Help us predict the future

Date published: 18 April 2022


We’re inviting designers, manufacturers, inventors and other interested people and organisations to help us prepare for the aviation future.

To do this, we’ve released a survey calling for information about emerging technologies and other new aviation-related systems and capabilities that aren’t already on our radar.

The aim is to ensure we’re prepared and able to respond to future changes that could affect the way we regulate civil aviation.

The survey seeks information about new technologies and other capabilities you expect to see deployed into the aviation environment in the next 3-10 years. The survey is broken into the following broad topic areas: airspace, remotely piloted aircraft systems, advanced air mobility, evolved conventional operations, enabling capabilities, and high-altitude operations. 

There’s also room to include information about other technologies, systems and capabilities that don’t fit naturally in any of those categories.

If you’re not currently working on something new yourself but know someone who is, please direct them our way and encourage them to complete the survey.

It’s available through our online consultation hub and closes at midnight on Saturday 4 June.

(Please note: This survey is separate to our recent engagement with the public on our RPAS/advanced air mobility roadmap document).
