MTI and AAP publish advanced air mobility planning document

The Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) and the American Planning Association have partnered to publish the new PAS Report 606, Plan­ning for Advanced Air Mobility.  The partners say they recognise the potential impacts of these aviation technologies on communities,  and that the report delves into the intricacies of this emerging mode of transportation and aims to provide planners, policymakers, industry leaders, and the public with valuable insights that can inform strategic decisions, foster collaboration, and guide the evolution of advanced air mobility.

According to the reports Executive summary “Advanced air mobility (AAM) could result in fundamental changes to land use and the built environment and transform how people access essential services (e.g., emergency and medical services), goods, and mobility. While the impacts of these innovations remain to be seen, planners and policymakers need to prepare for these changes to minimise the potential for adverse impacts and maximise the likelihood of sustainable and equitable outcomes.

“This PAS Report presents planners and policymakers with the foundational knowledge to understand potential AAM considerations and community impacts, and it pro­vides information for the public sector to integrate AAM into planning and policymaking at the local and regional levels of government. The report also discusses the role of community planners with respect to AAM, and the im­portance of local and regional governments working with the Federal Aviation Administration, which is the safety regulator for the U.S. aviation industry and the National Airspace System.”

The authors of the report are Adam Cohen, senior researcher at Transportation Sustainability Research Center at the Uni­versity of California, Berkeley; Susan Shaheen, Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley; and Yolanka Wulff, Executive Director of the Community Air Mobility Initiative (CAMI).
