Who are the HKB aircraft testing experts? We interviewed one of them for you, about AAM and its challenges. Read the interview with Gianmarco Sironi
Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) is reshaping the future of the aviation market, by providing safe, affordable, and secure all-electric or hybrid-electric powered aviation transportation systems across various commercial, civil and defence uses. Starting with Urban Air Mobility (UAM), electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL), air taxis, or electric conventional-takeoff-and-landing aircrafts (eCTOLs), Electric Aircraft (EA) can be used for local, regional, interregional, or urban applications in order to travel, transport cargo, for training purposes or other services. Today’s concepts are becoming tomorrow’s solutions.
The basic concept is the same: electric, lightweight, long range, runway independent and highly automated. To bring electric aircraft concepts to the global markets a variety of stakeholders are partnering together to look at different technologies, which need to meet the high safety standards of the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) or the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) – new standards are already under development.
HBK has a successful record adding value to aircraft projects by not only by providing tools for measurement, testing and data evaluation, but also helping with aircraft know-how, experience, and professional project management.
"HBK helped us not only with to-the-point measurement instrumentation for our structural durability and electric propulsion testing, but also with deep application expertise and experience. They made our project their own project and have been very responsive and supportive in every respect."
