Massachusetts, is embracing NASA’s vision for the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), “…to help emerging aviation markets to safely develop an air transportation system that moves people and cargo between places previously not served or underserved by aviation – local, regional, intraregional, urban – using revolutionary new aircraft that are only just now becoming possible. AAM includes NASA’s work on Urban Air Mobility, and will provide substantial benefit to U.S. industry and the public.” Massachusetts is participating in the AAM Integration Task Force (ITF) that brings together industry, academia, and government with funders and development organizations to create a roadmap for Massachusetts. The ITF participants believe that early action is required to develop infrastructure, to include electrification and the use of Smart Grid and Microgrid technologies.

Jeff DeCarlo is the Administrator for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation Aeronautics Division, and the lead for the Commonwealth UAS Integration Program. Jeff provides leadership for unmanned and autonomous air systems efforts including Advanced and Urban Air Mobility (AAM & UAM), He represents the Commonwealth on the AAM Integration Task Force, an effort that brings together a coalition of industry, academia, and government participants representing all necessary stakeholders to define incentives, requirements, and barriers to be resolved to enable AAM growth.

He also serves as the Massachusetts lead for its partnership with the Urban-Air-Mobility Initiative Cities Community (UIC2) of the EU’s CIVITAS Initiative, and he serves as the inaugural Chairman for the World Economic Forum AAM/UAM Cities and Regions Coalition. Jeff is a former United States Air Force and airline pilot with over 10,000 hours in fighter and commercial aircraft and is a graduate of the US Air Force (USAF) Fighter Weapons School.
