Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) company Supernal on Tuesday announced the opening of its primary R&D facility in Fremont, California.

The company had in 2023 announced its engineering headquarters in Irvine, Calif., and its policy and commercial hub in Washington, D.C.

Supernal selected Fremont due to its proximity to Silicon Valley’s tech ecosystem. The company’s 72,000-square-foot facility – located in the Scott Creek Business Park – serves as a home base to more than 100 employees across its battery, intelligent systems, autonomy and core operations teams. Primarily focused on AAM R&D, the Fremont-based teams are working to address the unique challenges and opportunities within battery technology for electric air travel applications.

“Batteries are the linchpin of Advanced Air Mobility and critical to powering the next generation of flight, which we see as everyday electric air travel,” said Jaiwon Shin, president of Hyundai Motor Group and CEO of Supernal. “Fremont, with its vibrant tech ecosystem, offers a robust talent pool that will enable Supernal to continue advancing the power and energy capabilities of safe aviation-grade batteries.”

The company, which was established in 2020 as the Urban Air Mobility Division of Hyundai Motor Group, is taking an “open ecosystem approach” to developing lightweight and powerful batteries that meet commercial aviation’s high safety standards.

Supernal plans to hire more than 20 employees at its Fremont facility this year. The company is seeking engineers with experience in autonomy, battery development and intelligent systems.
