The ATR72 is a regional short-haul aircraft that carries 72 passengers and made its maiden flight in 1988. It remains operational and is currently being produced outside of the effects of the coronavirus. Using this heritage in aviation as a design reference gave us a real 3D footprint for building a concept airplane.
As lovers of aircraft design, we have also oriented ourselves towards the de Havilland Comet, which has one of its own interesting story. Developed in 1949, the aircraft was the first commercial aircraft in the world and at that time was considered a futuristic and future-oriented aircraft.
Unfortunately, the aircraft suffered from metal fatigue (a phenomenon unknown at the time), pressurization issues, and numerous other design flaws that resulted in some publicly known crashes. With the UK aviation industry being hit by the negative impact of its failures, the lessons learned would add lasting value to the aviation industry. Unfortunately, it would ultimately be American industry that would benefit the most, and if the British hadn’t got there first, they would have experienced exactly the same mistakes.
