DLRmagazine 167 – The sky is the limit

Future aircraft must be as climate friendly and quiet as possible – without compromising comfort. New cabin concepts could help meet these requirements. At the DLR Institute of System Architectures in Aeronautics in Hamburg-Finkenwerder, a team of industrial designers is investigating how people will want to travel in the future, how their travel behaviour might change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and what impact this will have on the design of aircraft. The team is developing new concepts for a modular aircraft cabin that is adapted to people’s needs and, to this end, is also involving passengers in the design process.
