The vision to revolutionize mobility within metropolitan areas is one of the most exciting frontiers in modern aviation. NASA remains committed to supporting accessible air transport systems for passengers and cargo by working with the urban air mobility (UAM) community to identify and address the key challenges ahead.

In 2020, NASA will host a UAM ecosystem-wide challenge for participants to execute system level safety and integration scenarios within a robust and relevant environment. The goal of this first in a series of UAM Grand Challenges, which we are calling GC-1, is to promote public confidence in UAM safety and facilitate community-wide learning while capturing the public’s imagination.

For the UAM Grand Challenge to be successful, NASA is seeking expectations from industry partners who are highly motivated to participate and work with us to achieve a safe, commercial operating capability.
