The first International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Study Group which took place this week in Montreal, Canada, discussed a coordination and cooperation framework for interaction between ICAO and other Standards Making Organizations related to AAM. Among participants, European standards agency EUROCAE participated to help develop “consistent procedures, formulated through consensus standards and uniform, convergent policies for AAM operations and traffic management,” posts the agency which aims to mitigate concerns and instill public confidence while expediting AAM technology’s acceptance and implementation.
The EASA Project Manager on Drones participated in the Study Group along with other European stakeholders from Member States (Germany, France, Italy) and organizations such as Eurocontrol and SESAR JU, UIC2 to present and explain the European developments and contribute to the making of international standards.
The UTM study area will be co-lead by Robin Garrity and Nabil Sandhu.
ICAO created an “Advanced Air Mobility Study Group” or “AAM SG” to develop a holistic vision and framework of new AAM concepts.
