Pioneering hydrogen flight

We were the first to fly small experimental planes using our extremely lightweight fuel cell systems. We have since gained a significant experience on optimised integration configurations, going into propulsion as well as refueling infrastructure on the ground.

2006

We powered one of the very first hydrogen electric flights in the world, taking off in a California desert not too far from Los Angeles back in 2006. The same teams involved in the design of the aircraft then set a world distance record in 2007

2007

One year later, we put together a first high-performance 1kW fuel cell system was developed to fit a jet-wing configuration capable of flying 200km/h. This video came out showing the flight in the Swiss Alps, led by a consortium team under a DLR program. 

2012

Powering an aircraft could soon be a sustainable endeavor. Fuel cell technologies explored by Boeing use a fusion of hydrogen and oxygen to help power electric aircraft.
