GAMA Applauds US House Commitment to Advanced Air Mobility 

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for passing two important bills that support the development of the advanced air mobility (AAM) sector – the Advanced Aviation Infrastructure Modernization (AAIM) Act (H.R. 6270) and the Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act (S. 516).

“It is very encouraging to see Congress placing a priority on the growth of advanced air mobility. We are on the cusp of transforming the future of human flight with the introduction of electric and hybrid powered aircraft into the national airspace system. The support of Congress will be instrumental in the emergence of AAM and its facilitation of additional transportation options, job creation, economic growth, further environmental sustainability, and advancement in aerospace technology. Through proper planning and infrastructure preparation, and close cooperation with the FAA on enabling rulemaking, we can lead the way in this promising new sector,” said Pete Bunce, GAMA President and CEO. “We applaud the leadership of Representatives Rick Larsen, Sharice Davids, Garret Graves, Dina Titus and Troy Balderson who have been championing these important pieces of legislation in the House.” 

The Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act, authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to establish an interagency working group composed of leaders from key government agencies to plan for and coordinate efforts for the advancement of the AAM industry. The AAIM Act establishes a two-year pilot initiative that invests $25 million in competitive grants for state, local and tribal governments to further AAM infrastructure.
