New US Jumbo Jet Concept - Revolutionary

  SE Aeronautics' New SE 200 Could Revolutionize Flying                                             Source:  SE Aeronautics Short Takeoff & Landing Potential SE Aeronautics of Alabama is developing a revolutionary new, tri-wing commercial jumbo jet concept.  The SE 200 has a very disruptive and innovative design approach.  Besides the tri-wings, there are a double tail fin and two engines on the back of the plane.  It can carry 264 passengers at a speed of nearly Mach 1, all the while using 70% less fuel than a similar sized jet, greatly reducing the greenhouse gas emissions. Highly Advanced Technology and Many Advantages Some aviation experts believe that the SE 200 could revolutionize the aviation industry.  The prototype is configured with a high lift wing design which enables short distance takeoffs and landings.  That would increase the number of smaller airports that the aircraft could service.  The vehicle has a range of 10,560 miles and can hit top speeds of Mach .90 or

New Jumbo Jet Using 70% Less Fuel

  Tri-Wing, Greener Flying                                                                           Source:  SE Aeronautics SE Aeronautics SE200 Aircraft jet fuel emissions are among the top contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions and Climate change.  Now, from Alabama-based SE Aeronautics comes a tri-wing jumbo jet prototype, the SE 200, that cuts jet fuel consumption by 70% and reduces CO2 emissions by 80%.  The design and performance of this green flying prototype are radically different from other aircraft now in use. Super Efficient Passenger Jet The SE 200 is an ultra wide plane capable of carrying more than 264 passengers.  It is a tri-wing design with a double tail fin and two engines mounted on the rear of the plane.  It flies at subsonic speeds with a top speed of Mach .90 or 690 mph.  The projected range of the aircraft is 10,560 miles.  SE Aeronautics calls it a super efficient passenger jet.  The aircraft has a great deal of versatility.  It is capable of use in s
