carbon offsetting

Aviation is a pillar of the French economy. The past few years, the aviation industry had to offer new ideas to meet the challenges of its time. Aviation has been notorious for its carbon impact on climate change. Nowadays, aviation is believed to represent 2% of GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. But what are the projects to meet these new challenges? What are the private jets of the future ? Discover the top 10 innovative projects for the private jet of the future. 


Electric aircrafts :




Alice is an Israeli electric aircraft project. The aircraft is suitable for 9 passengers and is fully electric. Recently Alice made its first flight: an 8-minute flight at 3,500 m altitude. Alice is a project of Eviation Aircraft and opens a great perspective for the future of electric aircraft and business aviation.


This revolutionary step will lead to innovation in sustainable air transport, and will shape both passenger and cargo travel in the future. “said Aviation CEO Gregory Davis.


Read more about the project in our article on Alice.


City Airbus


As with the AAM (Advanced Aerial Mobility), this Airbus project could become part of the history of our civilisation and the way we travel. This project aims to fly during the 2024 Olympics. The City Airbus project, from aeronautics giant Airbus, is a fully electric aircraft that can carry 4 passengers and go at a speed of 120 km/h.

Announced in 2015, the aircraft already has a successor, called the City Airbus NextGen. Its ambition is to develop more and more electric travel solutions and to win the future market share of electric aeronautics, which will soon reach mass consumption.




The eVTOL is a type of aircraft whose specificity is vertical take-off and landing. This type of aircraft is more and more popular in the electric aircraft industry, particularly thanks to Airbus and the project mentioned above: City Airbus. These aircraft are designed to live in the world of the future and to be completely electric. These aircraft are part of the AAM or advanced air mobility.


Pipistrel Velis electro


This is the first certified electric aircraft in Europe. The Velis Electro is a two-seater aircraft designed for pilot training. The Pipistrel Velis Electro can be operated commercially and is fully approved for pilot training. The company plans to deliver more than 30 units this year to customers in seven countries.




This Toulouse-based company is a manufacturer of electric regional aircraft for business and private aviation, air cargo and commercial aviation. Aura Aero offers a wide range of electric aircrafts for all uses and to create several models of electric aircraft.


Hydrogen powered private jets


Beyond aero 


Beyond aero is the first aeronautical aircraft to base its energy on hydrogen. A few years ago, French President Emmanuel Macron announced he wanted the first hydrogen-powered aircraft for the future of French aviation. Beyond aero carried this project out, and created the first hydrogen-powered aircraft. This project was founded by Eloa Guillotin, an aviation enthusiast wishing to pursue her passion and to respect environmental values.


Airbus and its ZEROe aircraft programme

Aircraft manufacturer Airbus wants create hydrogen-powered aircrafts only, towards CO2 emission neutral by 2035.

By 2025, the aircraft manufacturer is setting up a system to power one of the four aircraft engines with hydrogen. According to the aircraft manufacturer, the project “defines the specifications of the hydrogen propulsion system, will supervise the flight tests and will provide the A380 with a test bench that will enable the hydrogen engine to be tested in the cruise phase”.

The other four engines under the wings are still operating normally during the hydrogen engine test phases.


Hybrid private jets




Voltaero is a company that aims to develop the aircraft of tomorrow. The company has chosen to design a model that can be used for general aviation and all types of activity, but especially for passenger transport.

Their main prototype is the cassio propulsion. Their model offers a multitude of options.

For short take-offs and landings, completely electric propulsion.
For short-haul and regional flights, a light hybrid propulsion system
For medium-haul regional flights, a heavy hybrid drive


E-Fan X


The E-Fan X project is a joint project between three well-known companies, Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Siemens. The aim of their project is to create a hybrid electric aircraft for passenger transport. This collaboration is a way to train future engineers in the construction of electric aircraft and to make their construction commonplace. This is a real tour de force for these manufacturers and the best way to make electric powered air planes a reality.



Cessna 337 skymaster hybrid


The Cessna 337 skymaster is not normally built as an electric aircraft. However, the company Ampaire, decided to change the model into a hybrid-electric aircraft, in order to carry out commercial flights. This modification reveals the possibility of doing things differently for this type of aircraft and in short-haul aviation.


Despite the trend of jet bashing, the private jet industry has a promising future in the years to come. Inventors of the aeronautics industry are once again showing that they can adapt to the challenges of today and anticipate those of tomorrow.
