A safer way to travel by plane would be possible thanks to the ability to dispose of passenger cabins in the event of damage to turbines or engines. Aeronautical engineers have proposed a new option to protect the lives of air passengers: create a Detachable cabin that can be removed in case of accidents.
Aircraft accident technology: This will be the aircraft of the future.This project envisions the possibility that the cabin has the installation of a parachute that works by separating itself from the wings and the engine of the plane. Similarly, the new system is expected to have rubber tubes at the bottom that inflate to cushion the impact of reeds on the ground or keep users afloat in the water.
On the other hand, in the design ofaircraft of the futurea place is contemplated to store the luggage of the passengers, for which, in case of accidents, there will be no loss. It is a positive precedent for users, but it will not be lucrative for airlines, since the new cabin would have a smaller number of seats, that is to say that theFuture aircraft will have fewer seats.
The creator of this project is the Ukrainian engineer Vladimir Tatarenko, who has been designing the design of the cabin for about three years. The visionary, in an interview quoted on the LiveLeak website, said while surviving a plane crash is possible and engineers around the world focus on making planes safer, they will never be able to eliminate the human factor.
Vladimir worked in a production plant of the company that builds the Kiev aircraft and was regularly a member of the special commissions, where he had to check the accident scenes. When viewing each incident and knowing the statistics of the events, the engineer indicated People are wrong about air disasters, since around 80% of them occurred due to human error.
Engine failures, fire inside the airplane, damage to the wings, and technical problems generated by meteorological conditions or human error by pilots are the factors that endanger users and could be saved with this new system. in theaircraft of the future
However, this device would not save lives in the event that the aircraft explodes inside or is involved in rocket attacks. For its promoter, the possibility of profit for the benefit of the group is greater.
What will the planes of the future be like?
Change the construction materials of theaircraft of the future It will be the main objective, as light artifacts are needed to allow parachutes to work. In this sense, Kevlar is considered a valid option: an artificial fiber, light, robust and highly resistant to heat.
Despite this, the greatest obstacle to the conception ofaircraft of the futureis the cost. Tatarenko himself indicated that in order to make suitable escape capsules for commercial exploitation, about 1 million US dollars would be needed.
Until now, businessmen in the sector have shown no interest in the invention, given that in addition to reducing the number of seats in theaircraft of the future, fuel consumption statistics also increase, generating a decline in profits for large airlines.
The following video is a digital animation that explains how the new airplane cabin system would work. The audiovisual is published on Vladimir Tatarenko's personal YouTube account.
