Research from a Scottish Government sponsored project bringing together UK aerospace heavyweights shows the potential to create up to 2,500 jobs and improve mobility across the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

Project Eilean, part of the Government’s drive to become net zero by 2045, saw independent digital engineering research company, the Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS), collaborate with Rolls-Royce, Loganair, University of Strathclyde and Scottish Enterprise.

A team of digital engineering experts from CFMS researched the viability of a low emissions aircraft capable of short haul operations across Scotland’s furthest-flung regions.

By modelling a new concept that could be applied to existing aircraft, specifically the 19-seater Loganair DHC Twin Otter 400 Series, CFMS used digital analysis to assess alternative fuel sources, including electric battery, hydrogen electric, and hybrid fuel (diesel and electric).
