Urban Air Mobility (UAM)
Urban Air Mobility (UAM) envisions a safe and efficient aviation transportation system that will use highly automated aircraft to operate and transport passengers or cargo at lower altitudes within urban and suburban areas.
UAM will be composed of an ecosystem that considers the evolution and safety of the aircraft, operational framework, access to airspace, infrastructure development, and community engagement.

Anna is an industry-recognized leader in the urban air mobility (UAM), electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, and innovative personal aviation industries as the principal at AMD Consulting. She is an expert in policy, certification, and government relations in the aviation industry, as well as start-up company operations, and generally solving complex problems in unique ways while inspiring innovation within a sustainable framework.
Yolanka is responsible for CAMI’s programs including the development of topical resources, webinars, conferences and collaborations. She is a member of the Transportation Research Board New Users of Shared Airspace Committee, the NBAA Emerging Technologies Committee, the GAMA Electric Propulsion Innovation Committee, serves on several ASTM committees and as Executive Director of CAFE Foundation where she organizes the annual Electric Aircraft Symposium.
Presented by TBARTA in partnership with the Community Air Mobility Initiative (CAMI)
CAMI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to support the responsible integration of urban air mobility into communities through education, communication and collaboration. CAMI connects communities and industry by providing resources to decision makers, community leaders, and planners at the state and local level. CAMI is dedicated to proving communities and their leaders with the information and tools that are vital to the successful integration of aviation into our daily transportation options. www.communityairmobility.org.
