Clean Aviation - the European HERA project

Available online :

Environmental issues are at the heart of ISAE-SUPAERO’s Research and Educational Resources Division’s strategy.
A commitment that translates into participation in HERA, Hybrid Electric Regional Aircraft, one of Europe’s research projects into decarbonizing aviation.

Clean Aviation - the European HERA project

ISAE-SUPAERO is taking part in the European HORIZON-JU-CLEAN-AVIATION HERA project, with a budget of €35 million and 40 partners led by Italian aircraft manufacturer Leonardo.

HERA aims to identify hybrid-electric regional aircraft concepts, typically flying over distances of less than 500 kilometers and capable of addressing climate issues.

The objective is to evaluate key technologies and architectures in order to propose a range of regional-interurban transport solutions for the 2030s.

ISAE-SUPAERO is involved in studies on the overall, optimized design of the aircraft, with a particular focus on the integration of high aspect ratio wings and thermal management solutions. This activity will allow the extension of projects already carried out by the Aircraft Design and Flight Dynamics team of the Aerospace Vehicle Design and Control Department (DCAS), such as the Clean Sky U-HARWARD project.

One of the major challenges for the team is to strengthen the capabilities of the open platform for preliminary aircraft design, FAST-OAD, developed by ISAE-SUPAERO and ONERA and which will be implemented in HERA.
