Future Flight briefing event and networking events
The competition briefing for the Future Flight Challenge will take place in Birmingham followed by networking events in London and Glasgow
UK Research and Innovation‚Äôs Future Flight Challenge was formerly launched on 24 August by the prime minister marking the start of a new wave of innovation for UK-based businesses working in all aspects of aviation.
The Future Flight Challenge aims to revolutionise the way people, goods and services fly, positioning the UK as a world leader in aviation products and markets worth over $675bn to 2050.
The Future Flight Challenge will develop an aviation system to accelerate the acceptance of these innovative air vehicles into service and therefore define how people, goods and services will be delivered in the years to come.
This will increase UK manufacturing opportunities, increase mobility, improve connectivity and congestion and pave the way for a reduced carbon footprint for aviation globally. UK Government will invest up to ¬£125m over the next four years to support these ambitions.
