Aircraft without a tail. From the drawings to the first prototype.


In the near future the global aviation can see the first real design aircraft without a tail. A similar statement was made by the International Air Transport Association, and more specifically, it states that the first actual working models of airplanes without tail will be operated by the 2025 year, that is, literally in 10 years.



What is the reason that aircraft without a tail It can replace conventional air machines, which are used at the moment? In the first place at similar sizes, can significantly increase the capacity airliners - up-20 25 percent. Besides that, aircraft without a tail It will have a better performance, and indeed the likelihood that hitting turbulence, the plane can fall off at the tail unit, completely disappear. It should also pay attention to the fact that some simplification of the very design of the aircraft, which will increase the rate of production of aircraft at lower cost materials.

How aircraft without a tail Will be controlled in the air? The question is really interesting, but believe me, the solution to this problem has been thoroughly thought out and is simple in implementation. At the point of the plane where the tail unit was previously installed, two additional rotary engines will be placed, which, if operated alternately, or even if used together, can accurately control the aircraft in a horizontal position. In addition, since in the future it is planned to sell supersonic aircraft, such engines can also be used for additional thrust.



The finished projects of the aircraft of the future have already been developed, and all that remains is to move on to their production. A typical example is the prototype developed by the aircraft manufacturer Boeing - Boeing 797, tests of which will be carried out in the very near future. Please note that the aircraft completely lacks the tail unit, and in place of the former tail there are additional engines that can operate both in the main thrust mode and in the auxiliary one.

Aircraft without a tail - This is not fiction, and the first appearance of airplanes without tail scheduled already 2016 year, and when will be held the first test of new types of flying machines.
