ABSTRACT

Today, drones have evolved from the past ultra-light unmanned aerial vehicles in various sizes and power formats, and major drone-related countries such as the U.S, South Korea, Japan and China are leading the way in building human-powered manned drones or Urban Air Mobility(UAM). ‘Urban Air Mobility(UAM)’ is emerging as a three-dimensional future transportation to address urban population growth, road traffic congestion and environmental problems, with the global market expected to grow at an annual average of 30% between 2021 and 2040. Urban Aviation Mobility (UAM) is expected to be commercialized in earnest after 2030, and Korea is also trying to solve problems such as establishing related business models and developing new technologies by comprehensively considering operation safety, public convenience, and profitability by announcing K-UAM roadmap. ‘Urban Air Mobility(UAM)’ is expected to play a big role as a future eco-friendly transportation through convenience of the public and connection with existing transportation such as roads and railways by allowing minimal space to be operated without a runway. As early drones began as ultra-light unmanned aerial vehicles for military reconnaissance and have now evolved into the aircraft which can also transport passengers, ‘air safety’ will be the most important factor in its operation, this paper seeks to look at the current legal system related to urban aviation mobility and suggest a improvement plan.
