It is reported that the Boeing 737 MAX is the latest fourth generation of the 737 series models, is currently the world's most advanced single-channel passenger aircraft.
Earlier, Boeing was "very satisfied" with the initial operation of the first Indianapolis 737 MAX 8 aircraft and Keith Leverkuhn, vice president and general manager of the 737 MAX at Boeing, said that the fuel consumption of the aircraft during the long-range take-off flight from Seattle showed Aircraft expectations, far less than they expected, from which the performance of the model can be seen.
The 737 MAX series includes three models: the 737 MAX 7,737 MAX 8 and the 737 MAX 9.
The 737 MAX 8 has a total length of 39.5 meters, a wing span of 35.9 meters, a total height of 12.5 meters and a cruising speed of 842 km / h.
The 737 MAX 8's maximum appearance is characterized by its state-of-the-art ATwinglet, which adds a sag to the 737 MAX 8's winglets compared to the previous generation with a slightly angled camber.This composite design not only reduces drag but also further increases wing lift.
In addition, the 737 MAX 8 is equipped with a CFM Leap-1B engine. The largest appearance of this type of engine is the jagged rear nacelle of the jagged engine. This configuration is actually valid for the 787-9 Genx-1B And the 747-8's Genx-2 B engine are also designed to reflect the engine design, which is designed primarily to save energy and reduce emissions while further reducing engine noise, which greatly enhance the opportunity to experience.
Other improvements in the shape of the main body of the tail is further modification, the design is designed to further reduce the resistance and noise.
The above three exterior design features make the new 737 MAX 8 significantly reduce fuel consumption, emissions and noise levels compared to the existing 737NG,The 737 MAX 8 will also be one of the 737's most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly models.
It is reported, 737 MAX 8's range has been further enhanced:Beijing origin can cover all domestic routes (except plateau routes) as well as Japan, South Korea, some of the main routes in Southeast Asia.
Cabin configuration section, Air China's 737 MAX 8 will use two-cabin layout (F8 + Y168), the entire cabin will be equipped with personal power outlet. In the cabin interior, the "Sky Interior" used on the 787 comes standard with the 737 MAX series. The "Sky Interior" complements the redesigned Space Bin overhead luggage compartment to give the cabin a more sense of space, correspondingly The feeling of opportunity will also be enhanced.
According to Air China's introduction, Air China will introduce about 40 737 MAX series aircraft from 2017 to 2020.
In terms of price, Air China did not state the price clearly, but HNA already signed a big order with Boeing for 50 737 MAX 8 aircraft with a total value of over US $ 5.1 billion with an average single price of over US $ 100 million.
