What's the "BLADE" project?

The BLADE project which stands for Breakthrough Laminar Aircraft Demonstrator in Europe is tasked with assessing the feasibility of introducing the technology for commercial aviation. It aims to improve aviations ecological footprint, bringing with it a 50% reduction of wing friction and up to five percent lower CO2 emission. Airbus A340 Flight Lab is the first test aircraft in the world to combine a transonic laminar wing profile with a true internal primary structure.
