Civil aviation companies are studying frontiers that were once reserved for science fiction, from flying taxis to hypersonic and suborbital flights. The U.S. government is also taking part by adopting next-generation technologies for air traffic control and testing emerging technologies, like low-boom supersonic aircraft. But realizing the next wave of aviation innovation will require both the public and private sector to work together to address common challenges and answer pressing questions. What technological and regulatory barriers stand in the way of supersonic flight? How can the federal government support additional aviation innovation?  How can regulators test and integrate new technologies while ensuring public safety?

Please join ITIF for an expert panel discussion on the future of the U.S. aerospace industry, new aviation technologies, and the policies necessary to protect the safety of the national airspace system while ensuring innovation in aerospace continues apace.
