Overview and opportunities
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of aviation, akin to the advent of the jet age, and the race is on to create a new generation of truly sustainable aircraft. Backed by the UK government, FlyZero is a one-of-a-kind research project aiming to revolutionise the future of commercial air travel by making zero-carbon emission aviation possible by the end of the decade. As a strategic research project we are bringing together expertise from across the UK on an initial 12-month programme to investigate the design challenges, manufacturing demands and market opportunity of a zero-carbon emission future for aviation.

FlyZero is led by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) which is at the heart of UK aerospace R&T. Working collaboratively across the UK aerospace sector and beyond, the Institute sets the national technology strategy to reflect the sector’s vision and ambition. The ATI Programme is a joint government and industry commitment to invest £3.9 billion in research to 2026. In addition to the ATI Programme and FlyZero, the Institute also supports the supply chain through NATEP and aerospace start-ups through the ATI Boeing Accelerator.
