NASA Outlines Urban Air Mobility Plans Written 8 November 2018

ExecutiveBiz reports that NASA held a two-day meeting in Seattle last week “to inform commercial, academic and government organizations of the space agency’s plans to develop an urban air mobility ecosystem.” More than 400 government and aviation industry representatives “engaged in discussions about the UAM Grand Challenge, which is scheduled to officially launch in late 2020, NASA said Wednesday.” NASA hopes to demonstrate the potential for UAVs to “carry adult passengers within a simulated and complex urban environment.” The FAA will collect “information from the activities to provide regulatory guidelines on the safety, certification and airspace integration of UAM operations.” Interested parties can express interest to NASA about participating in the Grand Challenge until November 16.
