Varon Vehicles Announces the UAM Names Challenge

May 21, 2021

May 24th, 2021. Today, Varon Vehicles announces the opening of its Urban Air Mobility Names Challenge, a call for anyone to propose the best new names for key elements of Urban Air Mobility for which names have not yet been widely adopted.

Urban Air Mobility is a nascent industry and it is in need for radical new names that define it, that become universal and that stick in perpetuity. Names generate industrial cohesion, understanding and orient public imagination in the same direction. Our company is expectant about what these new ubiquitous names will be – the next airplane, the next automobile.

The challenge is to propose the best names for generalized and long-lasting use by industry and the public. The UAM Names Challenge is starting with two specific challenges and new ones will be added over time. Challenges have opened for the new name for UAM Aircraft and the new name for their on-board Operators. Anyone can enter now to propose names and vote for favourites. Challenges will remain open with no end date, until a winner is declared. Visit the UAM Names Challenge site to see the rules and selection criteria.

Whenever a winner is declared, either soon or in a long time, winner names will be adopted for use by Varon Vehicles and proposed to their broad industry partners ecosystem, media and stakeholders, for wide and generalized adoption. A historical research will be made to assign credit to the winner. A record will be maintained of the winner name for each specific challenge and the credited person or entity who proposed it. Varon Vehicles will publish the winner and grant a recognition certificate which will be sent by physical mail and it will be announced publicly. Winner names will also be included in Flight Crowd’s Urban Air Mobility Glossary, a growing industry effort to compile key Urban/Advanced Air Mobility terms.

The Varon Vehicles UAM Names Challenge is powered by Flight Crowd. Their wide knowledge of aerospace industry, its history and their multiple educational tools and resources are instrumental in the evaluation of Names for the UAM Names Challenge. They will aid in determining eligibility, pre-selection and background of proposed names. Flight Crowd also contributes to the structuring of the specific challenges.
