NBAA has formed a new Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Roundtable as a forum for high-level policy planning to chart a course for the integration of AAM technologies into U.S. airspace and infrastructure. According to NBAA, the roundtable will allow OEMs developing electric vertical takeoff and landing transport (eVTOL) vehicles and other systems to discuss topics such as airport access, airspace management, and local community engagement.

“On-demand air mobility offers tremendous opportunities, especially for business aviation,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “We are uniquely suited to offer expertise in tackling the considerations associated with AAM integration, and we are pleased to partner with this group of AAM leaders in moving this technology forward.”

Founding members of NBAA’s AAM Roundtable include Eve Air Mobility, Hillwood Aviation, Hyundai UAM, Joby Aviation, Lilium, and Wisk. The inaugural meeting of the forum took place in February, with additional meetings planned throughout the year.
