How Airbus Hopes To Launch The First Zero-Emission Plane By 2035

Airbus has set itself an ambitious target to introduce the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft by 2035. There will undoubtedly be several challenges along the way. Nonetheless, the manufacturer shared details of its strategy at the Airbus Summit in Toulouse last week.

While I think this goal may be a tad lofty as for timeframe, I think that getting aircraft powered by hydrogen will be a great overall win for the environment and airlines as hydrogen has the potential to be a whole lot cheaper than jet-a and avgas for GA if hydrogen power ever gets to general aviation.

People tell me hydrogen can explode yeah so can petrol lol.

indeed, all it needs is to be vaporized which isn’t that hard theoretically, I mean, it’s what is happening inside of the engine

Hydrogen, as an element, is an extremely flammable gas. They can work around this and use compounds and ions of Hydrogen though.
