Listen to the latest Rethink Vertical Podcast on AAM policy insights

The Rethink Vertical podcast, brought to you by the UAS Cluster Initiative, brings you emerging aerospace industry insight, without the fluff. These immersive conversations highlight where the industry is today and how it will shape the technology of tomorrow.

In the latest Rethink Vertical Podcast , Julia Norsetter, Transportation Policy Lead at Reed Smith, joins host Craig Mahaney in what turned out to be a very timely conversation. Julia and Craig discuss the challenges and opportunities in advanced air mobility along with what industry and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are doing to move the adoption of this technology forward. Shortly after the recording of this episode, the FAA released a notice of proposed rulemaking surrounding unpublished integration of powered lift pilot certification and operations.
