The Future of Mobility

Air Mobility Experience

The Detroit Auto Show announced that an all-new “Air Mobility Experience” will join the Sept. 14 - 25, 2022, auto show lineup, bringing science fiction to reality over the skies of Detroit and Windsor. This “Show Above the Show” will feature flight demonstrations and displays by six international air mobility innovators, including one homegrown Detroit startup, who are expanding the future of personal mobility beyond boundaries ever imagined. 

Originating from five countries, these pioneers in new air mobility technology will be taking to the land and skies with everything from electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft to amphibious sport planes to hoverbikes, hoverboards and jet suits.

The Air Mobility Experience will take place over the Detroit River, in Hart Plaza and in Huntington Place. Flight demonstrations of the XTURISMO, Gravity Jet Suit, ICON A5 and Omni Hoverboard begin Media Day, Wednesday, Sept. 14 and run through Sunday, Sept. 18. Air Mobility displays and experiences featuring AIR ONE, ASX’s Sigma-6 and the ICON A5 will be featured inside Huntington Place for the run of the show (Sept. 14 - 25).
