WASHINGTON, D.C.: To support future aircraft development and operations, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau are set to partner on advanced air mobility certifications and operations.

With this, the two countries will formalize ongoing discussions on certifying and validating new aircraft, production, air worthiness, operations, and personnel licensing.

“The FAA and the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau have enjoyed a long and strong working relationship, and that will extend into this new era of aviation,” said Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen. “Close collaboration with our international partners is critical to successfully and safely integrating these new technologies.”

The announcement follows the FAA’s partnerships with the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand in the National Aviation Authorities Network to join certification and integration plans.

Airlines and others are looking to develop transport services using battery-powered aircraft that can take off and land vertically to ferry travelers to airports or on short trips between cities, allowing them to avoid traffic congestion.
