International organizations and national authorities, in partnership with industry stakeholders, have ensured that aviation maintains the best safety track record of any transport modality in history. The rapidly evolving needs of cities, expectations of, for and by society as well as fast-paced technological advancements are poised to challenge conventional models for input gathering, societal integration and evolution of the overall mobility system.

UAM industry leaders and policy-makers will benefit from an updated policy road map to meet the needs of diverse stakeholders and to design a transport option that can provide a vision for the Fourth Industrial Revolution closer to those who will use the system. This will enable more effective, efficient, equitable, accessible and impactful transport for all.

This publication lays the groundwork for other cities and regions to share their experiences and vision for UAM. The City of Los Angeles and the World Economic Forum are looking forward to advancing work on Urban Air Mobility as part of an International Coalition of Cities fostering UAM activities.
