UK design, test and validation ecosystems to enable hydrogen and electric powered flight.

As part of its ongoing consultation process, the ATI Fly Zero team has partnered with WEAF to hold a collaborative workshop focused on the following :-

 

Objectives

  • To identify and prioritise regionally based ecosystems to address the technical systems, whole aircraft and airport, test (verification and validation) challenges in developing hydrogen and electric powered aircraft.
  • To identify proposals / options for providing building this infrastructure in the UK.

The event will be jointly hosted by the West of England Aerospace Forum and by the Aerospace Technology Institute.

 

Agenda

13:00-13:30 Introductions – Colin Turner, WEAF CEO & Mark Pacey, Chief Technologist FlyZero

13:30-14:15 Stakeholder presentations

14:15-15:30 Round table discussion

15:30-16:30 Open discussion – questions from the audience

 

Background

The FlyZero project – led by the UK’s Aerospace Technology Institute – is working to develop roadmaps for technology bricks critical to realising zero carbon emission commercial flight.

A key challenge in the coming years will be testing the new technological systems, aircraft and airport infrastructure that are critical to realising zero-carbon emissions hydrogen and electric powered flight.

The event will involve an outline of the Fly Zero project and key stakeholder inputs followed by a roundtable discussion. The final session will involve an open floor discussion.

This event will convene representatives from across the UK to discuss what capabilities the UK should invest in.

The event will be jointly hosted by the West of England Aerospace Forum and by the Aerospace Technology Institute.

WEAF is the leading Trade Association cover the South West Aerospace and Advanced Engineering Community.

About FlyZero

Led by the Aerospace Technology Institute and backed by the UK government FlyZero is a one-of-a-kind research project aiming to realise zero-carbon emission commercial aviation by the end of the decade.

The intensive 12-month strategic research programme is bringing experts together from across the UK to conduct a detailed and holistic study of the design challenges, manufacturing demands, operational requirements and market opportunity of potential zero-carbon emission aircraft concepts.

By creating these aircraft concepts alongside industrial roadmaps, the economic case and a sustainability assessment, FlyZero is setting out to demonstrate how the intensive development and early adoption of advanced technologies will enable us to realise zero-carbon emission commercial aviation by 2030.

FlyZero will shape the future of global aviation with the intention of gearing up the UK to stand at the forefront of sustainable flight in design, manufacture, technology and skills for years to come.
