Podcast: NBAA Responds to Proposed Rules on AAM Ops

Aug. 28, 2023

NBAA recently joined with five other industry associations in submitting comments on the FAA’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on the operation of advanced air mobility (AAM) vehicles in the National Airspace System. While the NPRM represents significant progress toward the start of commercial AAM operations as soon as 2025, industry stakeholders noted a few concerns, including attempts to adapt existing aircraft standards to this new segment. “Trying to write very specific rules in the early days is difficult to do,” acknowledged Greg Bowles with Joby. “By using performance-based requirements … you can set the intent for a whole range of exciting new activities.”

In this episode of “NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Greg Bowles, head of government and regulatory affairs at Joby Aviation
  • Paul McDuffee, senior principal for airspace integration at Supernal and vice chair of NBAA’s Emerging Technologies Committee
  • Michael Romanowski, head of government affairs at Archer Aviation
