For many years NASA has been laying the groundwork for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM). This includes continued research efforts to guide the industry's development of electric air taxis and drones. NASA is also delivering data to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to help safely integrate these vehicles into the national airspace. The FAA is the deciding body for certification and standards for these aircraft to fly. Passenger flights by air taxi or new automated cargo delivery aircraft powered by electric motors and other types of cutting-edge propulsion technologies could become a reality in the 2025-2028 timeframe. This week the FAA released its Advanced Air Mobility Implementation Plan -- a blueprint for how that will happen.
