Project XCelerate

We’re leading the way in establishing the UK’s first commercial drone zone.

Paving the way for commercial drone flights

Paving the way for commercial drone flights

We’re clearing a safe path for commercial drones to support businesses and drive innovation.

  • Commercial drone zone

    We’re overcoming the challenge of flying drones beyond the visual line of sight, making the skies safe for drones to fly in unrestricted airspace.
  • Flight trials

    In 2022, we’re carrying out trials in the 8km-long drone zone to show how business, healthcare and emergency services can make the most of safe airspace.
  • New opportunities

    Our research is paving the way for the future of drone flight, safely opening up the skies and providing a framework for subsequent drone zones.
