There are various R&D funding programmes that can help support electric aviation, such as the Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge (£80 million), ATI Programme (government investment of £1.95 billion), Future Flight Challenge (£125 million) and Faraday Challenge (£274 million). These programmes also support a broad range of other electric or aerospace-related technologies.
