Workshop: Enhancing Future VTOL Usage  

Like ICAAMS-1, this event will include a half-day workshop that will explore the barriers for expanded use of existing and future vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, and discuss strategies to address the situation. It aims to provide a platform to all stakeholders from the field of research and development to manufacturers, regulators, operators and other leaders in the industry to discuss issues and challenges. 

he Workshop will discuss how we can ensure the smooth induction and operationalization of the new Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft, while ensuring that the regulatory and operational hurdles are overcome to allow AAM to fulfill its promise as a gamechanger for society.

The Workshop will also highlight the global status of the efforts by various stakeholders in AAM. This includes the design and development, standards & certification, airspace management and operationalization of the AAM platforms. The Workshop will also discuss the challenges which the industry is likely to face as we embrace new concepts and technology.

The outcome of the Workshop will help generate ideas to develop an “AAM Roadmap” for Singapore in the immediate future by the relevant authorities to enhance the usage of not only its present helicopter fleet, but also the expected introduction of AAM platforms.
