Russian engineers have reduced the weight of the aircraft at ton

To facilitate the aircraft failed due to the bracket made of titanium alloy.

Russian engineers reported that they experimentally reduced the weight of planes by 20%, or about ton. As reported by the developers, they managed to achieve reduction of the aircraft through the use of a new material, which is produced by the method of laser growing. For this purpose, the powder of Russian production of titanium alloy. The aircraft, which used the brackets from a new type of material, have already been tested.

Experts believe that reducing the weight of the aircraft will have a positive impact on ergonomics of the air vehicle, in addition to improve the flight characteristics. Russian scientists told about the intention to use in the creation of aircraft, equipped with the new view of the bracket of unusual shape, which will be reflected bionic design. This was told by Director of EcoTech Andrew Trufanov.
