ZeroAvia signs agreement with Textron Aviation to develop hydrogen-electric flight

ZeroAvia has entered into a non-exclusive Joint Development Agreement with Textron Aviation to support development of hydrogen-electric, zero-emission powertrains for the Cessna Grand Caravan (208B) aircraft.

ZeroAvia will obtain a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to retrofit the Grand Caravan single-engine utility turboprop with the ZA600 zero-emission powertrain, targeting commercial passenger and cargo operators.

The Cessna Grand Caravan is designed and manufactured by Textron Aviation. Its high-wing design makes it a strong candidate for mounting hydrogen fuel tanks under the wings, ensuring operators can maintain seat capacity or cargo space, while transitioning to true zero emission propulsion systems.

ZeroAvia will develop its ZA600 powertrain system for the Grand Caravan with data, engineering and certification support provided by Textron Aviation, and aims to obtain certification for the 600kW powertrain from 2025.
