A hub for future vehicles like air taxis and delivery drones is opening to the public for demonstrations.
Over at least a month the Air-One mini-airport site in Coventry will host demonstrator flights and outline how to control aircraft.
The operator said it was “the starting gun for a new age of transport”.
Urban-Air Port added air taxis were yet to receive government approval, but a life-sized model of one being built would be on show on the ground.
It said the Coventry initiative was “a world-first demonstration of a fully-operational hub for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles – such as air taxis – and autonomous cargo drones”.
