Hyundai Motor Group UAM Division Expands With New Members

The urban air mobility (UAM) division of Hyundai Motor Group has announced the expansion of its Airspace Management Consortium. Skyroads (formerly D3 Technologies), Altitude Angel, and OneSky are set to join the industry working group. Hyundai Motor Group sourced the three newest members independently due to their unique approaches, geographic presence, and expertise.

The Consortium is to serve as a resource for the advanced air mobility (AAM) industry and policymakers in the US as well as internationally, to shape common operating and design standards that will support industry development.

New members plan to contribute strategic insight on Hyundai’s concept of operations (ConOps) for AAM airspace management and ground mobility integration. In the future, Hyundai will work with Consortium members to simulate the operation of UAS Traffic Management (UTM) and AAM network, with an ultimate flight test of its ConOps.

“Expanding digital infrastructure to accommodate new modes of aerial mobility is a challenge given all of the disparate airspace operating standards and geographies involved. It’s important we convene diverse parties, such as Skyroads, Altitude Angel and OneSky, to explore safe and efficient integration of AAM and, more broadly, equitable access to airspace,” explains Pamela Cohn, Global Chief Operating Officer and US General Manager, of the Urban Air Mobility Division of Hyundai Motor Group.
