First public presentation of the Flying V aircraft configuration.
The Flying V - An entirely new aircraft configuration - First public presentation
Outwardly, commercial passenger aircraft have changed little since the 1960s. The conventional configuration made up of wing, fuselage and tail assembly is the state of the art.
Recent preliminary calculations show, that a new configuration called the Flying V might have a potential benefit over the conventional configuration in terms of mass and aerodynamic efficiency.
This unconventional configuration will be introduced in the talk. Also, the first successful flights of a demonstrator model will be shown.
