About a third of the world’s passengers suffer from anxiety when travelling by air. Ukrainian aviation engineer Vladimir Tatarenko has been working for years to come up with a solution that would save human lives.
He has come up with a new aircraft design that would allow the entire passenger cabin to be detached in mid-flight in case of an aviation emergency. The detachable cabin can be ejected at anytime during the take-off, landing or in mid-flight.
The cabin can land on both land and water. Once ejected, there are parachutes attached to the roof of the cabin that will ensure that it lands safely. Inflatable rubber tubes at the lower end of the cabin will keep it afloat if it lands on water.
The passengers wouldn’t lose any of their personal belongings as the prototype also includes storage space designed to hold luggage under the cabin.
The existing technology of using of Kevlar and carbon composites for fuselage, wings, flaps, spoilers, ailerons, tail will be used during the design. It allows to partly compensate the weight of parachute system.
Not everyone is buying into this idea as yet, with some people questioning the cost-effectiveness and whether the detachable cabin would compromise the structural integrity of the rest of the plane. Finally, what happens to the pilots as it is only the cabin that is designed to detach.
