Selected for its important geographic location within the UK and its history of automobile and aerospace innovation, Coventry represents the ideal venue for showcasing the future of mobility. We’ve collaborated with local partners to ensure this project paves the way for new transportation developments as the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) industry takes flight. Join us in Coventry to celebrate this milestone achievement and envision a new era of mobility.
In partnership with Supernal, we’ve designed an immersive experience where guests can tour the Air One vertiport and learn about the promise of sustainable Advanced Air Mobility solutions.
The Event – What’s happening

“Cleaner, inter-city flight technology is vital not only to reducing emissions, but to better connecting remote communities, from small towns in the UK to isolated settlements all around the world. As we build back greener from the pandemic, initiatives like the government-backed Air One project will help us develop the infrastructure needed to make our dreams of flying taxis a reality.”
Kwasi Kwarteng – Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy of U.K.
