FLYZERO
 

FlyZero is the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) project to enable the UK to lead a revolution in zero-carbon air travel.

FlyZero will pull together expertise from across the UK supply chain and universities in an initial 12-month programme to look at the design challenges and market opportunity of potential zero-emission aircraft concepts.

The project was launched on 20 July 2020 by Alok Sharma, Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Bringing together around 100 experts from industry and academia, the areas covered by the strategic research project will include determining the technical and commercial viability of a future zero-carbon emission aircraft design; technology and industrialisation roadmaps; and assessments of the sustainability issues, the UK industrial capability, and the market and economics aspects.

The ATI is hosting a webinar to introduce the FlyZero project at 1100-1200 on Thursday 13th August. To register to attend, please visit https://www.crowdcast.io/e/flyzero.

The Challenge

Aviation must radically reduce its emissions if it is to help meet commitments from the UK and other countries to eradicate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.  It is the top priority for the aerospace industry, an industry in which the UK currently excels. A race is underway to create radically more efficient aircraft.

 


 

The FlyZero Programme

The ATI has worked with industry, academia, and members of the Aerospace Growth Partnership to draw up a 12-month programme for FlyZero.
