• The CAA has been engaged by UKRI to support the successful consortia of the Future Flight Challenge. We will simplify the way consortia work with the CAA and help them to identify the regulatory pathways for the demonstration of their aviation systems​.

    The Regulatory Sandbox helps consortia to maximise the regulatory readiness of their innovation before regulatory applications have started. We have produced the following guidance to explain how the Sandbox and slot system work.
