Although there are studies that show that air travel is the safest form of transport for all, the reality is that in a scenario of a plane crash, passengers rarely survive. Which it is funny because many of the designs for future aircraft seek to be lighter, which consume less fuel , have a greater passenger capacity , or implement advanced entertainment systems , but rarely seeks to safer .
Now, with the intention of having safer aircraft, which are able to save people in case of an accident, it arises an idea patented by the engineer in Ukrainian aviation Tatarenko Vladimir Nikolaevich, who has designed a system that would put us at a detachable cabin I could be ejected in midair .
Capsule aircraft passengers to save a catastrophe
According to data from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in the last ten years, 8% of all air accidents have occurred during takeoff, landing 21% and 71% during flight. In the analysis of the causes of accidents, we have 75% of the cases occurred due to human factors .
Therefore, this aircraft is designed to operate the exhaust system either during takeoff, landing or in flight, this system would be subject to a ruling that endanger the flight situation, it would be activated automatically and would not be necessary the intervention of the pilots.
Once the cabin is separated from the plane, two parachute deployed for landing softer, also at the bottom of the cabin would have inflatable tubes to help in case water landings. As an additional point, this cabin would be able to transport passengers and to their belongings.
According to Nikolaevich, 95% of users aircraft would be willing to pay bills between 15 and 20% more expensive , in order to have access to a plane with removable cabin. Despite this, there are still some questions in the air, for example, what would happen to the pilots? and how this would affect the airframe design ?. This is just a patent and of course there is no guarantee that see a plane of this type, but its creator is already in talks with major aircraft manufacturers to sell their idea.
