Aviation is undergoing a technological revolution, from the proliferation of drones of all sizes designed for commercial use to the promise of new, innovative, highly automated aircraft to transport passengers and cargo, including electric and vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. Government authorities are revising existing regulations and devising new ones to ensure that these new forms of flight can safely share the air with traditional airliners and smaller aircraft carrying people.
How can air traffic management (ATM) be integrated with unmanned air traffic management (UTM)? What new aviation rules for drones are already in place? What new rules are just over the horizon?
For answers, please join senior policymakers from U.S. and European aviation authorities, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, D.C. and the Wilson Center’s Science and Technology Innovation Program (STIP) for a public conversation.
