PAMA Director Ken MacTiernan Represents FAA Mechanics on NASA's Advanced Air Mobility Ecosystem Working Group
PAMA Vice President Ken MacTiernan will represent the trade association on NASA's Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Ecosystem Working Group (AEWG). The NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate is currently soliciting interested parties to participate in the initiative with the mission to accelerate the development of safe, high-volume AAM flight operations by bringing together the broad community involved in developing AMM.
The primary purpose of the AAM ecosystem working groups is to share input, information and opinions to enable NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the AAM community to supplement the existing efforts in the industry, focusing on understanding the viewpoints of a diverse group of stakeholders and an understanding of the ecosystem as a whole.
NASA will host periodic virtual working group meetings to facilitate community engagement and information related to the AAM ecosystem. Working group registrants will be added to the distribution list and informed of all meeting times. For more information and to register to participate, visit nari.arc.nasa.gov/aam-portal/rfi/.
As a participant, MacTiernan, who also serves on the board of numerous non-profits and has three decades of service as a mechanic at American Airlines (see his bio on the Leadership page), will have the opportunity to closely collaborate with NASA and other government organizations in discussions relating to standards, policies, and operationalization of AAM.
