Digitalization and Requirements for Sustainability as Future Drivers


The event opened some of the scenarios and opportunities which are likely to shape the future of aviation. The emergence of new technologies and innovations such as unmanned aircraft, drones, air taxis and new types of ultralight aircraft will open new possibilities which may also be more sustainable for the environment.


This transformation includes scenarios where urban air mobility becomes the norm, drones revolutionize logistics and agriculture, sustainability goals drive electric propulsion systems, digitalization enhances safety and efficiency, and regulations and infrastructure adapt to support these changes.
