Senator champions bipartisan aerospace legislation as Chair of key Senate aviation subcommittee

WASHINGTON –Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema introduced the Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act—bipartisan legislation that supports the development of Advanced Air Mobility Systems, creating Arizona jobs and expanding the United States’ leadership in technological development.
“Arizona leads in aerospace innovation, and our bipartisan legislation creates jobs that strengthen our national security and technological development,” said Sinema, Chair of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation Safety, Operations, and Innovation.
Sinema’s Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act establishes an intergovernmental agency working group that would develop a report to Congress on recommendations for advancing the physical and digital security, safety, infrastructure, and maturation of the Advanced Air Mobility Systems industry.
Advanced Air Mobility Systems is an emerging sector of aviation technology that will provide new capabilities and environmentally-friendly alternatives to traditional transportation modes. Arizona aerospace manufacturers worked with Sinema and support introduction of this legislation. Sinema’s Advanced Air Mobility Coordination and Leadership Act further enhances Arizona’s leadership as a testing ground for emerging vehicle technology.
