NASA is working with its many partners to enable a number of new air travel options that can meet your needs, whether that’s transporting you and your family across town in an air taxi, or delivering supper to your door by way of a fully autonomous drone. And there are hundreds of more ideas out there waiting to be put in service, many related to providing public health and safety services.
Future Air Travel Options
NASA’s Vision for Advanced Air Mobility
NASA is working to help emerging aviation markets safely develop an air transportation system that moves people and cargo between places previously not served or underserved by aviation – local, regional, intraregional, urban – using revolutionary new aircraft that are only just now becoming possible.
Keep an eye on this Drones & You page as we collect stories and other content here related to this new future.
Several projects supporting NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility or AAM mission are working on different elements to help make AAM a reality. AAM could be used in healthcare operations in the form of air taxi ambulances or medical supply delivery in the future. This concept graphic shows how a future AAM vehicle could aid in healthcare by carrying passengers to a hospital.
