Electrification is the core of sustainable flight

Imagine a future with aircraft that consume less fuel and emit less carbon while also reducing maintenance costs. Aircraft electrification is at the center of this vision. By driving innovation in the field, Collins Aerospace is unlocking new opportunities for optimizing operations and improving sustainability.

Over the last decade, we’ve invested $3 billion in advancing our electric architecture and dedicated more than 1,000 engineering resources to developing more electric systems. Add in 70+ years of experience and no one can match our financial commitment and expertise in this space.

Our value

Our unmatched expertise in the generation and management of electrical power is leading an electric evolution in the aviation industry. Today, we’re collaborating with industry partners to drive innovations in hybrid-electric propulsion systems and embracing the latest advancements in the application of hydrogen-based technologies and sustainable aviation fuels. We know how essential this pursuit is to our future, and we know how important it is to achieve our industry-wide goal of zero emissions.

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.
