NJC.© -ZeroAvia Dornier228 - First Flight
Today, ZeroAvia made aviation history with a huge step forward for the development of zero-emission flight. The 19-seat Dornier 228 testbed aircraft took to the skies above England's Cotswolds with the leftside propeller powered by a hydrogen-electric powertrain, making this the largest aircraft flown with hydrogen-electric propulsion!
This sets ZeroAvia well on the way to meeting target of commercial flights using only hydrogen fuel cell power by 2025. It is a huge step towards a truly clean future for aviation. A big congratulations and thank you to our incredible team for their tenacious effort in making zero-emission flight a reality. In just over a year, this testbed aircraft has been retrofitted to test the hydrogen-electric engine, an enormous achievement.
The future of flight is renewable hydrogen and we're so proud to be leading the way!
