fly sustainably without compromise
To enable a future where anyone can fly sustainably without compromise.
To design and manufacture hydrogen electric aircraft that do not compromise on safety, performance or cost.
Stralis was founded in 2021 to decarbonise air travel, improve passenger experience and create a world class aircraft manufacturer in Australia.
We see green hydrogen as a fundamentally clean solution that is carbon-free, lightweight and economic.
Based on our practical experience with the alternatives, Stralis is convinced that hydrogen electric propulsion is the most commercially viable, truly sustainable solution.
Due to the urgent need to decarbonise transport (IPCC), our first product will be an existing aircraft, retrofit with a novel hydrogen electric propulsion system allowing us to accelerate the transition to sustainable flight.
B1900D-HE Retrofit Product
|Max payload:||1,500 kg||(3,300 lb)|
|Range at max payload:||800 km||(432 nm)||+45min IFR|
|Max cruise speed:||500 km/h||(270 kts)||at 24,000 ft|
|Power plant:||2 x 955 kW||at 1700 rpm|
|Entry into service:||2026|
Our first product to market will modify a Beechcraft 1900D by replacing the conventional turbine engine and kerosene fuel system with our novel Hydrogen Electric Propulsion System (HEPS) and liquid hydrogen storage tank. During the modification, we will inspect and overhaul the airframe and avionics, as well as modernise the interior. Stralis intends to obtain a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for this product with CASA and the FAA.
SA-1 Clean Sheet Product
|Available seats:||approx. 45|
|Max payload:||5,000 kg||(11,000 lb)|
|Range at max payload:||3,000 km||(1620 nm)||+45min IFR|
|Max cruise speed:||580 km/h||(313 kts)|
|Entry into service:||2030|
Incorporating learnings from the B1900D-HE program and customer inputs, Stralis will design a clean sheet aircraft optimised around hydrogen electric propulsion. An objective of this program is to offer improved operating costs and scalability.
SA-2 Future Product
|Available seats:||approx. 90|
|Max payload:||10,000 kg||(22,000 lb)|
|Range at max payload:||> 7,000 km||(> 3,780 nm)||+45min IFR|
|Max cruise speed:||700 km/h||(375 kts)|
|Entry into service:||2035|
This product will expand our aircraft portfolio and allow us to maximise our impact on aviation carbon emissions. It will compete against conventional regional and narrowbody aircraft in performance and cost.
