The AAT is characterized by its autonomous flight that enables the transfer of people to their destination without human intervention or the need for a flight license. The AAT is powered   with 18 rotors that ensure safe flying and landing in the event of any rotor failure. The trial operation and certification program will begin this year and continue for five years. The RTA will cooperate with the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority to develop the world's first AAT legislative and operational guidelines.

Driverless vehicle technology in Dubai intends to convert 25% of the city's mass transit system to autonomous driving. This technology is a problem solver for Dubai's traffic as the Emirate's population increases each year. The ATT will reduce congestions in the major areas Downtown, JBR and more. Autonomous air vehicles seek to enhance Dubai's resident happiness and strengthen the Emirate's global reputation as the most advanced city in the world.
