Advanced air mobility (AAM) is a broad concept enabled by new technology with the potential to transform aviation and urban transportation systems over the next 10 years. Some of these technologies include electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft as well as traditional fixed-wing aircraft using electric or other advanced propulsion systems.
ACRP Synthesis 130: Airport-Centric Advanced Air Mobility Market Study, from TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program, is designed to help airports and other stakeholders as they plan for AAM. Many of the initial use cases for AAM will be integrated into existing airports of all sizes, including airport ground access, connecting passenger service between regional and hub airports, and cargo operations.
