said Dr Simon Weeks, Chief Technology Officer, ATI. “This exciting ATI funded project is the next step in an effort to develop a commercial zero emissions hydrogen fuel cell powered commercial aircraft in the UK.”

The project will culminate in a 250-300 nautical mile flight from the Orkney Islands in Scotland. ZeroAvia is working with the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) for the development of the infrastructure needed to fuel the aircraft with green hydrogen, at Cranfield and on Orkney. Fuel cell engineering company Intelligent Energy is optimising its proprietary high-power evaporatively cooled fuel cell technology for aviation use.
