While aviation's more extreme critics claim that the worldwide industry has allegedly been lax in reducing its carbon impact on the atmosphere, engine and airframe manufacturers have quietly proceeded with development of a new generation of aircraft a quantum leap more efficient than state-of-the-art equipment. Innovative engineering, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, 3-D computer lofting for improved engine and airframe aerodynamics, use of lighter materials and advanced ...
