In this webinar, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)’s Innovation Hub will provide overviews on:

  • The UK’s regulatory environment around commercial aviation, with a short overview of a post-Brexit, post-EASA landscape;
  • Current trends & forecasts around the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) / Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) markets in the UK; and
  • The Innovation Hub’s work and ongoing projects (such as their Regulatory Sandbox and innovation clusters).
  • Boeing NeXt will also discuss some of their work with the Innovation Hub, such as enabling beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations as part of the CAA’s Innovation Sandbox, which is intended to help foster collaboration between industry and regulators to shape future regulation of the aviation and travel industries in the UK. The presentation shared will introduce Boeing’s vision for the future mobility ecosystem, and their global and collaborative approach to testing innovative aviation solutions in a safe environment under real-world conditions.

This event is intended to give you an idea of present and future opportunities for your company, as well as UK innovation trends to take note of, and how they are being regulated for success in an ever-evolving global aerospace industry.
