Urban Movement Labs (UML), in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, has announced the publishing of Integrating Advanced Air Mobility: A Primer For Cities.
In a press release ULM says “The primer serves as a guide for cities and jurisdictions seeking to understand how they might begin exploring their own policy response to emerging AAM technologies. It accomplishes this by providing a review of the state of the AAM industry in terms of technology development and emerging policy at the federal level. A ‘flight plan’ summarises steps the City of Los Angeles has taken thus far in laying a foundation for future policy development. Finally, emerging opportunities and considerations guide near- and mid-term decision making cities to begin planning for the integration of advanced air mobility technologies.”
Integrating Advanced Air Mobility: A Primer For Cities is a culmination of the first phase of work completed by the AAM partnership reports the press release which it says “was established to understand the AAM landscape and inform future policies in the City of Los Angeles. The Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the collaboration between the City of Los Angeles and Urban Movement Labs, a 501(c)3 non profit organisation, following the city’s collaboration in 2020 with the World Economic Forum to create the Principles of the Urban Sky.
“The goals of the AAM Partnership are to inform and engage community members, interface with the industry and follow technology and policy development, and to support the City in policy development.”
