Hydrogen-electric powertrain developer H2FLY, Japan Airlines (JAL) and JAL Engineering (JALEC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to research and evaluate the feasibility of hydrogen-electric aviation in Japan. Focusing on the evaluating the efficacy of hydrogen-powered fixed-wing aircraft (initially targeting regional routes), the study will evaluate the powertrain requirements needed for varying distances of flights and aircraft size, as well as technical specifications according to JAL’s commercial operations. H2FLY – who successfully completed the world’s first piloted flight of a liquid hydrogen-powered electric aircraft two months ago – will subsequently test and validate the findings of the study. “Through this
