Pushing the boundaries with sustainable technologies

GKN Aerospace is innovating to support a new generation of aircraft producing no emissions at all. New electric aircraft at the smaller end all the way up to hydrogen-electric propulsion and ultimately hydrogen combustion. All of those ingredients are going to play a role on the path to net zero aviation.
