NBAA and GAMA applaud US House commitment to Advanced Air Mobility



The National Business Aviation Association and The General Aviation Manufacturers Association have welcomed House passage of legislation to accelerate the growth of advanced air mobility (AAM).

The Advanced Aviation Infrastructure Modernization Act (AAIM Act), H.R. 6270, supported by NBAA, authorizes funding to plan for and eventually build new AAM infrastructure by leveraging existing vertiports and other public transportation facilities to support AAM operations and fosters community engagement programs to introduce the latest technologies to a diverse set of communities.

The legislation was first introduced last December by T&I Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Rick Larsen (D-2-WA), Ranking Aviation Subcommittee Member Garret Graves (R-6-LA) and Rep. Dina Titus (D-1-NV) and has attracted nearly 30 bi-partisan co-sponsors.

“We applaud the House of Representatives for passing this important legislation, which will support the future of on-demand aviation,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “The targeted investments outlined in this legislation will assist in creating new, innovative and sustainable air transportation networks throughout our country that will support hundreds of thousands of green jobs while also ensuring our nation’s global leadership in aviation.”

“It is very encouraging to see Congress placing a priority on the growth of advanced air mobility," said Pete Bunce, GAMA President and CEO. "We are on the cusp of transforming the future of human flight with the introduction of electric and hybrid powered aircraft into the national airspace system. The support of Congress will be instrumental in the emergence of AAM and its facilitation of additional transportation options, job creation, economic growth, further environmental sustainability, and advancement in aerospace technology.

"Through proper planning and infrastructure preparation, and close cooperation with the FAA on enabling rulemaking, we can lead the way in this promising new sector. We applaud the leadership of Representatives Rick Larsen, Sharice Davids, Garret Graves, Dina Titus and Troy Balderson who have been championing these important pieces of legislation in the House, Bunce continued.”

The Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act, authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to establish an interagency working group composed of leaders from key government agencies to plan for and coordinate efforts for the advancement of the AAM industry. The AAIM Act establishes a two-year pilot initiative that invests $25 million in competitive grants for state, local and tribal governments to further AAM infrastructure.
