The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Korea Office of Civil Aviation (KOCA) agreed to partner on future advanced air mobility (AAM) aircraft development and operations.

“Collaborating with our international partners on safely integrating these new technologies will create more efficient, sustainable and equitable transportation options,” said acting FAA administrator Billy Nolen. 

The two agencies will work together to promote the safety oversight of AAM, including airworthiness, licensing, and operations.
  
The announcement follows the FAA’s partnerships with Japan and with the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand in the National Aviation Authorities Network to harmonize our certification criteria and integration plans.
