The airplanes we have known so far could change and the three-wing model may not be that far off.
By adding the pollution caused by each plane with the number of flights that exist today, a result that is unaffordable for the planet is obtained. This is an industry that continues to grow and hopes to revitalize after the coronavirus pandemic, but many things will have to change in the future.
Among the ideas being worked on in the industry, are the three-wing aircraft that SE Aeronautics wants to develop and that, according to El Confidencial, they can reduce fuel consumption by up to 70% and CO2 emissions by 80%.
This new design has the peculiarity of using the airplane wings as storage space, not for the deposit, as usual, and also the motor is installed at the rear of the airplane. It is also planned to build the fuselage in one piece to give greater security and to find a particularly powerful ventilation system.
Regarding the speed that can be achieved, the company talks about 1,111 km / h and the capacity to carry 264 passengers for at least 16,900 kilometers. Although the manufacture of different models of various sizes would be valued.
The company wants to start testing this year. Times are long and they are not expected to enter service with passengers and fixed routes for at least two decades. Even so, flights can also be an inspiration for other projects in this sector and lead to new plans.
This is not a particularly novel idea in many respects, but everything that plans to combat the environmental impact caused by flights can be taken as an initiative of interest, especially if we talk about such interesting figures.
