RSG is proud to announce the publication of “ACRP Synthesis 130: Airport-Centric Advanced Air Mobility Market Study.” This pivotal work, conducted under the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP), analyses the current state and future potential of advanced air mobility (AAM) at airports nationwide. Led by RSG Senior Director Mark Fowler, the study synthesizes information our team gathered from literature reviews, airport operator surveys, and interviews with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and infrastructure developers.
The study addresses the pressing need for airports to adapt to rapidly evolving transportation technologies, such as electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. It presents findings from six airport case studies, describing the opportunities and challenges airport operators may face as they consider integrating AAM into their infrastructure. The report underscores the need for proactive planning to embrace these changes, from passenger service to cargo and medical transport.
The study provides airport operators, planners, and policymakers with information to better understand the AAM landscape, identify gaps in current research, and gain strategic insights into the planning required for future integration. This report is not just a resource but a stepping stone for those looking to lead in the transformation of urban air mobility.
