This week, the UK announced it’s on the brink of creating the world’s first designated drone corridor, to speed up trials of UAVs delivering packages. It’s significant because it has the potential to temporarily solve the conundrum of how air traffic control can safely move so many automated aircraft.
In this episode, Adam and Boo discuss how the industry will transition from pre to post coronavirus, and what the upcoming UAV revolution could look like.
They’ll also talk about why the 747 has departed the industry to tearful tributes, while the unloved A380 exits unceremoniously stage-left. Was the aircraft ever a viable idea, or just a PR push from Airbus?
Finally, they’ll ask whether hydrogen could actually power planes in 10 years, or if it’s still the stuff of wishful science fiction.
