Engines Could Pace Boeing Middle-Market Aircraft Design
Et ça "Make Sense"
Ray Conner et Mike Delaney répondent !
Ça ressemble bougrement à des schémas publiés il y a qq années (Section elliptique possible, et dans la largeur)... et ça n'ira pas plus vite que les moteurs, donc 2025 au mieux ...
Au fait, une aile composite de 6ème génération, ça ressemble à quoi
It will have a sixth-generation composite wing, more electrical systems and advanced, high-bypass-ratio engines. It also may feature an elliptical fuselage cross-section, to provide twin-aisle capacity with single-aisle economics. However, it really also wants to be transatlantic, says Mike Delaney, VP and GM of airplane development at Boeing Commercial. That’s significantly longer than the 757 but not quite as big as a 767. The seat count wants to be between 200 and 260 to 270 max. So it is a little bit bigger than a current single-aisle but not quite as big as a 767-type aircraft.”
