The Upcoming year would be filled with more Excitement because Aviation Fans may gone get to see and experience new aircraft in Airport. There are various manufacturers who are building advanced passenger aircraft which is likely to introduce in the Airliner Family very soon and some are very new to this segments like Chinese first Comac C919 and Russian First MC 21. But the competition is already built by Airbus and Boeing. In future Airliner Companies will have more option to choose various types and version aircraft for their Passengers Transport services. It also causes to the huge market changes for the respective country. Lets have glimpse of Aircraft which likely to introduce in upcoming year.
Comac C919 – China
It is a short-medium range commercial trunk liner that can claim indigenous intellectual property. Its all-economy class layout entails 168 seats, and the hybrid class layout 156 seats. The basic version is designed to cover a range of 4,075 km, while the enhanced version can stretch to 5,555 km. The C919 is designed to compete with the Airbus 320 and the Boeing 737, single-aisle planes that are the workhorses of the world’s airlines. For Comac, the plane represents the culmination of decades of work; for Airbus and Boeing, it is a challenge to a profitable duopoly that has endured for decades.
It rolled out on 2 November 2015 and first flew on 5 May 2017, for a planned introduction in 2020.
Mitsubishi Regional Jet – Japan
The Mitsubishi Regional Jet or MRJ for short, is a twin-engine regional jet aircraft seating 70–90 passengers manufactured by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation, a partnership between majority owner Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Toyota Motor Corporation with design assistance from Toyota affiliate Fuji Heavy Industries, already a manufacturer of aircraft. It will be the first airliner designed and produced in Japan since the NAMC of the 1960s, which was produced at a loss. Its first flight was in November 2015.After a fifth delay, deliveries are scheduled to start by mid-2020.
MC 21 – Russia
The first MC-21-300 rolled-out on June 8, 2016 and first flew on May 28, 2017. It has a carbon fiber reinforced polymer wing and is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1000G or Aviadvigatel PD-14 turbofans. With a capacity of 132-163 passengers in two class, up to 165-211 and up to 6,000–6,400 km (3,200–3,500 nmi) range, the standard MC-21-300 will be followed by a shortened MC-21-200. It has 175 orders as of June 2016.The initial design started in 2006 and detailed design was ongoing in 2011, after delaying introduction from 2012 to 2020
Boeing – United States
Boeing 737 Max – 9
First flight is the latest step in the airplane’s thorough flight-test program, which will be followed by first delivery in 2018. On first flight, teams performed tests on flight controls, systems and handling qualities. The 737 MAX 9 will now undergo comprehensive flight testing before customer deliveries start in 2018.The 737 MAX 9 debuted to the world on March 7. Since then, teams have been performing systems checks, fueling and engine runs on the flight line in preparation for first flight.
Boeing 737 Max – 10
The 737 MAX 10 will be the airlines’ most profitable single-aisle airplane, offering the lowest seat costs ever. Like Boeing’s other 737 MAX models, the MAX 10 incorporates the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, and other improvements to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.
Wide market acceptance with 361 orders, commitments from 16 customers. The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history. The first MAX variant, the 737 MAX 8 has entered commercial service and will followed by the MAX 9, MAX 7 and the MAX 10, which will be introduced in the 2020 time frame.
Boeing 787 -Dreamliner 10
The 787-10 Dreamliner is the newest and longest member of the super-efficient 787 family. As a stretch of the 787-9, the 787-10 leverages the family’s proven technology, long range and preferred passenger experience, with unprecedented efficiency: 10 percent better fuel and emissions than the best on offer by the competition and 25 percent better than the airplanes it will replace.
The first test aircraft is engaged in flight envelope expansion work and the second joined the program in early May 2017, while the third with a passenger cabin interior to test the uprated environmental control system and Trent fuel-burn performance should join in June. The −10 will appear at the 2017 Paris Air Show and it will be first delivered to launch customer Singapore Airlines early in 2018
Airbus – Europe
The A350 XWB is truly innovative; introducing new technology throughout the entirety of the aircraft. From the design of the wings that morph and change shape in-flight to obtain optimal efficiency, to the flight controls and system that reduce the pilot’s workload, this aircraft utilizes modern technology to create a better way of flying.
Nowhere is this innovation more apparent than in the A350 XWB’s fuselage, built with carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). The combination of these technological advances ensures that the A350-1000 burns 25 per cent less fuel than its nearest competitor, saving money and reducing any harmful effects to the environment. A350-1000 expected to be launch on 2018-19.
The A320neo “new engine option” is the latest of many product upgrades as Airbus continues to invest around 300 million euros a year in improvements for the A320 Family. Delivered to its first airline operator in 2016, the NEO incorporates many innovations, including latest generation engine choices – the PurePower PW1100G-JM from Pratt & Whitney and CFM International’s LEAP-1A – and large Sharklet™ wingtip devices, which together deliver 15 per cent in fuel savings.
Thanks to optimised use of cabin space, the A319neo – which performed its first flight in March 2017 – seats 140 passengers in two classes or up to 160 in a high-density layout with a range of up to 3,750 nautical miles.
