✈ New Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner ✈

Brief Description:

The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner is a superefficient airplane of the third millennium with new passenger-pleasing features. It will bring the economics of large jet transports to the middle of the market, using 20 percent less fuel than any other airplane of its size.

The main innovation of the new 787 Dreamliner over the aircraft of previous generations is the use of composite material carbon fibre instead of aluminium, which significantly reduces the weight and improves performance. The conditions onboard the plane are continuously monitored by a system of sensors, which also report any maintenance needs to the ground computer systems.

Even the air in the cabin has a greater level of humidity than at present and the altitude within the cabin has been reduced by around 1000 meters, this significantly improve the comfort conditions for travellers. The added light from the larger windows also makes the interior more comfortable.

Advances in engine technology have been the greatest factor contributing to the overall improvement in the Dreamliner’s consumption. The 787 has new engines from General Electric and Rolls Royce, practically representing a jump of two generations in terms of technology.

The new Boeing 787 family offers airlines unprecedented efficiency, significantly reducing operating costs, with exceptional environmental performance. The plane generates savings of around 18% per seat with the same configuration.
