Boeing program will test more than 30 new technologies

During the month of May, Boeing will use a 777-200ER to test more than thirty new technologies that aim to improve cabin interiors, with a focus on a few initiatives. In airport operations, the implementation of a single-engine taxi and digital authorizations for the procedure will be tested, with the aim of reducing fuel consumption and improving safety, reducing the aircraft pilot’s workload. Regarding noise reduction, flight procedures will be used, such as a steeper approach trajectory and a continuous descent approach. Lightweight, recyclable, and durable floor coverings will also be used, as well as recycled carbon fiber roof panels with 25% biofuel-based resin as materials. Inside the cabin, improved insulation will be used for better noise, humidity, and temperature control, and fabric-covered acoustic panels for the bulkhead and galley. The seats will have sensors to detect occupancy during takeoff and landing, and the lavatory will be a touchless system. Four of the cabin technologies will be presented at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2024, in Hamburg, Germany, between May 22nd and 24th. – https://aeromagazine.uol.com.br/artigo/programa-da-boeing-ira-testar-mais-de-30-novas-tecnologias.html
