Inside Bombardier’s EcoJet

The blended wing aircraft concept offers a glimpse into the future of green private aviation.

Bombardier’s engineering teams have been given the freedom to explore a wide range of technologies that might further the company's quest to drive carbon out of air transport. The eye-catching blended wing design of its EcoJet technology demonstrator models may also prove to be a template for business jets that could run on hydrogen and other new propulsion systems. Incremental reductions in carbon emissions might even come sooner than expected as proven new technologies are introduced to Bombardier’s family of private aircraft. BJT sister website interviewed Steve McCullough, Bombardier's vice president of engineering and chief of aircraft design and development, about the new concept.
