Airbus strives to inspire the latest innovations in the field of flying – and thus use the conceptual design of a "bird of grabbing".
Last week, the company premiered the design at the Royal International Air Tattoo in Austria: "A hybrid-electric, turbo-propeller airplane for regional air transport," according to the press release. Its wings and tail structure were designed to make copies of bites because of the "effective mechanics" of the birds.
This concept is precisely this – the concept. The "Bird of Prey" is supposed to give insight into how a regional plane can look in the future. It contains ingredients such as "mixed wing from hull to hull", which should reflect the arch of the eagle or the falcon.
"Our" booty bird "is designed to inspire young people and create a" wow "factor that will help them take on an exciting career in an essential sector of the aviation industry," said Martin Aston, senior chief of Airbus. in the statement. "One of the priorities of the entire industry is how to make aviation more sustainable – let's make the flying cleaner, greener and quieter than ever. From our work on the passenger plane A350 XWB we know that nature with biomimics has some of the best lessons we can learn about design. Who can not help but is inspired by such a creation? "
