£273M fund for low carbon aerospace creation

The government will give £273M to pay for low carbon aerospace creation involving solar-powered aircraft and NHS treatment drones

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng will make the statement later on today, which the government predicts will create 8.8k new vacancies.

Using electric drones to analyise hazards, move medical treatments & patrol motorways, this is one of the areas of the focal point of these new projects.

The builders say that this would not only reduce the carbon footprint of this type of work but also make the process faster, with drones not needing to wait in traffic jams.

At the beginning, 31 competition winners will share the funding between them & also a company looking to create lighter plane wings to construct ‘carbon composite’ wings.

A drone objective statement is additionally set to be uploaded today, which will show how drones could add £45bn to the economy by 2030.

“Today’s package of support will further this recovery and help the sector seize on the enormous opportunities for growth that exist as the world transitions to cleaner forms of flight, Mr Kwarteng added.

“Through funding for the latest in green technology, such as solar and hydrogen powered aircraft, and setting out our vision for the fast-growing market for commercial drones, we are once again placing the aerospace sector directly at the centre of our plans to deliver jobs and grow the economy.”

Robert Courts, Transport Minister, commented: “Integrating drones into our transport system will play a huge part in better connecting communities, from potentially delivering vital NHS treatments in isolated communities to capturing high quality aerial imaging for rescue teams.”
