HY4 - 2016
Hydrogen electric passenger air travel with low noise, zero particulate matter and zero carbon dioxide emissions was already 2016 a reality.
A test campaign of 32 take off, flights and landings in 4 days prove the versatility and fast refueling capability of hydrogen propulsion systems.
H2FLY, as the main designer of hydrogen propulsion architecture is the worldwide forerunner on complete hydrogen electric powertrain for aviation.
A FIRST MILESTONE ON THE PATH TO EMISSION FREE PASSENGER FLIGHT
H2FLY – We dream, we fly
and we develop the future!
Based on H2FLY custom system architecture a redundant pressurized hydrogen storage system allows today long endurance testing and dynamic operation with refueling capacity in minutes.
In a next step, liquid hydrogen will boost the range and allow to assess the technical feasibility. Cooperative developments in EU projects are ongoing.
A specialized hydrogen fuel cell system provides electric energy for the electric motor.
Based on H2FLY safety optimized architecture, a cooperative work with multiple ballance of plant partners achieved an highly redundant propulsion and thermal management system.
The system turned out to be optimal for Air-Taxi, General Aviation and regional aircraft applications.
Refueling of hydrogen is safe and easy to handle.
In minutes, the energy for the flight mission is refueled.
From 4th of November 2020 till 20th of November 2020 the 6th generation of hydrogen powertrain made over 35 take offs, flying up to 2 hours per flight.
Our next test phase from December 2020 to May 2021 will show the full capability of our emission free powertrain.
