Coventry Urban airport

Coventry Urban airport

 

The world’s first urban airport specifically for cargo drones and “flying cars” (vertical take-off and landing vehicles) is to open in Coventry later this year, as part of its UK City of Culture celebrations. The airport, known as Air One, is only temporary: it will be used to demonstrate how air-taxis and the like would function in built-up environments; but the firm behind it hopes eventually to create a permanent facility in Coventry – and to roll out the concept to cities worldwide. The project was awarded a £1.2m government grant, and is also being backed by Hyundai.
