Wright announces launch of the Wright Spirit 100-passenger airliner for zero-emissions one-hour flights →

The first zero-emissions passenger plane for airlines

The Wright 1 is a single-aisle aircraft created for airlines that fly short to medium routes of 800 miles or less. Designed for up to 186 passengers, the Wright 1 will enter service in 2030.

Zero carbon

We are creating the most powerful and efficient electric motor in aviation, to work with any sustainable fuel source.

Low fuel costs

Cost-effective by design, the Wright 1 has a propulsion system and aerodynamic body that use up to 20% less energy than a fossil-fueled plane.

Quiet and fast takeoff

The Wright 1 generates up to 20% less noise than a fossil-fueled plane, and is designed for fast passenger unloading, loading, and takeoff.

An engineering breakthrough

The Wright 1 will be the only single-aisle, zero-emissions aircraft engineered to meet the needs of airlines, customers, and our planet.

Regional travel made sustainable

Your air travel can be fully carbon-neutral. The Wright 1 will make all short flights under 800 miles zero emissions, in the U.S. and globally.
