A350 MSN1 Flight Lab

A flying laboratory for future technologies

How Airbus Flightlab takes flight testing to the next level

Airbus unveils the three zero-emission concept aircraft known as ZEROe. These concepts include turbofan, turboprop, and blended-wing body configurations that are powered by hydrogen propulsion. All ZEROe concepts are hydrogen-hybrid aircraft  

Why hydrogen is the most promising zero-emission technology

Glenn Llewellyn deciphers hydrogen’s incredible potential

The radical design includes six removable fuel-cell turboprop motors that Airbus engineers are studying to determine how scalable the “pod” configuration could be to a large commercial aircraft.   

These pods could provide a blueprint for future hydrogen aircraft
