The UK government, Coventry City Council and Hyundai Motor Group have partnered with An urban air port, The London-based aerospace company that is developing the infrastructure for future urban air mobility, in a construction project One flying, The world’s first operational center for Autonomous electric flying vehicles Vertical take off landing (eVTOL).
For the less optimistic, urban air travel is still decades away. However, Advances in electric propulsion, autonomous aviation technology, and 5G communication networks will soon produce commercial drone services, thus It will add a new dimension to urban transportation in the future with passenger drones.
Urban Air Port was named the winner of the Future aviation challenge To the British Executive, Prof. Award designed to support the aviation infrastructure and systems for the next generation of electric and autonomous aerial vehicles. Airline Emission-free infrastructure development, Is completely independent.

Simulation One flying It will be the world’s first “pop-up” urban airport For electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL), including air taxis and cargo drones, it is set to open in Coventry later this year.
The The main center Electric aircraft One flying 60% smaller than a traditional airstrip, Which is the most comparable current infrastructure. With innovative modular construction, The sites can be installed in a matter of days, emit zero net carbon emissions and can operate entirely off the gridAccording to the company, which means that The main center Urban Airport doesn’t always have to rely on a suitable network connection, which opens up potential sites for development.

“Cars need roads, trains need rails, and planes need airports. You will need EVTOLs Urban air portsRicky Sandhu, founder and CEO of the infrastructure construction company, explained.
“More than a hundred years ago, the first commercial flight in history took off, creating the modern world connected by air,” he added. Improving connectivity in all of our cities, and increasing productivity It will help the UK take the lead in a new clean world economy. ”
