Compared with the A300, this new short to medium haul widebody has a cabin eleven frames shorter, typically seating between 210 and 234 passengers, and certifiable up to 265. Overall aircraft length is 46.7m. 153ft. 1in. ie. some seven metres 22ft. 11in. shorter than that of the A300. The A310...
Machine tool efficiency is of paramount importance in the aerospace industry because of the high manufacturing standards demanded. Also, a particular characteristic of airframe components is the need very often to machine quite complex components from the solid. As a result, it is not unusual to...
The use of fibre optics for long haul telecommunication applications is well established in both systems design and extensive field installation trials. The main advantage of fibre optics in this particular area are low loss and high transmission bandwidth capabilities.
An aircraft wing perforated with millions of tiny holes is being studied at McDonnell Douglas Corporation as a way to reduce fuel consumption substantially on longrange flights by the next decade.
