ZeroAvia has commended the United States Congress’s passing of a five-year reauthorisation of the Federal Aviation Administration.

The bipartisan bill, which passed the US Senate on 09 May, includes provisions to greatly advance the capabilities of hydrogen aviation.

The bipartisan bill passed the U.S. Senate on May 9 by a vote of 88-4 and was passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 387-26

The bill was negotiated by committee leadership in both the House and Senate, who reconciled their versions of the bill before it’s passing in the House of Representatives.

Predominantly committing to direct the FAA toward the development of a sustainable path toward safe and efficient hydrogen-powered commercial aircraft, the bill also includes notes to support hydrogen aviation research through the FAA ASCENT programme, which adds hydrogen refuelling infrastructure to the list of eligible projects to be funded under the Airport Improvement Program.

ZeroAvia, Founder and CEO, Val Miftakhov said:

We applaud the hard work of Senators Cantwell, Cruz, Duckworth, and Moran and Representatives Sam Graves, Larsen, Garret Graves, and Cohen. The hydrogen measures in this legislation are a welcome signal that Congress supports the innovation, cost and emissions reduction, and job creation that hydrogen aviation promises.

We are eager to work with FAA and other federal agencies with a large role to play in advancing hydrogen in aviation, notably DOE, to implement these new measures.
