The Japanese government supports the development of UAM

| |

Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said this week it has created an entirely new administration tasked with overseeing UAM preparations.

The responsibility of The Next Generation Aviation Mobility Planning Office is to plan and create regulatory and safety measures that help to govern UAM activity in Japan.

The office will examine both unmanned drones for delivery, surveillance, inspections as well as future piloted UAM air taxi and other transport services.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism plans to regularize beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations by 2023. Besides, in the same year, Japan plans to launch the first air taxi services.
