Connecting the wide variety of UK sectors and expertise that are fundamental to the third aviation revolution.

This interactive landscape map provides insight into the capability in the UK to support the integration of new aircraft with the digital and physical infrastructure necessary for future flight.  You can explore the map to find new collaborative partners and see the breadth of investment and expertise in the UK.

The Future Flight project needs expertise in Aerospace and Aviation, but also in a huge variety of sectors from AI and Agriculture to Materials and Medical.  The map will continue to improve and evolve over time, capturing the network as it grows.

KTN has created the map to support the Future Flight Challenge, a £125m project delivered by UK Research and Innovation.
