PRICE Systems, an industry leader in cost estimation technology, has joined with Access Skyways, a group of partner companies working to support the integration of aerial mobility transportation worldwide.
PRICE Systems has previously been a critical component of progressing the aerial mobility industry, providing model-based cost engineering technology and consulting to predict total lifecycle costs (PRICE Cost Analytics) – down to electric components and transportation infrastructure. With PRICE Systems now joining Access Skyways, PRICE’s Cost Analytics technology will now be able to provide direct advice to Access Skyways.
Initially formed by Jaunt Air Mobility, Access Skyways works to help organizations through the implementation process of aerial mobility, ranging from general transit to vertiports to air operations. Access Skyways develops and provides data and analysis on infrastructure design, supply and demand cost analysis, flight operations, electrification, existing flight infrastructure, and maintenance and repair. Jaunt Air Mobility is also a designer and manufacturer of its own piloted (or autonomous) electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for urban and regional mobility. Jaunt is also a named partner with Uber Elevate, and will provide eVTOL aircraft for Uber’s planned flight operations.
According to Anthony Demarco, CEO of PRICE Systems, “The future of flight is real and we are excited to bring our aeronautics cost estimating experience to the table and join a strong group of companies whose paths have crossed before.”
Nate Sirirojvisuth, PhD, Sr. Cost Research Analyst at PRICE Systems states that, “We have great eVTOL technology, but we need to optimize it for the market, not just performance.”
Why it’s important: Access Skyways represents an important part of the aerial mobility industry, providing aid for organizations in managing the complexity of introducing a new system of transit to a preexisting transit ecosystem. PRICE Systems’ inclusion will further support the integration of future transport for aerial mobility worldwide.
