We have been working at the forefront of Advanced Air Mobility technology since 2018 which
culminated in the publication of the Distributed Aviation paper by ADS UK.
We are recognized as a leading company in the space working on both aviation infrastructure to support zero
emissions aircraft and demand modelling for Advanced Air Mobility.
Vertical Aerospace Demand Modelling
Demand modelling of potential routes for eVTOL operations including identification of landing sites, infrastructure requirements and potential revenue analysis. Identification of a need for 270+ aircraft across 10 routes modelling an average requirement of 2k hours per year and significant carbon emissions savings. Identification of peak power requirements at vertiport sites and capacity requirements for master planning activities.
Undisclosed OEM Market Assessment
An overall assessment of the UK market. Analysis on the propensity to travel, gross flows of travellers, travel volumes, purpose of travel
and mode of transport based on mobility data.
Working with GKN Aerospace, the Connected Places Catapult and Pascall + Watson to develop several aspects of this UKRI funded project. Development of Concept of Operations, Demand Modelling, Infrastructure Requirements and scheduling for business planning.
Key input into site identification of 10 potential London vertiports plus the identification of 45 potential feeder vertiport sites surrounding London.
UKRI Demand Modelling
Darrell Swanson and Jarek Zych have been appointed by the UKRI to complete a market assessment/demand modelling study on selected 20 routes in the UK.
The purpose of the study was to illustrate the potential for electric aviation in the UK using a mix of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) and electric conventional take-off and landing (eCTOL) aircraft.
EA Maven has developed a methodology to predict the potential demand between destination pairs, using a modified traditional airline prediction model. This is based on a blend of traditional data sources and new mobility data.
NASA White Paper
Darrell Swanson is co leading the NASA TVF Working group 2 developing a white paper to prepare industry on what needs to take place to enable the development of an Urban Air Mobility System (UAM).
Darrell Swanson is a co-author of the NASA Working Group 3 white paper where key inputs include the outline of infrastructure requirements for electric aircraft including both eVTOLs and fixed wing electric aircraft.
