The UK Government is providing £125m of funding to the Future Flight Challenge, which will enable the UK to build, use and export new, greener ways of flying through advances in electric and autonomous flight technology. We have also supported the Civil Aviation Authority establish an Innovation Hub to engage with innovative aviation companies throughout the United Kingdom.

The UK Government will consult on Aviation and Climate Change later this year.
