If You Owned An Aircraft Industry ( Means An Industry That Makes Or Manufactures Aircraft ) What Would You DO? :airplane:



_________________________________________________________________


What Would I Do Is.....

I Would Ask Scientists to come out some design of aircraft or develop Luxorious or Supersonic Aircraft That Can be Powered By Natural Energy So that Global Warming Can Be Limited.

Long range aircraft are a necessity for me, in addition takeoff performance is also important for me, as a result, all must be able to take off in 7000 feet or less.

I'd design a jet that used the best parts. Like the PS-90A engines and General Electric and Rolls Royce engines.

if i had owned an aircraft factory/industry i think i would have designed planes after what the airlines required. A plane that can be used both on short haul and on long haul, that can take off from short runnways and land on short runnways and stuff like that. i would most likely have produced tri jets since i like the look of them. but of course i would never know 100% what i would have done since i dont own a industry so therfore i just have to use my imagination :)

I'd attempt to make propfan aircraft in the 0-200 seat market, with a range of up to 1400 miles.
Also, a replacement for the 757 in 2+2+2 configuration, range of 5000 miles with an ER model being 8000 miles. If propfans are successful, would use those on this as well.

Weren't trijets simply a way of getting around twin engine restrictions?

Also, wouldn't your 45 degree thing put huge stress on the airframe and require a lot more additional reinforcement and therefore weight?

Well the ETOPS restrictions aren't bad at all anymore. The only route I can think of being majorly affect by them now is IAH-AKL on the 788 which has to take a ~200 mile detour, thus completely making 3 engine aircraft useless on pretty much all flights. :P

Balance is generally not a major effect. Also, Australasia-South America are ETOPS restricted. A very small market. Also, there arent many short runways left in the world

Build a 14 engined, 5 deck plane (6 engines under the wings, six on the sides, one on top (like trijets) and one prop at the front for good luck) ;) .

I agree with what you say regarding the prop-fan A320/737 competitor and the 757 replacement... But why 2-2-2?
Surely it would be a bugger to load/unload and also it would require two rounds of the drinks trolley, compared to just 1 round with a single aisle. But more importantly, having two aisles is empty space!!! You see 2-2-2 is just as many seats abreast as 3-3... yet 2-2-2 requires an extra aisle... That extra aisle will mean the cabin will have to be made wider, thus, making the whole fuselage less aerodynamic. It would definitely be a hard sell :giggle:

Well, If I Own Boeing...

Re-do the 707-320C, one of the bests aircraft I know, with modern technology and fuel flow. Is a small aircraft that can be used in Long-Haul, I love this (Like A319-100LR)

Douglas DC-13

Exactly like the DC-3, but two versions (one with the standard 30 seats and other with 60) and the technology and security of the ATR's. Also, range up to 1200 miles



If I own Embraer...


Embraer 130

Turboprop aircraft, 60 Y seats (2x2), to compete with the ATR's. Range: Up to 1200 miles

Embraer 180

Two-engine jet, max 380 Y seats (in comfortable 3-class layout, 6 1x1x1 First-class seats, 36 2X2X2 Business seats and 300 2X4X2 Y seats) and range up to 8000 miles

I would create an aircraft that would serve the 200-seat market and replace the aging 767-200 and A310. The aircraft would be a twin-turbofan widebody, powered exclusively by GE. It's going to have a range of up to 7500 nm to fly long and thin routes.
