Business Aviation Leading the Way on Emerging Technologies

The business aviation community’s embrace of emerging technologies was evident throughout 2019 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE). Brad Hayden, founder and CEO of Robotic Skies, joined industry leaders Dr. Parimal Kopardekar (Director of NASA Aeronautics Research Institute), Kate Fraser (Safety Lead at Joby Aviation), and Jacob Velky (Manager of Unmanned Aerial Systems at Duke Energy) on stage for the Integrating Emerging Technologies into the NAS session. The panel discussed the regulatory, safety, and supply chain considerations that will impact business aviation as UAM becomes a reality.
