Silent airplane to be shown at MAKS


Constructors of the Central hydrodynamic Institute named after Zhukovsky have developed a new generation of aircraft – the liner is almost silent.

The model has already been tested in the transonic wind tunnel. Because the wing, on which the engines are located, has the shape of a small sweep, decreases resistance and the liner is virtually silent, the documents of the Association of State Scientific Center “Nauka” outline.

“This will increase the diameter of the motor – fan, and will significantly reduce the noise, the third innovation – is to reduce the drag of the aircraft”, the Head of the department of aerodynamics of aircraft and missiles Anatoly Bolsunovsky said.
