With unabated growth in air transport, aging aeroplane fleets and a greater urgency for zero emission flight, there is a need for new, safe, sustainable and accessible modes of mass air transportation. The Electric Aviation Group has been conceived to drive, inform, and support the development and production of electric flight vehicles by the UK and their subsequent adoption by the worldwide market. At the Electric Aviation Group our international team of engineers are combining many years of technological innovation and expertise to lay the foundation for next paradigm shift in the aviation sector.
The hardest part of developing any paradigm shift is to accept the need for change. Recent climate related events around the World should have left no doubt of the importance of the need for aviation stakeholders to play their part in the challenge to achieve lower emissions. To do so in an environment as concerned about the safety of the individual, as it is right to be, adds complexity to the challenge.
The Electric Aviation Group has, at its core, a group of experienced individuals with a track record of driving innovation while maintaining safe operations as a prime objective. EAG’s new Hybrid-Electric Regional Aircraft (HERA) embodies innovative technologies which offer unrivalled benefits for the environment, the operator, the airframer and the passenger.
Electric Aviation Group Engineers are working on the next generation of hybrid and electric aircraft. As such our highly experienced team has registered patents for a number of leading-edge technologies. Within our consultancy service, we work with partners and corporate clients to jointly develop and register patents for innovative technological advances.
Our world-class leadership team consists of experienced professionals from some of the UK’s leading aerospace companies. The strength of the Electric Aviation Group’s engineering team is one of our greatest assets and we are proud to be one of the leading innovators in the development of electric aviation technologies.
The UK has a proud heritage and enviable worldwide reputation for advances in aviation technology. The electrification of flight has the potential to revolutionise the way we travel and transform aviation for decades to come – ensuring we can travel worldwide while maintaining a low carbon footprint. Electric Aviation Group is the founder of the Jet Zero Consortium and the convener and secretariat of the Electric Aviation All Party Parliamentary Group APPG. A new cross-party and cross-industry group aimed at promoting British skills and expertise within the electric flight sector.
The Electric Aviation Group has established the Jet Zero Consortium to
bring together the leading aviation organisations in order to build the world’s first ever hybrid electric passenger plane ensuring net-zero emissions for future flights.
The creation of the Jet Zero Consortium will help to ensure government and industry work in partnership to make net-zero carbon emissions for the aviation industry a reality.
