The Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) is gearing up to launch its new global event, Airspace World, from March 8-10 in Geneva.

Airspace World will see organisations from across the Air Traffic Management (ATM), space and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UTM) industries come together.

CANSO describes the event as ‘the place to be for organisations and people interested in the skies of tomorrow.’

Attendees confirmed include Eve Air Mobility which will join Airspace World to discuss the future of urban air mobility.

Rob Weaver will represent Eve and share how the company is ‘dedicated’ to accelerating the UAM ecosystem worldwide with its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle and agnostic portfolio of solutions in two speaking engagements.
Weaver will host the discussion “Enabling Initial Urban Air Mobility Operations” to share Eve’s latest progress on UATM that supports the introduction and scaling of UAM operations.

He will also provide insight from Eve’s recent works across the Americas, Europe and Asia with ANSPs, regulators and industry in preparation for the launch of this new mode of transportation.

Weaver will join fellow aviation experts to discuss the Complete Air Traffic System (CATS) Global Councils’ recent unveiling of their vision for future skies during the “Making the CATS Vision for Future Skies Reality” panel.

The discussion overview covers the necessary efforts to achieve the CATS’ overarching objectives and shared vision that has great potential to accelerate progress toward the skies of 2045.

Environmental sustainability

NATS will also be demonstrating solutions and technologies designed to deliver airport capacity, operational resilience, and environmental sustainability as well as showcasing the latest thinking on the integration of new airspace users.

Martin Rolfe, NATS chief executive officer, said: “This is an exciting period of renewal for our industry following the impact of the Covid pandemic and Airspace World is an invaluable chance for us to come together and discuss shared priorities. From new airspace users to delivering a truly sustainable future, there is a lot to cover. It’s also an opportunity to showcase the latest projects and innovations NATS has delivered with our customers and partners around the world.”
