Future Flight: The Rise of Advanced Air Mobility
With companies and investors committing billions to the emerging Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market, there are many opportunities and challenges ahead for the sector.
Pilot Mental Health: Mental and Behavioral Health Is a Very Special Challenge for Aviation
Piloting, by its very nature, is stressful. We rocket into the air in high-performance vehicles made of lightweight material, flying at hundreds of miles per hour at altitudes where our time of useful consciousness is measured in seconds if we spring a leak.
Space and STEM: Exploration Requires Talented New Recruits
How often do you check your smartphone for messages or look something up on the internet? How often do you use a map application? How often do you look at…
Aviation Data Sharing: Crucial to Improved Safety
Several factors play a critical role in aviation’s goal of continuous safety improvement. One of the most important is the sharing of incident data. This practice, which originated in simple…
Fixed-Wing Electric Cargo Delivery: An Enabler for Broader Electric Aircraft Use?
Progress toward certification and operation of new battery-powered aircraft continues at an encouraging pace. Industry leaders are engaged and so are regulators.
Grateful to Play a Small Role in the Evolution of Our Industry
The approach of the holiday season commonly prompts reflection on the past year as well as a look forward. That certainly is true for us at Global Aerospace. And while that work continues through November and December, we also pause a bit near the year’s end to consider what it is we really do.

However, in a world in which we are increasingly time- and cost-sensitive, as well as environmentally conscious, change is afoot.
Urban Air Mobility Ground Infrastructure
When considering the challenges of realizing the goal of flying taxis and personal commuting aircraft, thoughts of airspace management, aircraft certification and operational safety may immediately spring to mind.
