The future ofcommercial airlooksquitedifferent in the eyesof innovativeaero-engineersand designers who haveintroduced newtypes of aircraft,in an effortto make themfaster,more efficientand environmentally friendly.
Corporation "Northrop Grumman"createdthis"flying wing"on whichengines will bebuilton the uppersurface of theaircraft,in order tomitigatethe morenoisethey produce.
N3-X,NASA'slatest"child",is one of thehybridaircraft, andthe airis liftedoverthe surface, causinghis wingsless than the"fat"body.In this way,reduce fuel consumption,as well as thelength of therunwayfor takeoff.

NASAhas developed amodel of"Amelia"aircraftas a hybrid,whichlooks likethewings ofthe aircraftto"grow up"directlyfrom the trunk, whichshould providea more comfortableflyingat higher altitudes.
