THE FIRST PRACTICAL TRUE ZERO EMISSION AVIATION POWERTRAIN

Accelerate the World's Transition to Sustainable Aviation

Our Mission

ZeroAvia enables zero emission air travel at scale, starting with 500 mile short-haul trips, at half of today’s cost.

Novel approach removes many limitations of the current zero emission programs.

Aviation accounts for over 12% of total transportation emissions, growing at the fastest rate on the way to doubling by 2050.

Released at high altitudes, aviation emissions have 2–4x the impact of comparable ground source emissions.

Further, air travel experience is progressively deteriorating

Bigger airports with larger planes mean more congestion, longer wait and higher security overhead.

Higher passenger concentration in large airport hubs results in longer last-mile travel to final destination.

 
Solution Requires Smaller Aircraft with Clean, Low-Cost Operations

To solve these problems, we need to move to zero-emission aircraft, flying more point-to-point, utilizing existing smaller airports.

For example, in California, small airports provide 25 times more landing points, as only 10 out of 250 CA airports are used today for scheduled transport.

 
ZeroAvia Provides the Most Practical Solution

Our novel zero-emission powertrain has 75% lower fuel and maintenance costs, resulting in up to 50% total trip cost reduction.

It delivers 300–500 mile zero emission missions in a 10–20 seat fixed wing aircraft to utilize existing infrastructure and simplify regulatory issues
