A new project from ZeroAvia and Alaska Airlines
May 2, 2023
Alaska Airlines has made a Bombardier Q400 (Dash 8-400)) available to ZeroAvia for conversion to hydrogen electric propulsion. The aircraft will be equipped with proton exchange membrane fuel cells powered by hydrogen stored as a cryogenic liquid and a 1.8 MW propulsion system, i.e. two "HyperCore" engine modules, high-power permanent magnetic flux radial machines (900 kW) and high speed (20,000 rpm).
