Airbus presents 2035 vision with three hydrogen powered electric aircraft

Airbus thinks that by 2035, the first zero-emission commercial aircraft could be flying, and they presented three concepts as a stepping stone towards that vision. They are exploring hydrogen propulsion under the working name ZEROe, which they believe can cut aircraft emissions by up to 50%. Glenn Llewellyn, Airbus Vice-President of Zero-Emission Aircraft, said that five years ago, the company didn’t even consider hydrogen propulsion to be a viable technology to cut emissions. The use of the hydrogen propulsion in other transport areas however has produced data that shows its potential for aviation as well. As recently as five years…
