A joint strategy for the industrialisation of emerging aviation technologies in the UK.

This Future of Flight action plan sets out:

  • a shared vision for 2030 to support the UK future of flight industry to become a sustainable and thriving ecosystem
  • the 5 strategic outcomes to achieve this vision: including achieving routine operations beyond the pilot’s visual line of sight (BVLOS) for drones by 2027 and delivering initial operations carrying passengers and cargo for electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOL) by 2028
  • specific actions for delivery by industry and government, including the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)

The plan was co-designed by the aviation industry and government through the Future of Flight Industry Group. It provides a balanced approach to the growth of the future of flight industry so that it benefits the UK economy, society and environment while maintaining high standards for aviation safety and security.
