Why is this important now?

As the world adapts to the new normal, in the wake of COVID-19, we realise that the climate emergency urgently needs addressing to avert an even bigger global disaster. Flight numbers are already returning to normal levels – adding to the global carbon emissions.

Commercial air travel has a very high carbon footprint – but also has a huge role to play in business, trade, culture, education, as well as our leisure and happiness. The Freedom Flight Prize doesn’t believe there needs to be a compromise of having to accept a high carbon footprint for getting to travel. The Prize recognises that the technologies to power flights based truly on sustainable renewable energy are within our grasps...
What's the Prize?

First to complete the Freedom Flight will earn a place in aviation history. The winning team will also take the Prize Fund, anticipated to be in £million's by the time the challenge is met.
