Aircraft design has remained mostly the same for the last several decades. But a new jumbo jet concept is soon going to revolutionize the aviation industry.

This disruptive jumbo jet concept was recently unveiled by an American company SE Aeronautics. The new jumbo jet concept has taken an unconventional approach to aircraft design and performance.

The new design will reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions

Called SE200, super-efficient new generation aircraft has some rarely seen features like a third wing, a double tail fin, and two rear engines. New aircraft design will lower fuel consumption by 70% and reduce CO2 emissions by 80%.

Disrupter SE200 is the future of flying

The futuristic-looking Tri-wing SE200 concept significantly improves the lift over drag which means shorter take-off and landing (STOL) and extremely long flights.

The game-changer innovative design has a double tail fin and two engines mounted to the rear. The tri-wing aircraft is designed to carry up to 264 passengers at a speed of Mach 0.90 (690.5 mph). It has a non-stop range of 10,560 miles (around 16,995 km).

It is designed with an emphasis on safety. The fuel is stored in self-sealing bladders on top of the fuselage instead of wings. In case of any emergency landing over water, the aircraft will float.

SE Aeronautics has developed a new “once-through” air feed ventilation system that doesn’t recirculate the air in the cabin, which means a significant reduction in exposure to airborne diseases.
