This definitely belongs to the Non-Av section.


"PANAJI: Union minister of state for science, technology and earth sciences Ashwani Kumar said a 1,700-seater passenger aircraft will be rolled out in the next seven years.

Speaking in Panaji, Kumar said development of the aircraft is in an advanced stage and hoped India will be able to produce this state-of-the-art indigenous passenger aircraft soon."

It comes under the "WTF is he smoking?" section.

I think the likelihood of a 1,700 seat four story airliner going into service is the same as jet packs being commonly available for the public in seven years and it has been promised to us since the sixties...or that it would fit in the "80 meter box".

I would like to see how the plane would look like.

If the A380 is limited by airport infrastructure, then how will this plane proceed? I assume it will have a massive wingspan, be extra long/tall...if the Indians manage to pull even one and get it into service into any airport, I'll buy a ticket on the first airline that flies it.

I agree with Dreadnought.

As of right now, the only logical conclusion I can come up with is it will be a flying boat. I don't see how they could land this aircraft on land unless it is based off the BWB.



Every problem has a simple solution; finding the simple solution is the difficult problem.

A pretty interesting read. Can't vouch for accuracy, though.

Great Emirates will by 100 and ply the skies full of them, and the 380 will be relageted to freight runs as all airlines will follow suit, before realising they had made a big mistake.

Has India actually produced a 'state-of-the-art' commercial aircraft? I mean..they can't even seem to make the LCA work..after years of 'development' and getting help from other countries.

And now they want to build a 1700 seater..wow. This Kumar person seems to be smoking something really good...

But that's the problem with these politicians..they make stupid statements which puts the entire nation to shame. Nobody cares in India because they have other things to worry about and idiotic politicians always keep spouting off nonsense.

Maybe if you get all the passengers to stand during flight you can fit 1700 passengers into an aircraft without having to enlarge it to much. I doubt it would be a comfertable flight for a long time though

Plus he's probably thinking another couple of hundred can stand on the wings and a few more hundred can cling to the roof.

Hey, if they could cram 26 people into a Mini Cooper, I'd say that you could probably squeeze more than 1700 into an A380. Not sure how to handle it weight-wise, though...

I remember a crash in the early 90s involving a Yak-40. The -40 is a small jet made to seat 30-40 people at most, but they pulled something like 85 bodies out of the wreckage. Oops...

That was a Tajikistan Air Yak-40 in Khorog. Aircraft was reportedly hijacked by armed gunmen and 82/86 onboard died. I don't know how you get that many people in something so small, a Yak-40 isn't much bigger than a minivan inside.

Well, it will be right up there with the "state-of-the-art" Tata motorcar. Only bursts into flames occasionally.

India and China are highly populated. I am not surprised they are thinking of doing this.

More seriously, is there real feasibility for such an aircraft?



There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde
