Why is there a registration fee to participate?

Registration fees are necessary to produce a high-quality and productive event and reflect the resources required to support the planning and management of the Summit. The Summit is 1.5 days of programming to educate and inform stakeholders throughout the AAM industry about the rules, regulations, and best practices for operating safely and securely in the airspace. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for registered attendees.

Do FAA employees attend the Summit and pay the same fees?

Federal laws and Presidential directives in place since Fiscal Year 2012 require agencies to control and report on the costs associated with conferences and meetings. The conference event package for the AAM Summit authorizes FAA employees to attend the event. This authorization excludes speakers and staff assigned to work on specific elements of the event. The FAA will pay a government rate for each of these employees using funding allocated to the employee’s line of business or staff offices. Employees were selected by their line of business or staff office. Employees not selected can pay the registration fee using personal funds and be in leave status.

Does anyone attend the Summit at no charge?

Everyone attending the AAM Summit must pay the registration fee. Discounted rates have been established for the following categories: Government, Military, Public Safety, and Students. Contractors do not qualify as government employees and must pay the Industry rate.
