    SAE’s Electric Aircraft Steering Group brings together technical experts, researchers and regulatory personnel to define best practices for the development of electrical systems for tomorrow’s aircraft. Newer Boeing and Airbus models already feature electric braking and, flight control actuators. Replacing traditional...

    Aircraft manufacturer Boeing is studying the possibility of pilotless airliners, and plans to test certain aspects of the idea in 2018. Today’s drones demonstrate the feasibility of the concept and feature at least some of the required technology. Modern flight computers already allow the current generation of...

    The wide-body Airbus A350-1000 is a bundle of innovation—wings that change shape in flight for better aerodynamics and controls designed to reduce pilot workload. Carbon fiber-reinforced plastic construction and more efficient engines reduce fuel consumption by 25%, saving money and reducing environmental impact. At...

    The aircraft manufacturer already 3D prints engine parts. Going a step further, it has patented a technology that enables the printing of 3D objects with no support, while they are floating in the air. The new process involves multiple 3D printers and a magnetic field holding the “nugget,“ Boeing’s name for the...
