Boeing cita riesgos en el diseño del nuevo jet de Airbus

March 4, 2021 - Boeing plantea preocupaciones sobre el diseño del nuevo jet de fuselaje estrecho de su archirrival Airbus, el A321XLR, señalando que el innovador tanque de combustible– integrado directamente en el fuselaje – podría presentar riesgos de incendio.

In a submission to the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Boeing said the architecture of a fuel tank intended to increase the A321XLR’s range “presents many potential hazards,” according to a Reuters report.

Airbus plans to make the new tank an integral part of the fuselage, meaning its shape would follow the contours of the jet and carry more fuel.

EASA has said it would impose special conditions to ensure the fuselage around the integral fuel tank is resistant to external fire to protect passengers.

In comments to EASA first reported by Flightglobal, Boeing cited risks if a jet veers off a runway or its wheels fail.
