“…Two new bills that were passed by the United States House of Representatives this past week target the advanced air mobility (AAM) sector.
The passage of the Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act on Thursday calls for the development of an interagency working group to help the federal government develop a strategy to promote AAM.
Pete Bunce, president and CEO of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), applauded the decision to pass the bill. In a press release, he stated that the legislation will help advance the sector, believing AAM will provide additional transportation options, create jobs, spur economic activity, advance environmental sustainability, and support emergency preparedness.
“We commend the House for passing this important bipartisan legislation and are grateful for those that championed it,” Bunce said.
Earlier this year, a similar bill was passed out of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. There are slight differences between the House and Senate bill, and the Senate as a whole has yet to vote on its version.
