Eve UAM and Skyports will partner to support the development of a new Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), including Urban Air Mobility (UAM), for the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB).
The contract, signed on Thursday during the ongoing Singapore Airshow, also involves partners including Kanematsu Corporation, a Japanese trading company with businesses in the aerospace industry, and Japan Airlines (JAL).
