On the sustainability front, Embraer announced a partnership agreement with GKN Aerospace to focus on hydrogen research and to explore the development of a hydrogen powered flight demonstrator.
“The imperativeness of sustainability drives research and development programmes at Embraer, and the potential development of a hydrogen flight demonstrator represents an important milestone in our technology roadmap toward the future of sustainable aviation. It is a pleasure to have GKN Aerospace as a partner in this technological journey with us,” said Luís Carlos Affonso, Senior Vice President, Engineering & Technological Development at Embraer.
