Hamburg Aviation is working for the aviation industry in the metropolitan region of Hamburg: More than 300 companies with a total of over 40,000 highly qualified employees. Together they cover the complete value chain of aviation.
As one of the first cities, Hamburg was welcomed in June 2018 to the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Initiative of the European Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC), which is supported by the European Commission. This makes the region an official demonstrator region for the implementation of civilian usage of drone and other urban air mobility technologies, addressing existing and new mobility needs in view of improving the life of its citizens.
In close cooperation with industry, universities, authorities and the public, feasibility studies for the systematic deployment of air mobility solutions in Hamburg's urban areas will be developed. Targeted solutions will explore, for example, the time-sensitive transport of medical goods or the inspection and maintenance of large infrastructure facilities such as port bridges and wind turbines.
