This summer, the 8th Annual FAA Drone Symposium and the first-ever Advanced Air Mobility Summit will be co-hosted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI).
Representatives from the FAA, other government agencies, international aviation experts, industry leaders, and academia will come together for the two events, taking place from August 1-3 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Maryland. The events, the 8th Annual FAA Drone Symposium and the first-ever Advanced Air Mobility Summit, will cover the latest information and advancements related to the various applications of drones and the safe integration of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft such as air taxis into the National Airspace System. The presenters and panelists will share their insights on these topics.
The theme for this year’s Drone Symposium is “Time to Accelerate.” During the sessions and workshops, the focus will be on how the FAA is safely integrating drones and creating a regulatory framework to expedite advanced operations such as UAS Traffic Management (UTM) and beyond visual line of sight.
The first-ever FAA AAM Summit theme is “Leveraging the Skies.” Sessions and workshops will focus on how air taxis and electric vertical take-off, and landing (eVTOL) aircraft will change the future of aviation. FAA panelists and speakers will highlight the FAA’s ongoing work to enable safe, efficient and secure operations that meet the high safety standards the public expects and deserves.
