RUNNING head: Airbus A380 2 Airbus A380 superjumbo is the world`s biggest passage airline. It is also packed with cutting- edge technology. The cabins are nearly 22 ft. wide. Only 54 ft. long it is huge can carry up to 853 passengers 35 more than their competitors. The wings are enormous it can reach ft. 70 family cars could park on each one. But if the wings are too large, it can cause problems. Because the plane it's huge it needs world`s biggest wings they are almost the length of a football pitch. Their international restrictions on the maximum size of the aircraft, to avoid collisions. The limit on wings is 262 ft. and 60 inches the wings must be shorter fit regulations. They must still create enough lift to get the world biggest airline into the air (Alan 2015). The airline draws their inspiration from the animal kingdom. Dr. Peter an airspace engineer explains the key thing to a wing is prosecution shape, and that bends the air around the wing. The wing can make a flow to go faster on top than it goes on the bottom. The shape of the wing is designed, so the air moves faster above than below. As a result, the air above the wing is in a lower pressure than normal, so the higher pressure underneath the wing pushes upwards creating lift for all aircraft. The same smooth flow of the air creates lift all the way along the wing or almost all the way. The air flow on the wing tip looks completely different, instead of a clean,

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
