Future Aircraft Concepts

Designing the future

The future of aviation must have a lower impact. It means lower emissions, lower noise levels and lower fuel consumption. To achieve our goals, we’re exploring a wide range of bold but viable aircraft designs in our Energia concepts– reimagining and conceptualizing everything from the aircraft’s power source to the shape of the airframe – all to achieve the industry-wide goal of net carbon zero by 2050.


Our Energia project is exploring a range of sustainable concepts to carry up to 50 passengers. This project is considering a number of energy sources, propulsion architectures and airframe layouts to reduce our carbon emissions by 50% starting from 2030 – a key step in our goal to be net carbon neutral by 2050.


Combining a mix of technologies, hybrid-electric propulsion enables us to harvest the benefits from maximizing thermal and electric engines synergies.

Hydrogen is a highly promising area in our journey to achieve zero emission flight – enabling us to generate thrust while reducing carbon emissions to zero. Hydrogen fuel cells have the potential to either run as a single power source or as a hybrid with gas turbines or batteries.

Energia H2 Gas Turbine

Dual-fuel enables us to power a gas turbine with two different fuel sources (SAF or Hydrogen), to maximize operational flexibility and reduce aircraft weight. Using a modified gas turbine, adapted to these new fuel sources, we can increase range and passengers capacity.

Propelling Sustainability

We’re building a new generation of turboprop aircraft – the most advanced ever available in the market. These new turboprops will be designed to fly in the busy short-haul up to 150 seat segment, vastly reducing this sector’s carbon emissions.

New Turboprop Features

  • 100% compatible with sustainable aviation fuels
  • Full fly-by-wire capability
  • State of the art health monitoring
  • Designed to facilitate the integration with future hydrogen propulsion technologies
  • Designed to support single pilot operations
  • Built to be the most cost-efficient solution for short haul operators
