New Aviation Group Committee on New Users of Shared Airspace

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) Aviation Group has created a new committee, the New Users of Shared Airspace Committee. This committee focuses on emerging and growing applications in aviation, such as commercial space operations, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and urban (or advanced) air mobility. Some of the research needs of this new sector include the development of rules and procedures that allow these new operations to occur harmoniously and safely among both themselves and existing airspace users. The new committee’s research also will address topics of interest to other TRB committees: automation, emerging opportunities in urban transportation, and legal and operational coordination challenges across modes.
