More wings, less emissions, this is the SEA Aeronautics jumbo jet SE200, for 264 passengers

In essence, technology is driving noticeable changes in commercial aircraft to make them more sustainable, although in terms of shape, the truth is that the wide structures of these aircraft have not changed much, at least until today. SE Flyings It offers us a jumbo jet with more wings than conventional, but yes, much lower emissions.

It is about the prototype SE200 That takes a subversive approach to every metric of design and performance. And it comes with three wings and a double rear fin, in addition to two engines installed in the rear.

The giant plane is capable of holding only 264 passengers, far less than the Airbus A380, the world’s largest commercial airliner, which is 73 meters long and accommodates 853 passengers.

What is surprising is the reduction in CO2 emissions this huge aircraft proposes to do by about 80 percent.

What will the SE Aeronautics SE200 jumbo jet look like?

The SE200 jumbo jet from SE Aeronautics has an expected range of 10,560 miles, with a top speed of Mach 90 (690.5 mph), which is greater than other aircraft in its class.

Its high lift wing design gives it short takeoff and landing, adding to the number of smaller airports it can reach.

In addition, these wings are designed thinner and more aerodynamically, because the fuel is no longer stored in them, but instead goes to the bladder in the upper part of the fuselage.

Moreover, SE Aeronautics refers to its integrated monocoque chassis as a breakthrough in performance and safety. The company notes that aircraft manufacturers attach large parts called “barrels” to maximize production, but will build a sturdy one-piece airframe for the aircraft.

The monocoque design and composite materials will make the aircraft more efficient: built in less than half the time and with a service life of up to 50 years.

The engines in the rear of the jumbo have a combined thrust of 64,000 pounds and we’ve already talked about 264 passenger capacity, but it’s time to reaffirm up to 70 percent of the fuel efficiency compared to a similar-sized plane and assuming lower emissions 80-90% carbon per seat-kilometer.

This giant aircraft will outperform literally all aircraft in its class. We’re talking range, speed, payload, safety, cost-per-hour, mass, mile-per-gallon (PMPG), and tons-mile-per-gallon (TMPG). Not only will we outperform all of these metrics, but we will also be able to build these aircraft in less than half the time it would normally take to build an aircraft of its size, ”the company explained on its website.
