    - What aircraft company has developed this new design?

    Multipurpose Aircraft with Modular Fuselage (MAMF) is a privately novel aircraft design of Antonio Sanchez, a Spanish inventor.

    - Can the container induct dangerous vibrations on the airframe?

    The container is fixed firmly into the rails for a lock of quadruple zipper that is operated from the head. The lock points of the rack contacts and close firmly with the transversal reinforcements of the container fuselage (frames),  creating a single and rigid unique virtual structure.
    Additionally, 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.

    - Is secure command the aircraft with a folding cable?

    "Fly by wire" is a "state of art" technology implemented in many modern airplanes. In this new model, the only variation is to fold the surplus cable.  Two redundant folded cables type multiconector of high endurance are housed inside the rails. The cable bends automatically in its lodging located in the upper part of the head module.

    - How works the tail module?

    The tail have with purely aerodynamic functions. Is divided in two halves, that rises on the rails drived by electrical actuators. The head and the tail run on the rails, drived by motors.

    - Which are the measures of the container?

    Section should have standard measures in function of each aircraft model. Lenght can be variable.

     

    - How the center of gravity of the airplane is balanced, if this can fly without the central module?

    Obligatorily, head should be a module of certain relative weight.
    With the container loaded, the center of gravity of the airplane is situated on the geometric center of the container. Moving the head on the rails is possible to balance in each flight the center of gravity of the aircraft. In this way, the aircraft can fly in a sure way with or without container.

    - How rigid and heavy should be the rail airframe?

    Modern "state of art" laser welding technologies permit achieve an extra reinforcement in the conventional airframes, and besides it saves weight in the structure . Rails are a non conventional reinforced airframe laser-welded. Inside the hollow rail airframe are installed the lock-zip, cables and hydraulics conduits.
