Is Autonomous Air Taxi Hype for Real?

Panel discussion

October 3rd, 2019, 6-8 PM


 Some have said it is one of the most complex aviation challenges society has dreamt since Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the Moon.  The art of safely flying autonomous aircraft in the national airspace system, while paying passengers enjoy the cityscape from above, is certainly on the horizon.   However, the question on everyone’s mind remains, but when?   To provide an insider’s perspective on Urban Air Mobility (UAM), we have invited four top Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) experts to provide their view on what technologies, regulations, and infrastructure will be necessary to safely carry a person across town within minutes.

  • Steve Bradford - Chairman, FAA Technical Review Board 
  • Karen DiMeo - Head of Policy and Government Affairs, AiRXOS – Part of GE Aviation
