Achim Kostron, CCO D3 Technologies: „The future advanced air mobility system will be based on interoperability and requires to be handled with highest standards of safety. Walle Mobility shares our vision of highly safe and automated Advanced Air Mobility. We are happy to move forward together as this partnership is the first to demonstrate this kind of operations in Italy.”
Due to local specialties Italy is seen as a potential early adopter for Advanced Air Mobility with high potential for busines, leisure and sightseeing flights: “There are two large towns (Milan and Rome), more than 800 islands, a third of the surface is made up by mountains, nearby big cities are often 100-200 kms away from each other. There’s a huge potential also for leisure and sightseeing flights, for example Florence, Naples, Venice, and others. All embedded in an ecosystem of districts which are familiar with aerospace and automotive facilities and expertise”, explains Kostron.
Since being founded in 2018, D3 Technologies with CEO Corvin Huber has already entered several relevant partnerships to significantly develop the market as a UAM mastermind for ATM, including Varon Vehicles, Manta Aircraft and Flynow Aviation.
