REVOLUTIONARY FLYING-V TO TAKE TO THE AIR IN OCTOBER

The 314 passenger Flying-V, that will burn 20 per cent less fuel than the most fuel-efficient plane available, will fly in scale prototype form later this year backed by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

The Flying V is designed for highly energy-efficient long-distance flights and its design integrates the passenger cabin, the cargo hold and the fuel tanks in the wings, creating a spectacular v-shape.

Its improved aerodynamic shape and reduced weight will mean it uses 20 per cent less fuel than the Airbus A350, today’s most advanced aircraft.

The Flying-V also provides researchers with a unique opportunity to improve passenger experience in aircraft, from the seating layout in the wings, to the design of the chairs and bathrooms.

Everything has to also be as light as possible, in order to maximise the efficiency gain the new aeroplane shape provides.
