Coventry, UK, is set to become home to the world’s first new energy airport for electric drones and flying cars. The innovative project, known as Urban Air Port, is a collaboration between Urban Air Port Limited and several leading technology firms, including Hyundai Motor Group and Coventry City Council. The new airport aims to revolutionize transportation by providing a network of green, sustainable, and smart airport infrastructure that can be used by a wide range of air vehicles.

The Urban AirPort is a compact modular structure that can be installed almost anywhere, making it an ideal solution for cities where space is at a premium. The airport features a fully autonomous charging and landing system that can recharge an electric vehicle in just a few minutes. The airport’s design also incorporates a sophisticated air traffic management system that allows multiple aircraft to use the facility at the same time safely.

One of the primary advantages of Urban AirPort is its flexibility. The airport can be easily moved and installed in different locations as needed, providing a quick and affordable solution for cities looking to develop their air transportation infrastructure. The airport’s modular design also means that it can be scaled up or down depending on demand, making it suitable for a range of applications from delivery drones to electric flying taxis.

The new airport will have a range of benefits, including reducing congestion on roads and providing a more sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation option. The airport will also help to support the growth of the electric vehicle industry by providing a network of charging stations that can be used by a range of vehicles, from electric cars to drones.

The Urban AirPort will be powered by renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power, making it a truly green infrastructure project. The airport will also incorporate the latest smart technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), to optimize its operations and improve efficiency.

Coventry was chosen as the location for the world’s first new energy airport due to its central location and its strong history of innovation in the transportation industry. The city is home to several leading automotive companies, including Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin, as well as world-class universities and research centers.

The new energy airport is just one of several innovative transportation projects that are being developed in Coventry. The city is also home to the UK’s first 5G-enabled road, which is being used to test autonomous vehicles and connected car technology. These initiatives are part of Coventry’s wider plans to become a smart city and a leader in sustainable transportation.

The Urban Air Port project has already attracted significant interest from investors and potential partners. Hyundai Motor Group has invested in the project and is also working on developing its own electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) air taxi. Other companies, including Honeywell and Microsoft, have also expressed an interest in the project and are exploring potential partnerships with Urban Air Port Limited.

The Urban Air Port in Coventry, UK, is set to revolutionize transportation by providing a green, sustainable, and smart airport infrastructure that can be used by a wide range of air vehicles. The airport’s modular design and flexibility make it an ideal solution for cities looking to develop their air transportation infrastructure quickly and affordably. The project is a testament to Coventry’s innovation and commitment to sustainable transportation and is likely to attract significant interest from investors and potential partners.

30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
