State aviation and aerospace officials begin exchanging views on policies and innovation for safe and sustainable AAM operations and economic development.
Representatives from aviation and aerospace organizations in eight states have launched the “Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Multistate Collaborative” to exchange views and methods to enable public infrastructure and services supporting the new generation of aircraft based on emerging technologies that are providing high levels of safety, efficiency and environmental sustainability. The group recently held its inaugural meeting in Herndon, Virginia, and was organized by the Virginia Department of Aviation, the Virginia Innovation Partnership Corporation (VIPC) and JobsOhio, to discuss the state-level policies and infrastructure needed to support AAM operations across the country.
“Our goal is to support the growth of the industry and help with the safe evolution of AAM from the laboratory to the skies.”— Tracy Tynan, Director, Virginia Unmanned Systems Center at VIPC
