Wing of Tomorrow Demonstrators

The three 17metre full scale wings demonstrators include:

  • Static wing demonstrator - used to test structural capabilities of new designs and materials and to validate our analysis.

  • Fully-equipped demonstrator - used to test installation technologies and novel approaches to equipping the next generation of wings with systems. 

  • Run@rate demonstrator - will test industrial capability and automation technologies to assess how we can build wings at the scale and speed we need to.

Folding wingtip technology

Airbus' folding wingtip technology looks at increasing the span of the wing to increase lift, reduce drag and to improve fuel efficiency without the need to alter existing airport infrastructure.
