Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) industry collaboration platform, Greenbird, is pleased to announce the addition of Griffith University as a founding ecosystem partner.

Led by trusted airport and aviation industry advisors, AVISTRA, Greenbird is dedicated to facilitating the entry of the AAM industry into Australia. Bringing together international expertise and knowledge, and local supply chain partners, Greenbird will assist industry, research institutions and government to work together to drive investment attraction, industry operationalisation and local capability.

Griffith University joins the platform alongside recently announced industry experts – Skyports, Nautilus Aviation, Aviator Group and Aviation Projects.

Ranking in the top 2 per cent of universities worldwide, Griffith University challenges conventions and pioneers solutions through cutting-edge research in consultation with industry.

Griffith University’s aviation program provides a focus on the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to last a lifetime. Griffith University has built an international reputation for industry-ready graduates through its innovative approach to aviation education. For more than 25 years, Griffith Aviation has been providing qualifications to the aviation industry and is known worldwide for its innovative and student focused teaching.

Home to world-class research centres and facilities, Griffith University is focused on developing knowledge and understanding in specialist areas, including emerging technologies.

Griffith University Aviation Head Professor Tim Ryley welcomes the collaboration on AAM.

“Working as part of the Greenbird consortium represents an exciting opportunity for Griffith Aviation’s researchers, in being able to analyse future air transport developments,” Professor Ryley said.

“We look forward to building AAM knowledge that will contribute to society for generations to come.”

Building an ecosystem wide, industry led collaboration, Greenbird aims to facilitate an attractive landscape for investment in Queensland’s AAM ecosystem and assist with the creation of certainty around government regulation, policy, and investment attraction settings.

Griffith University aligns closely with Greenbird’s priorities, with its commitment to climate action and in turn, an interest in the decarbonisation of flight, as well as in the articulation of a future in which AAM plays a significant role.

Director of Greenbird, Keith Tonkin said, “Working alongside the academics and industry professionals in Australia’s most highly recognised university aviation unit is a credit to Greenbird. The sheer weight of research capability at Griffith University is showcased through its significant in-house aviation experience and unrivalled depth of knowledge across the aviation sector.”
