Developments in air mobility are closely followed by a large and global community of professionals. Most of the public buzz is about the potential for manned air mobility such as air taxis adding to human micro-mobility, with far less discussion of unmanned air mobility solutions and drones. However, it is clear that there is enormous scope for such unmanned vehicles, with many use cases to be explored.

The word “quarantine” is derived from the Italian word quarantena, the 40-day isolation period demanded during the Middle Ages before a ship was permitted to enter port, in order  to protect the port city from disease. Humans are social animals, and as we endure our 40 days of self-isolation and lockdown across the globe, we are starting to feel stressed and to long for some short to mid-term perspectives.
