A New Disruptive Widebody Aircraft is Coming to the Skies



Perhaps, you've been wanting a civilian jet that’ll fly you at 690 miles per hour while you munch a sirloin sandwich or braised beef and gulp down a sweet red wine or exotic juice.


Perhaps, you’re worried by the high fuel consumption of today’s jets. Perhaps, it's the environmentally hazardous CO2 emissions that worry you. Something that'll settle your mind is on the horizon. SE200 is coming!

Last week, American-based SE Aeronautics unveiled their new wide-body airliner concept - the SE200. The new innovative and super-efficient airliner is a 100% monocoque molded wide-body airliner that is a new generation of aircraft. Impressive range and speed Perhaps, the most remarkable thing about the SE200, apart from its speed of Mach 0.9 and the significant fuel savings, is its range which is very impressive by today's standards.

The ultra-long-range SE200 aircraft will be able to carry up to 264 passengers non-stop over a distance of 10,560 miles (16,995 kilometers) or more than 19 hours. The aircraft will fly further than most modern aircraft in the market today including the ultra-long-range kings like the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A350.

In comparison, the Boeing 777-200LR and the Airbus A340-500 have maximum ranges of 17,395km and 16,670km respectively. However, these two jets are no longer considered fuel-efficient and are being phased out. The modern Airbus A350-900ULR has a maximum range of 18,000km, albeit with fewer passengers. The upcoming Boeing 777-8 will have a range of 16,170 km while carrying up to 384 passengers.

When launched, SE200 will allow airlines to connect almost any two airports in the world efficiently with non-stop flights. For instance, the SE200 will be able to fly nonstop between Cape Town, South Africa and San Francisco, USA. That route has a distance of 16,500 kilometers according to great circle mapper.

SE200 will be able to fly nonstop from CPT to SFO which is 16,500 km

Even more impressive is the fact that SE200 will fly further and more efficiently while consuming a whopping 70% less fuel than today's modern jets. It'll also emit 80% less CO2 as measured by per seat kilometer.

Disruptive technology The design of the SE200 is innovative and disruptive. This translates to a more efficient, light-tri wing configuration that greatly improves lift over drag, resulting in short take-off and landing capabilities. SE200 also incorporates super thin, long wings and complete streamlining from the nose to the tail.

With an emphasis on safety, the aircraft is 100% composite, molded in one tough, safer fuselage that is many times stronger than today's aircraft. In comparison, the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A350 are made of 50% composite.

The cabin of the SE200 features a new 'once-through' air feed ventilation system that won't circulate air in the cabin, thereby ensuring a more sterile cabin. This, coupled with the new 'tilting' seat design, creates a comfortable experience that passengers are yet to experience.

Unlike existing aircraft, fuel is not stored in the wings but in self-sealing bladders on top of the fuselage, and in the event of emergency landing over water, the aircraft floats.

This disruptive new design is also expected to double the lifespan of an aircraft while reducing overall block hour cost by half when compared to other aircraft its size. SE Aeronautics is a leader in sustainable air travel technology. Its technological improvements turn the corner on efficiency, sustainability, safety, comfort, and operating cost.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
