Vladimir Tatarenko, a Ukrainian engineer who has created a “rescue cabin,” believes that it will increase survival chances in the event of a plane tragedy and will thus help to save a significant number of lives in the future. ‘Rescue cabin’ is an acronym for the phrase.
As proposed by Tatarenko, the airplane would be divided down the center, allowing the cabin, which houses the passengers, to float down to the earth’s surface safely from above, while the engine and cockpit would drop to the earth’s surface below.
In order to help rescue capsules in landing more softly on water or land when they are in distress, several parachutes and boosters have been fitted aboard them.
People who consider traveling by plane to be a dreadful process rather than an exhilarating way to begin their vacation may find it an uncomfortable experience when they first get on the plane. This, however, is not always the case in practice. This, however, is not the case at all. As someone who has a strong interest in aviation design and technology, on the other hand, I found the concept to be a bemusing diversion from my normal workday. It appears unlikely that such a design would save any lives in any airline tragedy other than the most catastrophic, and it would be prohibitively expensive in all but the most extreme aviation crashes, according to the evidence.
While the video concept depicts a detachable cabin being deployed on a plane that has experienced engine failure, it should be highlighted that crashes caused by this problem are extremely rare. In the last 10 years, according to the National Transportation Safety Board, system and power failures have accounted for less than three percent of all fatal accidents. Early on, it became clear that the argument was not going to hold up under investigation.
Following Tatarenko’s research, it is expected that 95 percent of customers would be prepared to pay more for their airline tickets if they were guaranteed a chance of survival in the event of a plane disaster, according to the findings.
A controversial component of this design, on the other hand, has been the fact that the pilot will be forced to remain behind when the cabin and cockpit are separated by a partition. However, just a few considerations have been given to the design of the cockpit itself, which is a shame given the importance of the cockpit design to the Pilot.
In Tatarenko’s opinion, “survival of a plane disaster is a realistic option.” When it comes to disasters caused by human error, aircraft engineers all around the world are powerless in the face of their efforts to make planes safer. Materials that are now available, such as Kevlar and carbon composites, will be used to construct the fuselage, wings, flaps, spoilers, ailerons, and tail of the aircraft, and these materials will be utilised during the design phase of the project. As a result of this, it is possible to compensate to some extent for the weight of the parachute system.”
As a result, others felt obligated to insist that designers incorporate a safety strategy into their designs prior to the beginning of the production process..
Even still, the reality remains that around 1000 lives have been lost in incidents that happened during the cruise portion of a flight, when the usage of an attachable cabin would have provided the greatest benefit to passengers. The flight has only just begun, but it is difficult to understand how the technology would be advantageous in the great majority of situations.
I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on the plane’s overall design.
