FlyZero

FlyZero is the Aerospace Technology Institute project aiming to realise zero-carbon emission commercial aviation by 2030.

Discover the FlyZero findings

The ATI’s FlyZero project has set out a revolutionary vision for the future of aviation where a new generation of aircraft powered by liquid hydrogen keeps businesses, cultures, families and nations connected without the carbon footprint.

Funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the project FlyZero began in early 2021 as an intensive research project investigating zero-carbon emission commercial flight. The independent study brought together experts from across the UK to assess the design challenges, manufacturing demands, operational requirements and market opportunity of potential zero-carbon emission aircraft concepts.

FlyZero has identified six key technology bricks which require development at pace to unlock liquid hydrogen flight together with the enabling technologies, a sustainability assessment, operational and infrastructure requirements and economic analysis.
