Strategic Corporate Partner Webinar brought to you by HNTB

Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) is “taking off” and adding a new dimension to mobility services. Advancements have been underway from the use of drone technology to the movement of people and cargo via electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Some states have been at the forefront of this progress as they develop policy and strategic initiatives to provide for a safe and vibrant ecosystem that best serves their residents, businesses, and visitors. Join panelists from three states with deep histories in aviation as they share their AAM journey and vision for the future. Featured Speakers included Beth Kigel - Vice President, HNTB; Grayson Ardies - State Director, Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission; Preeti Choudhary - Executive Director, DriveOhio and Rebecca Gallas - Director of Aviation, NCDOT.
