“The future has arrived – it’s just not evenly distributed yet."

- William Gibson

Across the globe startups and aviation giants alike are working feverishly to bring about a revolution in aviation - small, electric aircraft that can travel point to point, unlocking decades old visions for the next age of transportation. Prototype demonstrations are already happening, and the question has changed from “if” to “when” we will see wide application of Urban Air Mobility (UAM).

But who is guiding this revolution, and by extension what will it look like? If UAM is the future of transportation, how should platforms be structured to make them work for everyone? How are inclusion and access ensured for the future? And what will it take to ensure that future is accessible and inclusive to all people?


Sustainable Aviation Symposium 2019 (SAS) asks critical questions about equity in the future of air transit, through a holistic examination of technology, platforms, urbanism and other emerging topics. SAS will explore the ideas that will shape UAM and the global transition to accessible, safe, electric aviation for all.

The University of California Institute for Transportation Studies develops leading-edge innovations influencing movement of people and goods and advancing sustainability, economic health, and quality of life.

For 70 years, the ITS has been recognized as one of the world’s leading centers for transportation research, education, and scholarship. The Institute was created in 1948 as an Organized Research Unit by the California state legislature. Today, it is the epicenter of study for all modes of transportation — from technological advances to social and environmental consequences.
