Autonomous Aircraft Research to Inform AAM

Rotor Safety Challenge (RSC)
Instructor: Chris Tysor, Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership at Virginia Tech

FAA test sites have been conducting informative research for the agency as well as NASA that will directly inform and enable future advanced air mobility (AAM) initiatives. In this session, direct correlations will be made between the research performed and the recently released NASA UAM (urban air mobility) Airspace Research Roadmap.
