Airline usage has steadily grown since the very first passenger plane took off the ground. And since then, they have had many innovative changes to take over the industry in the last few decades.
The latest of these innovations is the idea that you could have any sort of control to the plane under the event of any type of duress. In the case of an emergency, being able to “drop” the detachable cabin from the plane is now taking root in many ways, with many people coming up with ways that this could be possible to do.
The latest, and perhaps most radical of designs that is now being talked about, is a plane that has a detachable cabin that can be released in times of emergency, like when the plane is going down. The idea behind it is to be able to save more passengers in the event that anything was to happen. So how is this possible? The idea is that the cabin will be supplied with parachutes on the top of said cabin what will be deployed if the cabin is detached from the plane. The cabin will also have tubes along the bottom that will be inflated to land in water, or to cushion the landing of the cabin on land.
Another great feature of the new detachable cabin idea is that there is a compartment underneath this cabin where all luggage will be stowed. That makes it easy for those passengers to be able to retrieve their things, and no luggage will actually be lost in the event of a detachment. The luggage will be stored directly under this capsule cabin and will have no bearing on any other part of the plane.
The idea is getting mixed reviews, such as it not being cost effective, as there are few plane crashes a year. Some people think that to build it means you would have to give up structural integrity to other parts of the plane. Another concern is how the pilot’s cabin would be evacuated, as well as if the cabin itself could be in danger of catching fire or blowing up before being detached. All in all, it is a great and innovative idea, but there are still some things that need to be worked out to make it a go. It could potentially make it safer and less scary to fly, especially for those people who are afraid of the plane crashing.
