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.
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.
- 186 passenger capacity
- 800 mile range
- 20% quieter
- 20% lower fuel costs
- Distributed motors
- High aspect ratio wings
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.
→ Seattle: 679 miles
→ Las Vegas: 414 miles
→ Atlanta: 696 miles
→ Washington D.C.: 213 miles
→ Chicago: 740 miles
→ Minneapolis: 334 miles
→ Washington D.C.: 612 miles
→ Atlanta.: 606 miles
The future of propulsion
Wright's electric motors and motor controllers are industry breakthroughs in their performance, weight, and size.
- 75% lower weight
- 50% smaller size
- 2x more powerful powertrain
- 2x higher torque density
- Adaptable to multiple fuel sources
- Adaptable to technology outside of aviation
A vision for sustainable aviation
Starting with the Wright 1, our short-haul passenger planes will transform flights under 800 miles for the future. Over the next two decades, our technology will eliminate emissions, lower fuel costs, and optimize the travel experience.Our Mission →
