Airbus just executed the world’s first 100% sustainable aviation fuel helicopter flight

Chris Young of Interesting Engineering reports that Airbus has conducted the world’s first helicopter flight using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

The C3 Take
  • The aviation industry as a whole accounts for two percent of global emissions.
  • In March Airbus also conducted the first ever A380 flight that was powered by SAF.
  • The company has committed to be SAF certified by 2030.

“Looking further ahead, Airbus also announced zero-emissions hydrogen concept aircraft as it aims for a future of greatly reduced carbon emissions. Other companies, including Rolls-Royce, are also running SAF tests in a bid to help the aviation industry play its part in the face of catastrophic climate change.”
