Somerset and Devon Win Funding Towards the Future of Flight

We have received exciting news for the South West’s aerospace sector, as £236,000 of funding has been secured, to create a Future Flight Innovation Zone (FFIZ) in Somerset and Devon. iAero is one of the key sites involved with this funding, alongside Exeter Airport. We are so glad to be a part of something, which strives for a future of safe and environmentally friendly flight.

The funding will deliver:

  • A dedicated Sand Box with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) which will allow up to 4 companies to seek support from the CAA Innovation Team to work through what they will need to do to enable certification for the testing and demonstration of their product
  • Specific CAA Innovation Advisor time to work with FFIZ to help further develop its activities
  • Funding for Future Flight Testing infrastructure to enable testing and demonstration

An exciting new future is on the horizon and we couldn’t be happier to benefit from this funding to help reach our goals.
