AVCP has joined both the Vertical Flight Society (VFS) Safety Committee and the General Aircraft Manufacturers Association (GAMA) VTOL Committee during recent visits to the USA for the VFS Forum75 in May and the UBER Elevate Summit in June.

Later in June AVCP has also participated in the EUROCAE/EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) eVTOL Safety Committee, which has just started to address all the safety and certification issues with the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) application. Roger Sloman is responsible for the drafting of the standards for crash-worthiness, and is defining a three-level set of certification criteria, covering all the available options:-
1) Simply relying on system redundancy alone.
2) Adding a ballistic parachute system.
3) Adding both a ballistic parachute system and retrorockets to provide a full Zero-Zero system capability.
