The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced an agreement with the Korea Office of Civil Aviation (KOCA) to partner on the future of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft development and operations.
A Declaration of Cooperation has been signed by the two agencies to collaborate on AAM projects, share ideas, information, skills and techniques. The FAA and KOCA will also work together to promote the safety oversight of AAM, including airworthiness, licensing, and operations.
Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen, said: “Collaborating with our international partners on safely integrating these new technologies will create more efficient, sustainable and equitable transportation options.”
The FAA has created partnerships with Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, in a bid to harmonize certification criteria and integration plans.
