MIT Ecoairplane redesign aircraft models. Following the request of NASA to MIT University to redesign current aircraft to increase fuel efficiency, lower emissions and allow planes to take off on shorter runways, a team of MIT researchers presented an airplane that uses 70% less fuel than conventional aircraft. The team accomplished all of NASA’s set goals with their innovative D-series plane. NASA called this government-funded initiative the “N+3″, signifying that the planes are meant to revolutionize the aircraft industry in three generations.

NASA’s goals were to reduce fuel consumption while taking into account that in 3 decades air traffic is set to double. Within the next few months funding will be released to go on to the second phase of the program.

MIT Ecoairplane, as MIT designed their D-series as a 180 passenger aircraft meant to replace the domestic 737 market. The plane utilizes a host of technological advances to decrease its fuel consumption. Its features account for part of the reduction in fuel usage. The MIT team also unveiled their H-series — a “hybrid wing body” plane that seats 350 passengers and could replace the 777 overseas market. NASA expects designs from this program to take flight in 2035.
MIT Ecoairplane a new era in aerospace!
