Accelerating Advanced Air Mobility 

Tuesday, February 27, 9:00 am – 5:30 pm 

Advanced Air Mobility offers exciting new possibilities for the future of air transportation. These vehicles offer new approaches to move passengers and cargo throughout urban and regional environments, while at the same time encouraging the use of hybrid and electric propulsion systems. Join us as we discuss the future integration of this system into the transportation network, with a specific focus on the future training needs of the AAM workforce.

Prioritizing Aviation Mental Health 

Wednesday, February 28, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm 

Mental health has long been a safety concern in all sectors of the aviation industry, particularly as related to pilots. Developing strategies to enhance prevention, identification, support, and recovery systems for students and professionals requires collaboration between key stakeholders, including educational institutions, government, industry and the military. Don’t miss this meaningful networking opportunity that can help to ensure a healthier and safer aviation industry.

There will be two research poster presentation sessions:

Tuesday, February 27 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm Advanced Air Mobility

Wednesday, February 28 9:30 am – 11:00 am Aviation Mental Health

The two research poster sessions will provide an opportunity for attendees to explore all research projects and interact directly with the researchers.
