Air taxi business plan
Airline company executive summary
Bell has partnered with Uber to develop an air taxi. On the basis of demand, operations can be scheduled. Demand for air taxi services is dynamic and stochastic. Furthermore, the permits and actual construction time for the required infrastructure are considerable. Each Uber vertiport would require up to six megawatts of power. The model expresses costs based on aircraft characteristics like cruise speed, weight and crew size. Operators can include these considerations into their schedules by including them in an end-of-day procedure. An operator is not always able to service at the requested time. The demand during the evening hours is low see Figure 7 and demand for the next day is largely known. Figure 14 - example of a hour flight route If the arrival airport of a dispatch does not match the departure airport of the subsequent dispatch in the same route, then the aircraft needs to be relocated. The second step is to select the best available dispatch and include it into the flight schedule.
For those disruptions that could not be prevented, there is a need for recovery methods. That would require one out of every 15 commercial helicopter pilots flying today to fly eVTOLs for Uber. Each maintenance shift can be scheduled into the route of an aircraft as a dispatch with a fixed origin and destination.
A crew can be replaced only if the destination of one of its dispatches is the home base of that crew. A customer can request a specific departure time.
A schematical display of a dispatch is given in Figure A dispatch is defined as a time scheduled trip that is part of a single aircrafts flight route. A dispatch can be scheduled to service a particular customer request, but it can also be scheduled for any other reason that requires an aircraft to be relocated.
