These airplanes could revolutionize aeronautics. NASA, Boeing, Airbus... launch themselves in development of aeronautical concepts for the next several decades.
Who knows? Maybe in 2025, you will fly on this latest concept generation conceived by the team of engineers of Boeing.
In this new concept presented to NASA by Lockheed Martin in 2010, the engineers put a unique reactor in the tail of the device, just above the level of the wings.
The Massachussetts Institute of Technology unveiled this new aeronautical concept: "Double Bubble" D8. This airplane is intended for commercial flights. It will fly to Mach 0.74 (906 mph) and be able to transport 180 passengers. It’s to enter in service between 2030 and 2035.
This small plane will be able accomodate 20 passengers. In contrast to the other planes of this capacity, it is a lot lighter and more aerodynamic, which reduces the consumption of fuel and the noise levels.
A team of scientists from Northrop Grumman Systems perfected a state-of-the-art commercial airplane, the Efficient Silent Low Emissions Commercial Transportation or HIGH-CLASS. This airplane has no revolutionary design but, looking at it closer, it presents composite materials ultralégers in ceramic and a lot of nanotechnologies. The HIGH-CLASS one was conceived to make less possible noise in flying to Mach 0.75 (918 mph). It is intended to carry 120 passengers.
The Extremist Subsonic Green Aircraft Research (SUGAR), Volt presents the concept to have a propulsion system technology that uses a gas turbine and a battery.
Lockheed Martin Corporation presented a supersonic, almost unbelievable, concept for an airplane. The goal of this project is to construct an airplane able to fly above the continents while diminishing the level of the sonic booms.
The Boeing company also has a project for a supersonic airplane, called "icon-it". This project strives for a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
With the series D, it is the last airplane in the model PLACEMENT project. This is intended for intercontinental flights and can carry more than 350 passengers.
This NASA concept is not proposed for a conventional airplane. This solar sail will use the luminous energy as fuel and will beat the "wings" or ripple propel itself forward.
This ‘flying saucer’ was created by Etnel Straatsma of the technological university of Delft (in the Netherlands) for Greener Air Travel. This atypical airplane is intened to make only 50% or less carbon dioxide per passenger and per traversed miles that current airplanes.
Icon Aircraft is a specialized corporation in the conception of amphibious airplanes. Their latest project, Icon A5, is able to take off just as well on land as on water.
The aircraft ‘ML 866’ is exceptional by its capacity 1,500. It is also able to take off and land vertically and to remain in stationary flight during a long period. It flies to a speed of 220 km/hour at an average altitude of 2,500 Meters.
The Airbus company engineers competed with ingenuity to perfect their airplane of 2050. All the specialists have worked on the concept to produce an airplane that consumes less fuel, offers maximum comfort, and produces less noise.
This completely crazy concept goes right out of the spirit of the designer Luigi Colani for Japan Airlines. It is very doubtful that in 2025, such an airplane will see the light of day
