Technical Programme – The new aircraft

A new aircraft is being designed and built to create a flying replica of one of the planes of the Travessia: the Fairey III D. Visually similar, it will incorporate new technologies and materials, and will be a technological demonstrator of the best of Portuguese-speaking engineering and know-how.

The “Lusitânia 2022” will use modern materials. These technologies and others will be demonstrated through flight, also emulating the original spirit of technological innovation of the 1922 voyage.

Here are some images of the plane’s structure project:

In the images above you can see the horizontal stabiliser, the fuselage structure and the wings.
