AURA AERO and Airbus Protect signed a cooperation agreement in view of the certification of ERA, the next regional transport 19-seater hybrid-electric aircraft developed by AURA AERO. Both companies will share their respective expertise and collaborate on safety, cybersecurity and sustainability aspects of the ERA programme and its production means. This partnership aims to support a smooth and secure ERA certification process and production schedule. It is also an opportunity for Airbus Protect to expand its expertise in new technologies such as hybrid propulsion and all-electric systems, as well as in the general aviation regulatory framework (CS-23).

Jérémy Caussade, CEO of AURA AERO commented: "This new collaboration with Airbus, the world leader in civil aviation, is not only a true mark of confidence in the work of the AURA AERO teams but is also of course an extra guarantee of success for the ERA program, with which we will decarbonize regional aviation as soon as 2030". 

Thierry Racaud, Airbus Protect CEO, stated: “Working with AURA AERO demonstrates the capability of the Airbus Protect team to help companies across the aviation industry to manage risks at every level, not only dealing with safety and cybersecurity challenges but also sustainability aspects and contributing to the decarbonisation of regional aviation.”
