The European Union has launched a new program to develop new and disruptive technologies for commercial aircraft programs that could enter service around 2035. Called Clean Aviation, the program was officially launched on December 1 and builds on the success of Clean Sky 1 and 2. EU targets technology breakthroughs with Clean Aviation.
Like Clean Sky, Clean Aviation is part of the EU’s Horizon Europe program and is a private-public partnership to get aviation to climate neutrality in 2050. The European Commission supported Clean Sky with €2.6 billion in funding, with leading partners (the key European aerospace companies) contributing with the same amount. For Clean Aviation, the EC contributes €1.7 billion and private partners €2.4 billion.
