The EATP program was announced on 6 May 2021 as part of the Australian Government’s Digital Economy Strategy. The program will run over two years from 2021-22 to 2022-23.
The EATP program is intended to encourage adoption of emerging aviation technologies (such as drones, electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and new aviation propulsion systems) to address community needs, particularly in regional Australia. The program is also intended to contribute to the digital transformation of Australian businesses, increased business efficiency, and reduced carbon emissions through adoption of new technology and to improve a range of outcomes for regional communities.
