After a short introduction about the need of extending the urban transportation to the third dimension, the inaugural address will focus on a description of the noise generation mechanisms by different concepts of urban air vehicle, and the state of the art in the numerical modelling of these mechanisms. Results of some benchmark study will be presented for helicopter blade vortex interaction noise, and for ducted fan noise generation and propagation. Then, current and future research activities aimed at developing low-noise propulsion concepts, vehicle architectures and mission profiles, also considering the effects of the urban environment on the noise propagation, will be discussed. The presentation will finally present some of the educational initiatives undertaken by the aerospace faculty in support of the UAM field.
