Boeing 787 Dreamliner
The Dreamliner Boeing 787 – is a family of advanced aircraft, “Boeing – Civil Aircraft” units that provide comfort and economic indicators of the large wide-bodied craft market medium-scale aircraft. Boeing 787 model features unique performance and economic efficiency.
Boeing 787 family includes two versions, which differ from one another passenger capacity and range. Boeing 787-8 is capable of carrying 210 – 250 passengers over a distance of 14 200 to 15 200 km, and the 787-9 – 250 – 290 passengers over a distance of 14 800 to 15 750 km.
The aircraft development group involved the world’s largest aerospace companies under the supervision of specialists “Boeing” company. Final assembly is carried out at the factory in Everett, NY. Washington, United States.
With the ability to fly at distances that are only long-haul aircraft, Boeing 787 aircraft is superior in its class in terms of fuel efficiency. This in turn reduces the negative impact on the environment.
787 Dreamliner consumes 20% less fuel than today’s airplanes of comparable class in the flight conditions. He is also able to fly at a speed that develop the fastest wide-bodied aircraft to date – 0.85 M. Airlines will be able to carry it over the payload, and passengers will appreciate the refined interior design, as well as the most comfortable level of humidity in the cabin.
The unique characteristics of this aircraft were made possible thanks to new technologies, specially developed for the 787 company “Boeing” in collaboration with the international team of developers. 50% of fixed sections of the aircraft, including the fuselage and the load-bearing structure of the wing, will be made of composite materials.
System 787 will have an “open” architecture, which is characterized by greater simplicity and functionality than today’s airplanes. For example, the development team is currently working on the possibility of introducing on-board technical condition monitoring system, which will monitor the work of on-board equipment and systems and transmit data about the items that require maintenance on ground computers.
Engine development for new aircraft engaged in General Electric and Rolls-Royce. “Boeing” expects that the new solutions in the field of engine will provide up to 8% of the total increase in the fuel efficiency of aircraft that surpasses existing technologies in this area in the segment of medium-sized aircraft almost two generations.
Currently, the production of new methods and processes that allow the “Boeing” and its partners to provide the highest possible efficiency at each step of the program. For example, the production of the fuselage in a monobloc aluminum saves 1,500 sheets and 40,000 – 50,000 rivets and other fasteners.
