Honeywell publishes guide to US/European AAM aircraft certification rules

Honeywell has launched an Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) certification reference guide across key vehicle segments.

“Complex regulations are being developed to enable the certification and operations of crewed and uncrewed AAM vehicles designed to transport people and cargo. Until now, there had been no place these regulations had been comprehensively tracked,” said a company press release. “Business and government leaders, engineers, media and anyone else with an interest in the future of flight can use the Honeywell State of UAS and UAM Certification Guide to help navigate and communicate the complexities of vehicle certification and operational approval across multiple vehicle segments.”

“We understand the challenges that professionals working in the Advanced Air Mobility industry face as they look to navigate, track and ultimately comply with myriad developing regulations,” said Jia Xu, chief technology officer, UAM and UAS, Honeywell Aerospace. “Because Honeywell provides certifiable, mission-critical systems that make AAM vehicles fly, it’s essential that we understand the certification landscape across all AAM segments. We initially developed this certification summary table as a quick reference for our own team; however, we quickly realized that the information here can benefit the wider industry. We intend to update this document regularly to help AAM companies keep pace with regulatory development.”
