The term Urban Air Mobility covers many several applications to meet different transport needs. The cross-institutional and interdisciplinary research project "HorizonUAM - Urban Air Mobility Research at the German Aerospace Center (DLR)" brings together a wide variety of departments from the DLR research fields to research on the vision of Urban Air Mobility. This paper describes the five use cases Intra-City, Mega-City, Airport-Shuttle, SubUrban and Inter-City, which were defined in order to create a common working basis for the project. In addition to the description of the transport needs, the paper presents technology scenarios, mission profiles, concepts of operation, vehicle configurations and infrastructure related to the use cases. Based on the defined use cases, technical feasibility, efficiency, sustainability, market development potential and social acceptance will be investigated in the course of the project.
