UrbanV is a company focused on developing and operating infrastructure for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM).
Established by Aeroporti di Roma, Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur, SAVE Group and Aeroporto di Bologna, UrbanV aims to create a global network of vertiports, which are specialized airports for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles.
UrbanV’s mission is to provide a fast, efficient, and sustainable alternative to traditional urban transport by leveraging eVTOL technology. The company is developing vertiport networks starting in key locations such as Rome, Bologna, Venice, and Nice, with plans to expand globally. Their goal is to enable routes that connect major hubs within cities, thereby reducing travel times and emissions.
UrbanV is also involved in several strategic partnerships to advance their AAM infrastructure. These include collaborations with Lilium, a developer of eVTOL jets, and Mott MacDonald, an experienced aviation consultancy, to establish and manage vertiports in Italy, the French Riviera, and beyond.
The company is planning to launch early AAM operations in Rome.
The Team at Auryn Aero is thrilled to share the groundbreaking work we have undertaken in collaboration with UrbanV to propel the urban and advanced air mobility sectors in Italy and abroad.
Our joint effort has focused on a comprehensive scouting and study of startups and companies operating in both manned and unmanned sectors, including cargo. This initiative aims to explore the main technologies, business models, and potential synergies to drive innovation and strategic growth in this emerging industry.

Our first objective has been the transfer of technical knowledge relating to advanced aeronautical technologies and the complexities of aeronautical certification processes to the management of UrbanV. Building this foundational understanding together, equipped both parts with the necessary insights to make informed strategic and business decisions.

This collaborative learning process ensures that UrbanV is well-prepared to navigate the technical and regulatory landscapes of AAM Sector.
In parallel, we have created an updated and updatable database of the largest players in the urban and advanced air mobility sectors. This database is meticulously focused on technological and business model aspects, capturing fundamental key performance indicators (KPIs) essential for evaluating the Entry into Service (EIS) for each company. This living database serves as a critical resource for analyzing market trends, technological advancements, and strategic opportunities, which UrbanV can use to advance their forefront position in the industry developments.

One of the most ambitious aspects of our work has been the creation of an information database from scratch, aimed at helping to understand the fundamental needs and future standards for the design and construction of vertiports.

Through workshops and training sessions, we have exchanged advanced aeronautical knowledge with UrbanV’s management. These interactive sessions have addressed specific queries and challenges, providing a deep dive into case studies and best practices.
This knowledge exchange has been instrumental to make strategic decisions rooted in technical excellence in an entirely new industry segment. The database of industry players we have developed is a dynamic tool, constantly updated to reflect the latest market developments. It includes detailed profiles of startups and companies, capturing their technologies, business models, and market potential. This resource supports UrbanV in identifying strategic partners, potential acquisitions, and market entry strategies, thereby driving informed decisions.

UrbanV is at the forefront of innovation and setting the stage for future growth in AAM.
The transferring of technical knowledge, creating a comprehensive industry database, and establishing foundational knowledge for future vertiports design, has been functional for enhancing mutual industry knowledge and expertise growth.

At Auryn Aero, we are proud to be at the forefront of this transformative journey, empowering our partners with the insights and tools they need to lead in this exciting new industry.
