What is the future of Aviation? So many have had this question, this includes airports, airlines but most importantly aircraft! In today’s video, I take a look at the Flying-V an aircraft that’s more efficient than the Airbus A350!

people eight five one four years now have wondered what the aircraft of the future will look like without concept after concept failed project after failed project however it be wrong with me not to explore new ideas here on the channel and as silly as they may sound or even look they do personally intrigued me today we're taking a look at something that KLM and tu Delft have joined forces to make aircraft manufacturers as we know them today are trying to make the aviation industry and aircraft more sustainable and continue making these aircraft which are fuel-efficient as well and today's proposal and concept known as the Flying V is set to promise that with its quirky design and aerodynamic shape it will reduce weight and therefore use 20% less fuel than the a350 an aircraft that is already known for its fuel efficiency it's expected that the aircraft known as the Flying V will be officially revealed as a full concept at the KLM experience days set to take place in October to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of KLM if so if you are around the area I definitely recommend trying to go to this and check it out the KLM president and CEO said in recent years KLM has developed as a pioneer in sustainability within the airline industry the development of aviation has given the world a great deal offering us an opportunity to connect people this privilege is paired with a huge responsibility for our planet KLM takes this very seriously and is therefore been investing in sustainability at different levels for many years enabling it to develop a broad spectrum of sustainability initiatives we're proud of our progressive cooperation relationship with tu Delft which ties in well with KLM strategy and serves as an important milestone for us on the road to scaling up sustainable aviation when taking a look at the exact specifications of the aircraft it would seat some three hundred and fourteen passengers in a standard two-class configuration with the same volume of cargo as that on the Airbus a350 it even fit in the hangar of an Airbus a350 it had slot onto the taxiways at all airports it fit into gates and I'd be able to use all the current infrastructure more widely at airports around the world this is a major bonus as we've seen with the likes of the a380 Airport suffering two poor combined totals of billions into redoing inside of their Airport and also outside to help cope with the size and demand that comes with Airlines operating the a380 into their said Airport what about inside the Flying V how will it benefit Airlines and also travelers while keeping with the theme of efficiency all materials would be carefully selected to ensure that the type is as lightweight as possible and can therefore save Airlines as much money as possible however with that bathrooms and also seats would still be as comfortable as possible for the travelers with the seat layout taking the seats all the way to the wings and airlines would therefore have a lot more potential when it comes to the configuration of the aircraft what are your thoughts on a Flying V while it's not confirmed that this will ever get in the skies there are a lot more tests to go on we've seen some concepts fail at the drawing board and that's something we need to keep in mind however it is still very exciting and I would be interested to hear your thoughts on it down in the comments section below or potentially over on my Twitter page thank you very much for watching another one of my videos and I do very much look forward to you all joining me in the next one

  1. I think that the V plane could very much work. It seems super cool. If it’s able to do long haul flights, it could help the planet because the long haul planes do use a lot of fuel that’s not that good for the planet. So I say that this should totally happen! 🙂

  2. Airbus presented this model at Farnborough 2000, when they officially launched the A380's sales. Just to give you an idea of how old an idea this is and how little progress has been made on it.

  3. Reminds me of the blended wing-body ideas that Boeing has been talking about for a decade or so, but I don't see an advantage of having that big empty space amidships.

  4. it looks better than Blended Wing Body as it still using cylindrical structures for the pressurised cabin but I think lift induced drag would still be an issue below cruising speed.

  5. Great report! I think I like the sound of this aircraft in general, but since the shape is a V, the g-force of the plane on passengers will be on an angle causing some people to misinterpret which way they are going to be pushed towards with the force . So, I think it should still have the same shape, but the layout of the seats should be facing forwards with the windows taking the angle.

  6. From the look of it I suspect it will use more material than an A350. The 2 sides of it might = wingspan but those are 2 fuselages. Also since you'll have 2 wings I feel like it would require more cabin crew.

  7. It looks like people will be seated at an angle offset from the direction of straight flight. I wonder if this will cause some motion sickness in sensitive fliers. Not a fan,… even if it is SUSTAINABLE!

  8. One of the safety regulations states that one must be able to evacuate the entire plane in 90 seconds in an emergency from one side. I wonder how that will be achieved or if they will waive that for this plane resulting in a plane that is a little less safe.

  9. The design makes it very very unstable… For instance, during an engine failure at low speeds high thrust setting, the lack of a vertical stabilizer (tail fin) would make directional stability almost impossible. I'm guessing whoever drew it has very little aviation experience only esthetically pleasing design.

  10. Further to what I commented on the other video, … This plane can be made to be more economical & safer…..!

    Shorter take-off ..& landing.
    It can slow down the plane if it is coming in too fast .
    Good for emergency landing.
    In the event of extreme emergency and perhaps with the deployment of parachutes ; the pilot can release the engines to lighten the load provided that both engines are dead …

  11. It would make a nice theme park ride… the average person would be puking their brains out whenever that thing had to bank into a turn.
    The further you move people from the centerline of the aircraft, the more and faster they move. The seatbelt lights would have to be turned on every time they needed to make a turn.

  12. An interesting concept. As mentioned many times before passenger comfort will be an issue. Reduction of operational costs isn't the only thing to keep in mind. If the spread out fuselage remains stable than it might have some chance. But I doubt it heavily.

  13. Boing was working on something that appeared similar, the early 797 before the current 797 was given the moniker. It wasn't a V in the true sense of the term but had it's engines above and behind like this does. I guess Boeing losing it's spine won't invest in new aircraft and will be passed up by true innovators.

  14. There is a reason for round fuselages. It's the fact that that is the best way to hold the pressurization. Odd shaped fuselages will develop cracks in the skin structure where there are odd bends. Back to the drawing board? Or don't pressurize and fly below 10,000 ft. The DC-3 has lasted so long because it didn't go through pressurization cycles

  15. It is refreshing to see KLM design such an innovative and break-away jet design. All jets today look like suped-up versions of DC3s with the same nose and fuselage conventions used time after time. There has to be a better and newer way to design the body of an airplane. Kudos all 'round. Only thing…if only it didn't need kerosene to power its engines because we will soon need to get away from burning fossil fuels.
