About the Presentation:
A new era of human mobility is on the horizon as investment pours into transformative airborne technologies referred to as advanced air mobility (AAM) - the local, on-demand movement of people and goods by air using autonomous or uncrewed electric aircraft that take off and land vertically (eVTOL). "Flying taxis" and the concept of aerial ridesharing at traditional taxi prices portend a reduction in congestion and a radically improved urban mobility experience relative to heavy-infrastructure approaches such as roads, rails, bridges and tunnels. This presentation will introduce the subject and address practical and legal/regulatory feasibility of AAM. It will present both above-the-ground issues, including an evaluation of known and anticipated legal and technical challenges in enabling the safe, secure, and efficient operation of an increasingly complex airspace, as well as on-the-ground concerns, including safety and security, governance challenges, the environment and community impact. Equitable and ethical considerations also are addressed: Will the central imagined benefit of AAM - inexpensive, green, on-demand aerial mobility- include everybody?
