Airbus introduced a passenger plane of the future, like a ship from Star wars

The European company Airbus is one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world and makes a great contribution to the development of aviation. As you know, aviation technology heavily pollute the air, so many companies are developing planes with electric motors. In 2019, Airbus already that the motor may well be set on a small aircraft, but that's to equip their passenger liners still very difficult. However, to reduce the amount of harmful emissions by reducing fuel consumption than the Airbus and engaged in the project Maveric. As part of the Airshow in Singapore, the manufacturer introduced a demonstration model of passenger aircraft, which not only consumes less energy, but also provides people more comfort. The manufacturer has achieved this by making the body of the aircraft more streamlined.

Journalists of the American edition believes that the new Airbus is strongly reminiscent of a spaceship from "Star wars." New really much different from existing passenger planes, because between his body and wings no sharp transition. On the contrary, it is very smooth and the fuselage and wings are one-piece. This scheme is design is known as a Blended wing body (BWB), but in the Russian technical literature referred to as the "blended wing" or "lifting fuselage".

On developing such planes was conceived by many manufacturers, and the Dutch company even showed a project

At the air show in Singapore was shown only a prototype of the aircraft with a 2-meter long and 3.2-meter wingspan. His trial began in June 2019 and will last at least until summer 2020. The final version of the aircraft will be much greater, and flying passengers in it can sit not only in the middle of the cabin, but literally inside the wings themselves. Engineers believe that, with the increase of the area of the saloons passengers will be able to sit on chairs as comfortably as possible. Only here there is a likelihood that sitting in the wings people will be very nauseas. How the company will solve this problem, it is not yet clear.

In the photos you can see that the prototype no Windows. So it may be that, instead, the company will deliver to the cabin displays to show everything that happens outside the plane.

The Main advantage of the new building of the plane is considered that due to the smooth form, he will be less reluctant to oncoming air. It is believed that due to the good aerodynamic properties of the aircraft Maveric will consume 20% less fuel. Therefore, the plane will produce fewer air pollutants than the company and make a small contribution to the protection of the environment.

Looking to the future, the developers of the aircraft believe that the new form of the aircraft will make it easier to improve it. For example, the company will be able to test new types of propulsion systems to change the interior so that passengers were as comfortable as possible. In General, the existing technique, it is high time to change corps and salons, which at the moment is slowly happening. In 2019 even Railways company showed the new .

When it is created the final passenger of the aircraft Airbus Maveric, is still unknown. But it may well be that in ten years we'll be flying on such aircraft.
