  • - CONCLUSION

  • The container is conformed as a structure of conventional fuselage with squared interior section and standard measures. It has four retractile wheels in the base to facilitate the deposit on the ground and to move in the load and discharge operation. It also has a sliding door in their previous part, for the load and unload as for the physical communication with the head of the aircraft. In the union faces with the head and the tail has two closings operated handly or electrically. These closings assure the unions airtightness and reinforce the solidity of the integral structure. The container have in the upper face two longitudinal and parallel bays where lodge the rails firmly.

    The aircraft can give off the container (2) and to deposit it on the ground in an autonomous way, without external aid, as well as hoist again and fix a new container with the rails (4). Four hydraulic arms hoisting and lock the container. The container is fixed firmly into the rails for a lock of quadruple zipper that is operated from the head. The containers can also be deposited directly on a vehicle carry-containers conventional specially designed for this task. This allows to the aircraft to exchange different types of container in a quick and simple way, in the same areas of parking of the airports, as well as that the containers can be transported inside the airports, between two airports, or between the airport and any point of terrestrial destination.
