The conceptual 'Flying-V' aircraft is a futuristic vision of what could be done to enhance airplane fleets and make them more efficient in more ways than one. The aircraft features the same wingspan and seating capacity as the Airbus A350, but has a length that's only half to increase the overall aerodynamic design. This design also works to reduce the plane's fuel consumption by as much as 20% to make it a more efficient option for the future of air travel.
The conceptual 'Flying-V' aircraft is the design work of TU Delft student Justus Benad for their thesis project and also puts a focus on a different kind of cabin design. This includes space for up to 314 passengers and four seating options.
