Mariya Tarabanovska is an Urban Air Mobility (UAM) advisor with a traditional Engineering education, a passion for STEM volunteering and outreach as well as a background in Art and Design. 

Mariya’s first degree was Product Design gained from Central Saint Martins College, the University of the Arts London. It made her always want to explore the aspects of Design and Technology where exciting innovation brings both together. 

Her most recent Masters of Aerospace Engineering degree from the University of Manchester, on the other hand, helped her better understand the difficulties as well as the opportunities one can find in the aviation industry. It also led to Mariya getting involved in shaping the fast-developing and very promising Urban Air Mobility industry set to revolutionise the ways in which we live and travel. Through her numerous involvements in the field ranging from market research to flight testing and eVTOL implementation scenarios development, Miss Tarabanovska is now leading Flight Crowd, an open Urban Air Mobility community set to educate the public on the topic of vertical mobility and inspire future generations to consider a career in UAM. 

Mariya believes that 21st century Aerospace professionals should aim to shape an accessible, sustainable and safe future of mobility and transportation, and is very excited about the potential benefits that UAM and other future flight technologies will bring to the world.
