Challenges and Opportunities for eVTOL Aircraft in South America
The aerospace industry is rapidly approaching a technological revolution. Currently, hundreds of eVTOL manufacturers are developing their aircraft with the intent of reducing cost and noise as compared to traditional helicopters. Some will be ready to enter service as soon as 2023, however, the regulatory framework is still uncertain, and far from being globally harmonized. Regulators and developers must work together to ensure a safe and orderly entry of this new technology into airspace. Tech companies around the globe are trying to lead the charge on the future of eVTOL vehicles, but there are multiple obstacles facing the industry altogether. On the other hand, behind each challenge, there are also opportunities that can be exploited to benefit the industry, its users and the environment. Let's listen to the perspectives and predictions of the protagonists.
