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.

FlyZero Work Packages

Find out how your specialist expertise can support the UK’s project to realise zero-carbon emission commercial flight though subcontracting opportunities open now.


Join the FlyZero Team

We are looking for secondees or individual applicants to join the FlyZero team in a range of leadership, technical, strategy, commercial and project management roles. The Candidates’ Pack explains the recruitment process and the terms & conditions.


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.
