Our solutions

We’re driving the development of electrified aircraft technology in all its forms, exploring every path to an electric future to help civil aviation achieve net zero CO2 by 2050.

Electric motor

More electric systems

We’re replacing traditional hydraulic and pneumatic systems with more electric systems, and in turn reducing engine bleed air and its resulting fuel consumption. Our work began more than 20 years ago on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and today we continue to manufacture the only bleed-less electric environmental control system in service for the Boeing 787.

Hybrid electric propulsion

We’re combining fuel-burning engines with electric motors and batteries, burning less fuel for a positive economic and environmental impact.
