Airbus joins forces with Aura Aero to help certify hybrid-electric aircraft Era

Airbus will work with hybrid-electric aircraft developer Aura Aero after the two companies signed a new cooperation agreement. 

Through Airbus’ subsidiary Airbus Protect the collaboration will look to help with the certification process of Aura Aero’s regional transport 19-seater hybrid-electric aircraft named Era. 

Both companies will share their respective expertise and collaborate on safety, cybersecurity and sustainability aspects of the ERA program and its production means. 

This partnership aims to support a smooth and secure ERA certification process and production schedule. 

“This new collaboration with Airbus, the world leader in civil aviation, is not only a true mark of confidence in the work of the AURA AERO teams but is also of course an extra guarantee of success for the ERA program, with which we will decarbonize regional aviation as soon as 2030,” Jérémy Caussade, CEO of Aura Aero, said.  

Airbus said in a statement on May 28, 2024, that the collaboration will also give Airbus Protect the opportunity to “expand its expertise in new technologies such as hybrid propulsion and all-electric systems, as well as in the general aviation regulatory framework”. 

“Working with AURA AERO demonstrates the capability of the Airbus Protect team to help companies across the aviation industry to manage risks at every level, not only dealing with safety and cybersecurity challenges but also sustainability aspects and contributing to the decarbonisation of regional aviation,” Thierry Racaud, Airbus Protect CEO, added. 

Airbus Protect brings together the company’s expertise in cybersecurity, safety, and sustainability-related services.
