Cities and regions with an airport in their territory face very specific challenges. Coming up is new one: unmanned aircraft, specially cargo one. We can not close our eyes in front of this new situation as it has been the case with other revolutions in “micro-mobility”, therefore ARC is leading common positions to be undertaken by policy makers dealing with the future reality.
