New plane designs move towards a greener future.  With the availability of oil dwindling, a group of savvy engineers has begun designing fuel efficient planes.  The designs are quite futuristic.

Several routes are being explored: biofuels, lighter construction materials and more efficient engines.  We won’t be flying commercially on these bad boys for a couple years, but it sure is interesting to peer into the looking glass and see what’s coming down the road!

NASA may have shut down it’s space shuttle program, but that’s not keeping them out of the air.  They have joined the host of companies designing a next-gen aircraft.

With the general expenditure for aviation fuel each year at $39 billion (bee-lee-on), these new aircrafts will be a welcome addition to our skies.

This is all rather exciting.  But fuel savings aside, can we get a little more leg room back in economy class?
