UKRI recognizes the importance of shared good practice and is investing in the Future Flight Challenge to accelerate air mobility. We're partnering with them, and working closely with the CAA and industry to deliver a dedicated standards programme.
Case StudyTransport & Mobility
Making the future of flight safe and sustainable
New air mobility technologies and airspace usage are untapped opportunities. Standards can support innovation, safe trialling and commercialization.
Partnering with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and industry
Helping UK innovators fly high
New forms of electric, hydrogen and uncrewed air vehicles, such as drones and electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOL), signal huge potential for economic growth.
Safe development, trialling and integration of these technologies into our airspace is fundamental to realizing their potential.
Future flight standards will be needed to support safe trials and demonstrations of new classes of air vehicles and accelerate the commercialization and industrialization of the sector.
Mapping a greener and safer future for aviation innovation
The Future Flight Standards Programme, backed by UKRI, supports accelerated innovation, safe trialling of air mobility technologies, and UK leadership.
This includes the identification, prioritization and creation of consensus-based standards, an interactive landscape, and a standards roadmap to address gaps. The roadmap also forms a key part of the UK’s Future of Flight strategy deployment plan.
An online Future Flight Standards Hub underpins the wider programme through emerging best practice, knowledge sharing, and standards support.
