What is the point of an eco-friendly plane if there is no eco-friendly HQ
Currently the Faradair main office is based in the old Roman town Cirencester in Gloucestershire. ‘Corinium’ as it was known in Roman times, was a hub for trade and commerce. In more modern times, the Gloucestershire region has a long heritage in the aviation industry, sadly most of this heritage is now lost, with very few aircraft manufacturers left in the UK, we intend to reverse this trend. Our future Eco-friendly HQ will be an example of clean, green, manufacturing capability.
We believe there is no point making an eco-friendly aircraft if the production facility relies on fossil fuel and takes power that could be used for households. Therefore Faradair will build a state-of-the-art production facility that utilises latest technologies for harvesting energy and water and will ensure the facility has a minimum impact on the local community.
Discussions are currently being held with potential airfield sites including the potential to build an entirely new low carbon/noise aviation facility on former MOD facilities, effectively creating a ‘green aviation’ technology park. However due to many former airfields now being considered as ‘brownfield’ sites, the challenge from new housing is becoming an ever greater problem to securing the right long term future home.
