  1. ZeroAvia Accelerates Its U.S Hydrogen-Electric Testing
    ZeroAvia is moving full steam ahead with its testing of hydrogen-electric technologies on 19-seat Dornier DO-228 platforms. The first one has started testing and the company recently received a second DO-228 for the test program. To be clear, this testing is on the United States chapter of ZeroAvia. This company has already been working on hydrogen-electric technology in the UK with the HyFlyer II program. The ZA600 engines with the current timeline are expected to receive FAA certification in 2024.
  2. "This new project in California will allow us to use architectures from our Hyflyer II initiative, where we are working with the same aircraft, and apply those lessons as we further test and demonstrate the system across a number of different use cases," said Val Miftakhov, CEO and founder of ZeroAvia. "Ultimately, this will help us optimize our zero-emission powertrain design ahead of certification. This year we will have two demonstration aircraft flying on two continents powered by our hydrogen-electric powertrains which will further help us secure partner and customer commitments across the worldwide aviation industry." Towards the end of last year ZeroAvia cemented partnerships/collaborations with major airlines such as Alaska Air Group and United Airlines to accelerate the development of its ZA2000 engine. These airlines will invest the funding ZeroAvia need to fully develop the largest of ZeroAvia's powertrain platforms (ZA2000), capable of producing between 2,000 kW and 5,000 kW. Once this is achieved, it will be used to test propulsion on 40-80-seat platforms.
