to a report by ResearchAndMarkets.com, the concept of an "air subway" could become a viable market by 2028 as an addition to traditional public transportation systems like subways and buses. In fact, a study by Roland Berger speculates that by 2050, there could be as many as 100,000 passenger drones in use worldwide.
The elements of the Advanced Air Mobility ecosystem
To transform AAM into a large-scale reality, a comprehensive and multi-layered ecosystem is essential. Some key players within this ecosystem:
- Drone manufacturers, partners, and suppliers
- Drone service providers
- Drone service users (demand side)
- Drone operators
- Air Traffic Management
- Certification and Airworthiness
- Technology Providers and Platforms
- Smart Cities
Transformation of urban transportation
Advanced Air Mobility has the potential to transform urban transportation, connecting cities in a fast, direct, and safe manner. With a thriving ecosystem of stakeholders, including drone manufacturers, technology providers, smart cities, and regulatory bodies, the vision of AAM becoming a widespread reality is within reach. As we embrace the possibilities offered by AAM, we can look forward to a future where mobility is taken to new heights.
TomorrowLab stays abreast of these developments and we explain them through Early Warning Systems. We build connections with interesting parties abroad to make the future tangible and discussable, paving the way for new collaborations and partnerships. In the next phase, we engage various stakeholders and ecosystems in our innovation missions, leading to concrete projects. Our role? Facilitating conversations and partnerships.
As we soar into the future of transportation with Advanced Air Mobility, we embrace innovation and collaboration to make this visionary concept a reality. Together, we can elevate mobility to new heights, shape the cities of tomorrow, and create a more connected and efficient world.

Change is a constant within the realm of innovation. Navigating your team, organisation and stakeholders throughout the development or implementation of new products or services, a new process approach or a new organisational structure. It often creates resistance for multiple reasons. There's no quick fix in helping people throughout this change, but with the help of these 5 pivotal questions, you can embark on crafting a comprehensive change strategy.
The rapid advancements in technology have unlocked exciting possibilities for the future of transportation. Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), which encompasses technologies like electric propulsion, battery technology, sensors, autonomous flight, and 5G communication networks, holds great promise for transforming passenger transport and parcel delivery.
