Special Issue in Aerospace: Integrated Airborne Urban Mobility: A Multidisciplinary View
Air transportation is enabled by a complex of interacting socio-technical systems that works 24/7 worldwide. Thanks to systematic learning from incidents and accidents, commercial air transport has reached a remarkably high level of safety. Upcoming changes to this complex system are only allowed if the high safety level will be maintained. Prominent types of upcoming changes are: (1) commercial use of aircraft that have fewer or no pilots on board; (2) taking advantage of AI technology; (3) changing roles played by human decision makers. Often, combinations of these prominent types of upcoming changes apply and to a variety of safety-critical processes, i.e., from airline operational control and fleet maintenance to urban air mobility and air traffic management. These upcoming safety challenges also require novel regulation regarding safety criteria and safety assessment methods. Organizations such as ICAO, EASA and FAA are developing such regulations while supporting research is ongoing. This Special Issue is dedicated to research papers that address any of these upcoming safety challenges in aviation.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
