Deutsche Aircraft has ambitious plans of leading the way in new era of clean aviation through the development of D328eco platform. The D32eco will be a game-changer to provide more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly air travel to provide an eco-friendly solution for operators.
Features of the D328eco –
State-of-the-art flight deck design and capabilities offered by the latest avionics suite
single pilot operation for greater operational efficiency
Pratt & Whitney PW127S engines and a SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) compatible airframe
In line with Deutsche Aircraft’s sustainability objectives, REACH compliant manufacturing processes will be adopted in a new state-of-the-art, Industry 4.0, paperless Final Assembly Line (FAL) in Leipzig, Germany. The project is anticipated to boost local economies throughout its supply chain, in addition to generating indirect jobs in supporting industries.
Thomas Jarzombek, Federal Government Coordinator of German Aerospace Policy said, “The coronavirus pandemic has had an immediate and very serious impact on aviation and the aviation industry. It is therefore an excellent sign that – despite the crisis – work is going on full steam ahead on the D328eco. The federal government has supported the project right from the start and will continue to do so. A few weeks ago, the second tranche of our development cost loan was disbursed. The federal government is also funding the D328 via its ‘LuFo’ aviation research program in order to turn the zero-carbon vision for aircraft into reality.”
Deutsche Aircraft anticipates that travelling habits and demands on airlines will change. Traditional large-scale hub and spoke operations will be restructured as the demand for short-haul, point-to-point, low-emission transport grows. Airlines will resize their fleets to accommodate smaller, more efficient and more eco-friendly aircraft, and seek to open underserved routes with direct services through “right sizing” operations.
Dave Jackson, Managing Director of Deutsche Aircraft commented, “As we mark the UN’s International Civil Aviation Day we look to the future of aviation and the need to innovate today. The COVID crisis has dramatically impacted the industry forever and our planet faces major challenges of which we are already starting to experience the impact. But as we plan to rebuild the sector, we can recalibrate and refocus on developing new products and processes that are much more environmentally friendly. “
The D328eco provides the perfect solution for the aviation industry evolution, providing both economic and environmental benefits.
