EPATS Conference ILA, Berlin, May 28, 2008 "Personal Air Transportation in Europe and opportunities for a revival of the small aircraft manufacturers" Welcome to the EPATS Project Krzysztof PIWEK, EPATS STUDY Project Coordinator, Institute of Aviation, Poland
WHAT IS EPATS ? EUROPEAN Born and operated in Europe INTERREGIONAL Links all European Regions (NUTS 2, NUTS 3) INTERACTIVE Links all actors (Customers – Providers) in real time by network DAILY-ROUND-TRIP High-speed and point-to-point connection lead to high daily radius of action AFFORDABLE Accessibility to small airports and low generalized cost trip make the system affordable SAFE New aircraft, operational and air traffic management technologies makes the system safe. PERSONALIZED Adjust aircraft fleet and operations to passengers flow and population personal needs AIR – FREE-FLIGHT Automated Air Traffic Management in Single European Sky ATM environment (SESAR project)
Main EPATS Question Is it possible to replace car trips on a distance longer than 300 km by personal aircraft ?
EPATS Answer EPATS study answers „YES” Due to: ØHigh density Airports Network ØNew ATM Technology ØTechnically Advanced Aircraft ØEuropean Synergy Possibility ØIncreasing Mobility and Social Needs

No detrimental delays; project on time Next actions? next proposal for FP 7 – according workprogramme 2008 - done
EPATS Questions 1. What is accessibility and suitability of European airports? 2. How big is a Transportation GAP for European regions with poor accessibility? 3. What could be potential transfer of traffic from Road, Trains, Airlines to the EPATS? 4. How to integrate EPATS traffic with future ATM projected by SESAR? 5. What will be impact on Airports, Environment and Safety?
EPATS Questions 6. How to define Affordable Personal Air Transport? Missions Requirements for EPATS Aircraft? Innovative Technologies? 7. What will be impact on European GA Industry capabilities? 8. What should be business models to make all those reasonable? 9. What should be Roadmap and recommended R&TD for next Frame Programs and Strategic Research Agendas?
Conclusions Small aircraft transport system creates real added value for EU by: • keeping energy transport modes, efficiency and harmonizing use of • giving travelers a free choice of transport mode - according to their need, and limited by their time value. More synergy is needed – among fundamental European projects (i. e. SESAR) and European GA
