Sidley is representing American Airlines in its investment in ZeroAvia, a leader in hydrogen-electric, zero-emission aviation. In addition to the investment, a memorandum of understanding provides American the opportunity to order up to 100 engines from ZeroAvia’s hydrogen-electric powertrain development program. The engines are intended to power regional jet aircraft with zero emissions.
This investment showcases another action on American’s path to achieve its aggressive climate goals, including achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.
The Sidley team was led by partner Bart Biggers, with support from partners Atman Shukla, Rob Carlson, and Lauren Grau, and included associates Nick DeAngelis, Jackson Long, and Collin Marshall.
