ACRP Insight Event--On-Demand Aviation Services fro Passengers and Goods

Aviation is beginning to see a trend similar to that experienced in ground transportation, namely, the use of transportation network companies (TNCs) offering on-demand transportation services for passengers and goods. Yet air transportation is different from ground transportation from both a technology and regulatory perspective, and since the trend is in its infancy, little information is available for formal research. Airport industry practitioners and other stakeholders would benefit from a convening event to discuss how such trends could impact business and personal aviation and how airports might position themselves to be ready for these trends.  The objective of this effort is to conduct an Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Insight Event to foster dialog among thought leaders with respect to the “Uberization” of aviation. The outcomes of the Insight Event will be a proceedings document, and potential ideas to be added in IdeaHub for future ACRP research.
