After the success of CIVATAglobal’s first FREE webinar in February, the company has arranged a second one for Wednesday, March 24th. Entitled: European Local Authorities and the UAM Challenge Series – Scaling Up From Drones to Air Taxis, the one hour program starts at 11am (UTC)/12 noon (CET).
CIVATA explains, “For many local authorities, the immediate UAM challenge is to develop a policy which will allow for municipalities, the national aviation safety regulator and operators to work together to launch safe drone flights above people. But this is just the first stage.”
It goes on, “By 2030 a UAM eco-system will comprise a complex network of aerial routes, ground infrastructure and traffic management systems, potentially allowing for hundreds of daily autonomous drone transport missions carrying people and goods around the city, while other drones will fly monitoring and surveillance missions.”
And concludes, “To ensure readiness to seamlessly deploy the new technologies in beneficial ways for the community, local authorities need to take an immediate and strategic approach towards public engagement and the infrastructure planning process.”
