AeroDelft, a student team based in the Netherlands has announced on social media that it has signed a partnership agreement with Airbus to work on its Project Phoenix. “Working side by side with Europe’s largest aircraft manufacturer is a vital step in our mission of proving and promoting hydrogen as an alternative to conventional fuels in aviation” the team says before adding “A few weeks ago we welcomed Rob W. Postma, Guido Schartz and Amal Tourabi to our workshop where we had a brief kick-off meeting, followed by a workshop tour and signing ceremony”
“We are determined to make climate neutral aviation a reality and believe hydrogen is a very promising way to do so. We are thrilled to see that AeroDelft and a whole new generation of aerospace students share the same ambition. What AeroDelft has achieved so far is quite impressive and we need to join forces with everyone out there willing to put their brain and energy into the biggest challenge our aviation industry is facing – but also the most exciting one: zero-emission flight,” said Rob Postma, CEO of Airbus Netherlands.
