IFAR identified an eminent research demand regarding AAM in three topics:

  • Safety standards of vehicles and operations
  • Emitted noise during operations
  • Social acceptance through customers as well as the affected population (public confidence) on the ground during operations

These three research pillars are crucial for an accelerated market diffusion of this new and
promising field of AAM and should therefore be a focus of possible multilateral research
cooperation within the IFAR community.
