FAA Advanced Air Mobility Implementation Plan

The FAA has released an implementation plan providing the steps it and others will need to take to safely enable advanced air mobility operations in the near term. The “Innovate28” plan includes various components and the sequence they will occur in for operations to be at scale at one or more sites by 2028.

This AAM Implementation Plan is a living document that will guide implementation efforts and mature as the FAA works with stakeholders to refine and execute AAM implementation strategies.

It will be updated periodically to reflect the continued plans and progress with AAM integration, roadmaps, and schedules for I28 and beyond as work continues to advance towards the mature state vision of AAM operations across the NAS.

Version 1.0 provides details for the near-term I28 initiative, which will enable a repeatable AAM ecosystem at key locations based on information known to date. The evolution of AAM beyond I28 is also previewed. Version 1.0 specifically addresses the following:

I28 Key Site Operations
o Description of the operating environment in 2028 based on assumptions and expectations

of AAM aircraft and operations, including a scenario thread for a generic key site location

o Overarching framework that FAA stakeholders can use to identify and work through key challenge areas, executing to a common vision

I28 Workstreams
o Holistic approach to the required efforts, both internal and external to the FAA, needed to

meet I28 goals (presented in Section 2)

o Descriptions of work completed to date and gaps to be addressed in Certification, Airspace and Air Traffic Management, Infrastructure, Environment, Hazardous Materials Safety, and Community Engagement

I28 Integrated Master Schedule
o Detailed schedule across workstream focus areas that supports I28 operations and leave

behind processes

o Tool for tracking the milestones of internal and external stakeholders (e.g., tribal/state/local government, and industry) who manage their own activities relevant to implementation at specific site(s)

AAM Evolution Framework

o High-level view of the evolution of AAM operations and an associated framework for the continued development and commitments that are needed to advance AAM integration in the NAS
