MAVERIC, a “blended wing body” scale model technological demonstrator

Airbus has revealed MAVERIC (Model Aircraft for Validation and Experimentation of Robust Innovative Controls) its “blended wing body” scale model technological demonstrator.
At 2 metres long and 3.2 metres wide, with a surface area of about 2.25m², MAVERIC features a disruptive aircraft design, that has the a potential to reduce fuel consumption by up-to 20 percent compared to current single-aisle aircraft. The “blended wing body” configuration also opens up new possibilities for propulsion systems type and integration, as well as a versatile cabin for a totally new on-board passenger experience. More info:



  • It's nice to see that lifting body designs of the 60s are finally gaining traction. I first saw the design on the opening of the "6 million dollar man", lol, which was 1973.

  • I've read about these. It says these blended wings save fuel considerablely. But the sway might affect passengers experience since they're farther from the tilt axis. Also poses some hazard in evacuation since there are less exit per passenger. It'd be perfect for cargo tho.

  • Guys please fund and prio this. We need to innovate urgently. Current aicraft designs are basically the same since ever.
