RSS
AWST's 2014 Aerospace & Defense issue (Dec. 30, 2013) takes a look at the year ahead and features analysis of the major commercial aviation programs to watch in 2014. 

Included in the issue is this graphic, curated by Technology Managing Editor, Graham Warwick, that shows how new airframe, engine and system technologies are combining to produce significant fuel-efficiency gains over today's narrowbodies. 

Graham writes that after the major technology leaps of Boeing's 787, the new single-aisle airliners now in development seem anti-climatic, but they are more advanced than they seem on the surface. Click on the image to take a closer look.
