Information for investors looking for opportunities within hydrogen aviation, zero-emissions, disruptive technologies and sustainability. 

Cranfield Aerospace Solutions is developing the world’s first fully certified, zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered aircraft, and is providing an opportunity to lead the design and manufacture of new-build, 19-seater and 75-seater green aircraft..

Why CAeS?

With CAeS’ 30+ years of experience in designing and certifying complex modifications to aircraft for global OEMS such as Airbus, Boeing, Rolls-Royce and Thales, we believe that our hydrogen fuel-cell-based conversion kits for the 9-seat Britten Norman Islander aircraft will be the first zero-emissions aircraft to be certified for commercial use.

CAeS is set apart from its competitors by having whole aircraft concept design capability, and UK CAA aircraft Design Organisation (DOA), Production Organisation (POA) approvals​ for Complex Aircraft Modifications and Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (MOA) approvals.

In addition, CAeS is located at Cranfield University/Airport with access to state-of-the-art aerospace R&D and testing facilities.
