Governance & finance
Create a sustainable UTM ecosystem
Implement a long-term UTM solution with sustainable governance and finance models
Understand the value of a U-space ecosystem and understand the underlying governance and finance models. Our experts and partners can help you to set up governance and finance models for the implementation of U-space.
1. Governance models
To establish U-space airspace as a competent authority, you need to have a thorough understanding of mandatory and optional services that can be delivered within the airspace, the various architectures that can be set up and the decisions that need to be made on the possible governance and finance models. AirHub Consultancy can help to set up the basis for the governance of U-space.
2. Finance models
Developing finance models for U-space is of paramount importance, especially in the context of CAAs and ANSPs. These models provide a structured and sustainable approach to budgeting and resource allocation for the implementation and ongoing operation of U-space services. CAAs play a pivotal role in overseeing and regulating U-space activities, ensuring safety, and coordinating various stakeholders. This, in turn, ensures the reliable funding of U-space projects, promotes transparency, and helps CAAs fulfill their crucial role in ensuring the safety and efficiency of U-space operations while also supporting the development of the U-space ecosystem.
Together with our partners, we can help you to ensure a (financially) sustainable U-space implementation together with governance models.
3. Policy development
At AirHub, in collaboration with partners like PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), we guide policymakers through every stage of the process. We understand the intricate balance between fostering innovation and addressing concerns regarding privacy, noise pollution, and airspace congestion. Our comprehensive approach takes into account the unique requirements of your region and industry, tailoring policies that facilitate growth, minimize risks, and provide confidence.
Besides policy development, we offer ongoing support to policymakers, including training workshops, stakeholder engagement, and continuous monitoring and evaluation of implemented policies.
Webinar: Preparing for U-Space
Drones have the potential to greatly benefit the European and global economies. The recent implementation of Commission Regulation (EU) 2021/664 on a regulatory framework for U-space is expected to encourage the development of drone-based services that can contribute to this potential.
