Advanced air mobility (AAM) represents the next generation of aircraft innovation, bringing mobility options to communities for passenger, air cargo, and emergency services.
To be prepared and foster a community voice for effective implementation, local governments—both urban and rural—should start planning for AAM as part of broader metropolitan and regional mobility plans.
Multiple emerging technologies—such as electrification of aviation, connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), and shared mobility—will influence AAM planning efforts toward delivering equitable and sustainable solutions. Understanding how to apply these technologies in an integrated transportation context will be essential for AAM implementation to have the best community impact.
