Airis founder John Narraway and Design Eye-Q founder Ray Mattison collaborated on previous aviation design projects, and when reading about and discussing the emerging urban air mobility industry, they both felt the time was right to show the world what was possible when taking a customer experience led approach to aviation engineering and development. Through an iterative process, Airis focused on a design aesthetic that would build confidence and trust with the passengers for this brand new category of transport. Here comes Airis x Design Eye-Q Urban Air Mobility Concept.
The aircraft will have seating capacity for 5 adults and offers an industry first, ramp access for those with wheelchairs or requiring assistance.
With an autonomous avionics system called AirisAI the aircraft will have updateable systems to take advantage of changes to mission optimization requirements and also to specify what level of autonomy to deploy depending on the airspace regulations in the jurisdiction. The vision is to have hundreds of these types of aircraft sharing the airspace and verti-port infrastructure. This requires a high level of autonomy and situational awareness to have the ultimate in safety.
