Big Wing Delivers Advanced Technology

Posted September 27, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Airbus claims it's the "largest single part made from composites" in commercial aircraft today. Measuring 32 m x 6 m, the Airbus A350-1000 wing incorporates a large number of advanced features. Droop-nose leading edge devices and adaptive dropped-hinge flaps will increase the jetliner's efficiency at low speeds. On-board computer systems will control the wing's moving surfaces during flight to lower drag and reduce fuel burn. SAE International reports that wings for the all-new wide-body airliner are now being assembled in North Wales.
