The discussions begin with global climate objectives and seek to develop a shared understanding of the challenges faced by the global aviation research community.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The focal point of expert debates is Advanced Air Mobility and its implications for environmental sustainability, safety, and integration with other modes of transportation, with a vision for a multi-modal transportation service.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The event started on Tuesday, October 17th, and will span four days. The first three days take place at the Darwin Dohrn Museum in Naples, with the direct support of the Anton Dohrn Zoological Station.
