Aircraft developer refurbishes facilities for green takeoff

Sustainable aircraft developer Cranfield Aerospace Solutions (CAeS) has unveiled a newly refurbished hanger and R&D facility to support the maintenance of hydrogen aircraft.

CAeS is currently developing hydrogen propulsion systems for aircraft manufacturer, Britten-Norman.

The company said that the changed facilities are expected to significantly reduce the building’s carbon footprint.

Paul Hutton, Chief Executive Officer of CAeS said: "This modernised hangar becomes a classroom of possibilities, where we will not only deliver the intricacies of zero emissions propulsion but also pioneer maintenance procedures for hydrogen-powered aircraft.

“Our engineers and technologists, fuelled by curiosity and a passion for sustainability, stand ready to lead the charge at the most exciting stage of our growth yet.”

CAeS hopes to deliver the first zero-emissions passenger aircraft by 2026.
