Replicator cities and regions
The AiRMOUR project organised an open call and invited 10 cities or regions to join the development of Urban Air Mobility as Replicators. Additionally, the Dubai Future Foundation and the City of Stockholm were identified as Replicators in the planning phase of the project. Replicators bring their local UAM vision, strategy and activities forward by testing and validating the main outputs of AiRMOUR and assist in gaining a better understanding of how to integrate Urban Air Mobility into legal systems and policies throughout Europe.

Non-funded affiliates and supporters
The AiRMOUR project has several affiliates and supporters that do not receive a contribution from the European Commission, but play an important role in the project nonetheless.
Some of these have an active role, for example, in the facilitation of the simulations and the real-life demonstrations taking place in 2023. Other affiliates and supporters may participate in training courses and yet others may want to concentrate on carrying lessons learned forward in their respective cities.

External Advisory Board
AiRMOUR has established an External Advisory Board with individuals from key organisations in the field of urban air mobility. The Board is responsible for reviewing and commenting the main deliverables and outputs of the AiRMOUR project. Board members come from several continents and represent various sectors, such as regulatory bodies, research, industry and network organisations.
Board members take part in various consortium meetings in an advisory capacity. They also have an important replicator and disseminator role, by communicating progress and results in their organisations and networks. Some of the External Advisory Board members are likely to act in a teaching capacity in the AiRMOUR training courses.

Cooperation with other UAM projects
The AiRMOUR partners work in close cooperation with other European Union funded projects in the field of urban air mobility.
The cooperation is especially close with the other two projects funded as part of the original MG3.6 call for proposals, namely AURORA and Flying Forward 2020. The AiRMOUR project together with these two projects cover a wide range of urban air mobility aspects and by joining forces are about to become the “UAM storytellers of Europe”.
