Airbus is working on the latest inspiration in flight innovation – and with a conceptual design "bird of prey" to do so.
The company premieres the design in & # 39; s United Kingdom at & # 39; An Air International Air Tattoo Air Show last week: "A hybrid electric, turbo-propeller airplane for regional air transport," according to a press release. The wings and tail structure were designed to copy you from a bullet-hole due to efficient mechanics & # 39; of birds.
This concept is exactly that – a concept. The "bird of prey" is intended to provide insight into how a regional aircraft may look like in the future. It has parts such as "a blended wing-to-hull joint" intended to reflect the bow of an eagle or falcon.
"Us" Bird of Prey & # 39; is designed to be an inspiration for young people and to create a & # 39; factor that & # 39; t help them look at a contemplative career in & "The crucial air defense sector," said Martin Aston, a senior manager at Airbus, in a statement. "One of the whole sector priorities is how to make aviation more sustainable – flying cleaner, greener and quieter than ever before. We know of our work on an A350 XWB passenger ship that has nature through biomimicry some of the best lessons have you & # 39; we can learn about design. Who can't help but are inspired by such a creation? "
