British-American hydrogen aircraft manufacturer ZeroAvia has identified applications for hydrogen-electric, zero-emission propulsion for regional jet aircraft. The hydrogen-electric CRJ aircraft would be equipped with two ZeroAvia regional jet engines (derivatives of the ZA2000 engine class) to match the existing performance, and ZeroAvia analysis suggests it could support up to 60 passengers with a range of… Read more »

ZeroAvia, a specialist in hydrogen-electric aviation, has secured £12.3 million ($16.3 million) in government funding to deliver a hydrogen-electric aircraft to the market by 2023. The UK Government grant for the HyFlyer II project will finance ZeroAvia’s development of a certifiable hydrogen-electric powertrain. The goal is to demonstrate a 19-seat aircraft with a 350-mile flight… Read more »
ZeroAvia says it has successfully completed a test flight of a commercial-scale electrified aircraft. New Atlas reports that the company’s HyFlyer, featuring the latest version of its hybrid hydrogen/electric powertrain, recently took off from Cranfield Airport in Bedfordshire, UK as part of a program to develop large, long-range, zero-emission aircraft. While companies such as Magnix… Read more »
Electric aviation is in its infancy—as far as we know, no e-planes are yet carrying passengers in commercial service. However, several firms are rapidly developing electric aircraft—Rolls Royce, Bye Aerospace, Heart Aerospace and Eviation are developing battery-electric planes, while ZeroAvia is placing its bet on hydrogen fuel cells. California-based Wright Electric is taking what appears… Read more »
Q&A with ZeroAvia CEO Passenger cars are well on their way to going electric, and the path to a big market share for heavy-duty EVs such as buses and delivery trucks is becoming clearer. However, aviation remains a new frontier for zero emissions. There are several new powertrain options, and none has yet proven itself… Read more »
