2024 8th Workshop on AAM Infrastructure

AAM Infrastructure Workshop



VFS is holding its 8th Workshop on AAM Infrastructure in Washington, DC, at the US Navy Memorial Visitor Center on Tues.–Wed., Sept. 17–18, 2024.

Tuesday morning will begin with an introduction to the key challenges, followed by a deep dive into important and timely topics, focused on broadening understanding of the issues and developing solutions, with a closing discussion on Wednesday afternoon.

This is the eighth in a (now annual) series of workshops on AAM infrastructure begun in September 2019. 


  • Provide an open forum to stakeholders and interested parties from industry and applicable government and regulatory bodies to discuss Operations & Safety requirements and expectations as they relate to AAM technology and infrastructure.
  • Conduct facilitated discussions regarding key Operational & Safety questions pertaining to AAM infrastructure to better understand potential AAM aircraft limitations and aerodynamic deficiencies that must be considered in future infrastructure development.
  • Identify collaborative research and development opportunities necessary for creating safe infrastructure design standards based on aircraft performance criteria.


  • Build upon existing safety data to identify pre-competitive areas where proactive industry collaboration would be valuable in accelerating adoption.
  • Identify collaborative opportunities between industry and government agencies that will benefit the AAM industry.
  • Draft consensus-based strategies to advance infrastructure Operations and Safety at key Federal, State and Local levels.
