Aviation company KLM takes fuel-efficiency and environmental impact seriously, and to the next level, in the form of the Flying-V, the aircraft of the future. The spectacular V formed by the wings creates an improved aerodynamic shape and reduces the weight of the aircraft. Computer calculations predict that the plane will reduce fuel consumption by 20% compared to the most advanced aircraft flying today, namely the Airbus A350-900. The Flying-V will seat 314; while the Airbus A350 seats between 300-350. The design also mirrors the A350’s 213-feet wingspan, enabling it to use existing airport gate and runway layouts. The plane is named after the Gibson Flying-V electric guitar, used by musical innovators such as Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards; KLM.com.
