Webinar: Safe Flight for Drones – Designing a System for Urban Air Mobility

NASA Aeronautics: Aviation at the Leading Edge Webinar: Safe Flight for Drones-Designing a System for Urban Air Mobility

During the fall of 2019, a trio of free webinars were presented by NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate and the National Space Grant Program. They were produced by Old Dominion University at their studio in Norfolk, Virginia.

Each of the sessions featured conversations with NASA researchers who are working on key areas of interest that will help reinvent aviation for the rest of the 21st century. In addition to the technical aspects of their work, they also discussed their educational and career paths.

Students and faculty at universities in the United States and around the world watched the webinars live online and were able to ask questions of the participants.

In this webinar, NASA’s work with its partners to determine the best way to move forward with implementing Urban Air Mobility, a safe and efficient system for passenger and cargo air transportation using both piloted and autonomous drones, is discussed. Leading the session was Jeff Homola from NASA’s Ames Research Center in California and Starr Ginn from NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center.  Suzanne Smith, director of the Kentucky Space Grant Consortium, moderated the session.
