Lower Weights Equals Lower Operating Costs.
The Zephyrs single piece composite fuselage is one of many weight saving technologies, eliminating the structural, electrical and systems splices and providing a forty percent reduction in operational empty weight over the B777. This significant weight savings substantially reduces fuel burn and other operational costs. Some of the many weight saving technologies includes: “No Box” electronics and the incorporation of all pipes, ducts, and conduits into the aircraft structure.
