#Equaleverywhere: Flying barrier-free

Personal mobility is a basic human need. Yet the corona pandemic has made each of us acutely aware of how painful limitations to personal mobility are. While for the majority of people these restrictions are temporary, there is also another group: People with Reduced Mobility (PRMs) are confronted with mobility restrictions every day, even outside the corona crisis - including in air travel. The aviation industry is therefore working intensively to remove barriers for PRMs as best as possible, while at the same time successively increasing the level of comfort and thus making air travel an attractive and comfortable form of mobility for all people.
In this context, so-called single-aisle aircraft are increasingly coming into focus. Even before the Corona crisis, this type of aircraft was in greater demand than wide-body aircraft - and the trend is still upwards.

FACC wants to leave court decision behind - 2022: "We have seen the bottom, it will go up step by step"

Accessible travel: Thinking beyond horizons!

Flying is often associated with freedom - one of our most important fundamental rights. Accessible travel is an important keyword here: numerous regulations are designed to ensure that persons with reduced mobility (PRM) are not disadvantaged in any way. Aircraft are supposed to offer barrier-free access to lavatories, seats and much more - but not all fleets offer a barrier-free flight experience. Reasons for this are partly due to the different regulations of individual countries or state associations. The following BLOG provides an overview of the most important legal regulations.

AIRlabs works on test and trial areas for unmanned aerial systems

AIRlabs Austria GmbH, founded in January 2020, is the operating organization of the AIRlabs project - the abbreviation "AIRlabs" stands for Aeronautical Innovation & Research Laboratories Austria. Together with renowned partners from science, industry, as well as various research institutes and authorities, AIRlabs Austria is starting to set up and operate test and trial areas for unmanned aerial vehicle systems in Austria as part of "Take Off". The future research, development and certification of UAS (Unpiloted Aerial Systems) will be supported in real test areas, thus enabling an innovation path across all technology maturity levels.

FACC is promoting the in-house production of components and materials. After all, vertical integration particularly pays off during crisis situations.

Flight Hailing; Flight Sharing

Sharing economy and the mobility of tomorrow

In order to get from A to B, many solutions have been established on the market in recent years that eliminate the need to own a car. A large proportion of these solutions relate to the Sharing Economy approach, which is based on the shared use of mobility solutions. These mobility services need to be highly frequented in order to become profitable and viable in the long term. Consequently, these developments can be observed above all in urban areas, as they are associated with a higher population density and thus a higher probability of use. Overall, sharing mobility solutions have an impact on the sustainable symbiosis of ecology and economy.

BIOS - FUTURE CABIN

In designing BIOS-FUTURE CABIN, FACC is working with a completely new design approach for the first time. The holistic concept combines the design disciplines Interior, Exterior and Passenger Experience (PX) from the very first sketch. Nature, people and their perception are the starting point for a design process from the inside out. The design process starts with the passenger experience and deliberately focuses on passenger perception and needs. The goal is to create a cabin concept that expands the passengers‘ perception. It also aims to create an immersive experience where passengers connect with each other, the cabin and the environment in a unique way.

Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRMs) - one of the fastest growing passenger groups in aviation

To understand the needs of a passenger with reduced mobility, we should be aware that the demand is increasing. All demographic indicators show that the population is ageing worldwide. More than one fifth of the world's population in 2050 will have some form of disability, which includes age-related mobility problems.
