As air travel becomes more and more affordable and the world economy expands, so does the demand for flights. Major commercial airports and their infrastructure are struggling to keep up with this increased demand. The AIAA has identified this problem and has put out a Request for Proposal for a High Density Short Range Transport Aircraft which can carry 400 people in a two class configuration up to 3,500 nautical miles. The Skybus SB-400 is our clean slate design response to the AIAA’s RFP for a High DensityShort Range Transport Aircraft. an increasing part of everyday life. Our focus for the design was to increase efficiency and therefore economics utilizing new technologies in materials for aircraft structures, a modern engine selection, as well as optimizing the design for a 700 nautical mile mission by way of aerodynamics and cargo capacity.
