Crawl, Walk, Run, Fly! – Urban Traffic Milestones

Updated: Apr 27

Both the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) have turned their attention to unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM). They’ve done this in the context of what the FAA calls urban air mobility (UAM) and what NASA calls advanced air mobility (AAM). NASA recently kicked off an AAM National Campaign and related workshops. FAA’s NextGen Office also recently published its UTM CONOPS version 2.0, which addresses increasingly complex operations within both controlled and uncontrolled air environments. Both agencies are taking a “crawl, walk, run” approach. What milestones need to be met before we can fly? We explore the Top 10 here.

Topics: urban air mobility, detect and avoid, surveillance, airspace integration, airspace separation, remote identification, UAS traffic management, UTM, UAM, communication, cybersecurity, privacy, infrastructure, noise mitigation, public acceptance
