Accelerate the environmental transition of the aviation sector
Air transport’s environmental transition is essential to allow the sector to continue to develop and survive.
Air transport emissions account for a significant share (around 3%) of global CO2 emissions. Without action, in the midst of other sectors which are all in transition, this share will mechanically increase. Already singled out for its impact on the environment and the noise it causes, the aviation industry must work actively to make the transition.
To address these challenges, numerous projects for “light” aircraft, ranging from 2 to 19 seats, equipped with new propulsion systems, have emerged worldwide in recent years. Various technologies are being explored to develop hybrid, electric, and hydrogen-powered aircraft. These different systems offer several advantages:
- Zero carbon emissions during operation
- Quieter flights
- Lower operational costs in terms of maintenance and fuel
- Ease of operation, and more
