The HY4 is a high-tech new hydrogen fuel cell aircraft that is looking to revolutionize commercial air travel by incorporating zero-emission powertrain technologies.

This particular hydrogen fuel aircraft is equipped with an array of fuel cell modules that are located near the electric motor, which is capable of offering 80 kilowatts. The cells engage with the motor during flight, while a lithium polymer battery pack offers an extra assist during take-off and climb. The end result is a completely eco-friendly hydrogen fuel cell aircraft that is capable of attaining a top speed in the region of 200 km/h, although this could be enhanced as technology evolves.

This hydrogen fuel cell aircraft shows that the future of commercial air travel can absolutely be emissions-free.
