Future aircraft

On the path towards cleaner, more sustainable flight

The aviation industry has committed to carbon-neutral growth starting from 2020. But this ambitious target cannot be achieved using existing aircraft technologies. Alternative propulsion systems and energy sources, and innovative solutions to existing challenges, will help us to significantly reduce CO2 emissions in future aircraft.



This helicopter demonstrator has the potential to reach speeds of 400 Km/h, which is significantly faster than standard helicopters. The advanced design also means it will be 10-15% more efficient than standard helicopters.
