IATR 34th Annual (Virtual) 
Conference: “Regulatory Reboot!”  
December 13th-17th, 2021

The 2021 IATR 5th Annual Regulator Bootcamp

The IATR's Boot Camp Training has now become a regular part of our conferences, and will be back for an all-day virtual session on Monday, December 13th. The boot camp is a great way to meet new and experienced regulators, who start with the basics on a topic. Assume you just took on a position as a regulator and know little to nothing about a topic - well that is the place the boot camp comes in handy. Our trainers assume you do not know the terminology, and we begin instruction with those pedagogical precepts in mind. This year’s bootcamp, which involves basic regulatory training for beginners, will address the following topics from the ground-up so to speak:

IATR Bootcamp Training Session 101: 
Urban Air Mobility 
Monday, Dec. 13, 2021 | 10:00am - 11:30am ET

This session will explain the technology behind flying taxis, its evolution and history, as well as current regulations and issues. The role of the ground transportation regulator and city planners will be discussed, given the need for transport to and from take-off locations. Pilot programs and full program implementation and plans from around the world will be portrayed and discussed.

Registration & Sponsorship Open Now!

In terms of the format of the conference, I have consulted with the Chairs of our various IATR committees and task forces and reviewed the post-conference surveys completed by IATR 2020 virtual conference attendees. The feedback received is that any future virtual conferences should be condensed in time - and not spread out over weeks or months. Mindful of the need for regulators and sponsors to conduct other business, with many who have already returned to workplaces as well, we will slightly change the format to space out the sessions a little more – to allow for more breaks and timeframes for attendees to conduct other business. We believe this will facilitate the learning experience, increase attendance and reduce stress for many of our members. But for the most part, we will be sticking with the format from last year’s conference, which worked very well, and the conference program can be accessed here. If you would like to attend, registration is now open for regulators and associate (industry) members, click here, and our sponsor menu can be accessed here.

Let’s all “Reboot” together, by attending IATR’s second-ever virtual conference, and just like new software upgrades, develop new and enhanced regulatory ideas that provide better compatibility with other regulatory modes, devices, and policy applications.
