Airbus testet Hochleitungsflügel Demonstrator

September 30, 2021 - Airbus forscht an einem "Hochleistungs Flügel", der seine Form während des Fluges ändern kann und so zukünftige Flugzeuge effizienter machen soll und Kohlenstoff-Emissionen reduziert.

The proposed new wing would include various technologies, including “pop-up spoilers” or wing surfaces to alter its profile and get the best performance, just as a bird twists its feathers, Airbus officials said.

The company will test the technology under Airbus UpNext, a subsidiary which concentrates on research and development of future technologies.

Airbus aims to fly the extra-performance wing demonstrator aircraft by the middle of the decade.
