Welcome to Shephard Studio’s Revolutions in Vertical Flight, brought to you in partnership with Bell.
The Revolutions in Vertical Flight podcast tells the little-known story of the history of rotorcraft, from the autogiro and helicopter, to the tiltrotor and eVTOL platforms in development today.
Revolutions in Vertical Flight reveals the stories of a small group of pioneers, the visions and beliefs that drove them, and their approach to invention and innovation.
And the Shephard Studio podcast series looks at the vertical flight innovation underway today, revealing how it will transform military operations and revolutionise urban mobility.
In this episode, we learn more about the urban air mobility revolution and hear how manufacturers pursuing new advances in a wide range of areas, from autonomy to propulsion.
These technologies are laying the groundwork for new types of rotorcraft, perhaps most notably in the urban air mobility and electric vertical takeoff and landing spaces, better known as UAM and EvTOL.
Advances in a wide range of technologies are driving this revolution and today’s aviation pioneers are developing enabling technologies to help make urban mobility a reality, including electric propulsion, autonomy and fleet management.
