Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Attracts More Aviation Startups & OEMs

November 6th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

A series of startups and established aviation giants are joining the Dassault Systèmes’ (DS) 3DEXPERIENCE platform family to support their digital engineering initiatives. Adding to the Airbus, Boeing, Bell, Lockheed Martin, and BOOM Supersonic family, electric air mobility pioneer Eviation Aircraft is also coming on board. A few more aviation startups are also using the Dassault platform, such as Joby Aviation and Solar Impulse. Stay tuned, as we will soon reveal even more startups who will use Dassault Systèmes’


The NBAA Pushes Electric Air Mobility In The Las Vegas Limelight

October 27th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) outdid itself this year. Electric urban air mobility (UAM) was present with new players Jaunt Air Mobility, the fascinating XTI Aircraft, Uber Elevate, Bell, Boeing, and Airbus. What was so special about it this year? It wasn't the timid show of electric UAM shows of the past. Can you say, "They're here...?"


Porsche & Boeing Sign An Agreement To Work On “Premium” eVTOL Aircraft

October 18th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

Some big news this week is that Boeing and Porsche have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to look into the "premium" electric vertical takeoff & landing (eVTOL) aircraft market. Porsche says it wants to design a premium eVTOL aircraft and Boeing has aerodynamic expertise — hence the connection. The news introduces a few key turning points with both automakers and aviation. Both of these companies are established players and are feeling the media heat from aviation and road vehicle startups. I’m excited because I've been waiting for the convergence of road and air for the past three years


Uber Elevate: Will Be Same Cents Per Mile In Air As On Roads

April 10th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

Uber Elevate means business when it comes to electric vertical take-off & landing (eVTOL) urban air mobility (UAM) solutions. Recently, Uber Elevate quoted that eVTOL air miles would cost the same as what Uber charges on the road. And with Airbus UAM's outlook that the market will be around $50 billion by 2030, the company surely wants to make sure it is part of the equation


eVTOL Aircraft Are Getting Closer To Flying You Than You Can Imagine

February 9th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

I'm always surprised talking about electric vertical take-off & landing (eVTOL) aircraft technology at a party. Most people think electric urban air mobility (eUAM) won't happen for a decade. Apart from the sad fact I talk about such things at parties, their reaction is puzzling. While most people think eVTOL aircraft won't happen for a long time, that is a serious underestimation. Many aviation heavy-hitters and startups are already testing them. Heck, you can even buy one now


Electric Aviation Is The Next Big Thing

May 7th, 2018 | by Nicolas Zart

The future of electric aviation seems so far off and yet so very close that I think the only possible similarity would be to compare it to the electric vehicle (EV) rebirth of 2008. But just as back then, how many get the importance of electric aviation and its most urgent breakthroughs


For Elon Musk, Dreams > Risk. Should We All Dream & Risk More?

February 9th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

Much has been written about Elon Musk's use of the scientific method and first principles thinking. Oftentimes, Musk is pigeon-holed as a hyper-logical, robotic decision maker. Not true. It's a misperception that doesn't align with Musk's real-world experience at his companies, SpaceX and Tesla. In contrast, Elon Musk displays a boldly wild imagination and high tolerance for risk
