SE Aeronautics: Announce Launch of their new Widebody Airliner Concept.
SE Aeronautics who specialize in sustainable air travel technology, announced their new widebody airliner concept. This 100% monocoque moulded widebody airliner is a new generation of aircraft. The company say that its technological improvements turn the corner on efficiency, sustainability, safety, comfort and operating cost.
The company points out that Aircraft manufacturers have been using the same aircraft design for the past 60 years, with few exceptions.
"Our innovative technology and new aircraft design will lower fuel consumption by 70% and lower CO2 emissions by 80% as measured by per seat kilometre. The innovative design is a more efficient, light-tri wing configuration that greatly improves lift over drag, resulting in short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities and extremely long flights. The construction is all-composite, molded in one tough, safer piece. We also incorporated super thin, long wings and complete streamlining from the nose to the tail. We did it all,"
says Lloyd Weaver, Chief Engineer, SE Aeronautics.
SE Aeronautics developed a new "once-through" air feed ventilation system that never recirculates air in the cabin, dramatically reducing the risk of exposure from other infected passengers. Also, the concept includes a new "tilting" seat design, which they say creates a comfortable experience that economy passengers have yet to experience.
The compamy claim that what it describes as a disruptive new design is also expected to double the lifespan of an aircraft while reducing overall block hour cost by half when compared to other aircraft its size. With an emphasis on safety, the design is made of one solid-moulded piece of fuselage that is often stronger than existing aircraft. The fuel is stored in self-sealing bladders on top of the fuselage. The plane floats in the event of an emergency when landing over water.
SE Aeronautics patent-pending technology has culminated into the SE200. This mid-market widebody aircraft will carry up to 264 passengers and function as a light-weight regional or long-range airliner a non-stop range of 10,560 miles.
"This aircraft will be the most practical, profitable and permanent solution to the grossly underperforming airliner technology of today. Our manufacturing efficiency will allow us to produce our aircraft in significantly less time than the current traditional method. But the jewel in the crown is really our ability to get that fuel consumption rate down by 70%. We are going to revolutionize the industry,"
says Tyler Mathews, CEO, SE Aeronautics.
