New aircraft are getting innovative new engine technologies, the same can now be said for wings that are getting new unique designs that were never seen before.
The new Tri-wing jumbo jet introduced by SE Aeronautics could reduce fuel consumption by 70 percent, a drastic improvement in performance. While the new tri-wing design aids for longer flights, it also means that the aircraft would require lesser space for taking into the air and landing to the ground.
Wide-body planes have remained in action for many decades now concerning the commercial airlines, however, the new design by SE aeronautics comes changing the conventional two wing aircraft design for decreased carbon emissions and a longer run on a single refuel.
Commercial airlines account for tons of emissions produced each year, hence it has been marked as a major concern in the past several decades. However, if the new tri-wing design aircraft meets the company’s claims and also becomes a widely used aircraft of the future, it would be a great step in the right direction for meeting decreased emissions targets for environmental sustainability.
Along with the never-before-seen tri-wing design, the aircraft also packs a double tail fin and two rear engines, taking an entirely uncommon approach to every aspect of commercial aircraft.
The new tri-wing design aircraft could increase features concerning the seating capacity as well. SE aeronautics in the unveiling of the new aircraft stated that it would be good to seat up to 264 passengers and would complete a flight covering 10,500 miles on a single refuel. Moreover, the new design also brings in faster-paced flight compared to other conventionally-used commercial aircraft and would go up to the speeds of 690 mph. All-in-all, the tri-wing aircraft by SE aeronautics would deliver fast flights along with far-better fuel usage, decreasing the emissions caused by commercial airlines at large.
Such a drastic enhanced performance is promised due to the focus on a thinner and more aerodynamic design. The commercial airline’s wings are so that along with aiding for the lift, they are also the source where the fuel is contained. “This is usually where fuselages break apart in an accident,” said SE Aeronautics to the Robb Report. “SE will build a single-piece, tough composite fuselage.”
The new design aircraft by SE Aeronautics changes that by storing the fuel on a bladder atop the fuselage that has allowed the engineers to construct sleeker design wings for a better lift and landing, hence making it that it could function from airports with shorter runways, increasing the usability of the aircraft at large.
Despite all the cool new features increasing the aircraft productivity in flight, the CEO, Tyler Mathew is convinced that “the jewel in the crown is SE Aeronautic’s ability to get that fuel consumption rate down by 70 percent.”
This is a unique but inspiring time for engineers to experiment with huge industry-shifting ideas for extraordinary commercial aeronautics solutions.
