Studies are currently being conducted around the world to realize advanced air Mobility. Advanced Air Mobility is expected to solve various regional issues and provide people with new forms of air transportation. In this article, air travel is investigated as a significant option for improving transportation networks within and between different cities and regions in Iran, and Iran's market profile for accepting Advanced Air Mobility is investigated. Also, the challenges and issues facing Advanced Air Mobility have been studied, finally, some existing plans for use in various missions of Advanced Air Mobility and future mechanisms and plans for the realization and development of this field in Iran have been proposed.
