Cities and regions across the European Union see the opportunities of urban air mobility (UAM) services characterised from very-low altitude air traffic with zero emission air vehicles (e.g drones and air taxis). But they also see new tasks and responsibilities, which extends the governance of U-Space down to the level of local and regional authorities. Therefore, this manifesto pleads for explicitly acknowledging the role of cities and regions in the multilevel governance of U-Space and giving them a deciding role as competent authority, along with other pertinent stakeholders, in the governance of U-Space, or UAM, operations in their territories.
