How to build the largest aircraft in the world ?
Airline companies want to buy stretched versions of the largest airliners we have today. Even if the manufacturers are capable of constructing larger versions, the increased wingspan is not manageable for our airports. But the StratosLiner concept makes it possible to build larger (longer) aircraft, with a relatively small wingspan.

The above image on the left shows StratosLiner with the same length as the overall length of the Airbus A380 (the largest aircraft in the world, in production). Both aircraft have the same wing area but StratosLiner's wingspan is significantly smaller. The image on the right side shows a 41 per cent stretched version of StratosLiner, with a wingspan still smaller than that of the Airbus A380. But StratosLiner's wing area is twice as large! This is the way Sir Richard Branson's dream about 1000+ passengers could become a reality...   However, this concept is not limited to target large airliners and heavy cargo planes. The only field of use hard to imagine for StratosLiner is as a hydroplane.

A CFD Analysis of StratosLiner May 2017  (100 pages)
A comprehensive aerodynamic analysis of StratosLiner's wings, in comparison to the wings and tail fins of the Airbus A380. Two embodiments of StratosLiner are examined, both are still in the early design stage, i.e. there is a lot of potential to improvements. Main findings: StratosLiner's wings produce 12.1% more Lift, the Lift/Drag is 13.14% better and the Efficiency of Fuel Conversion is 24.79% better, compared to the A380.

StratosLiner - a comprehensive CFD study April 2019   (48 pages)
A comprehensive aerodynamic analysis of a considerably improved version of StratosLiner, displaying qualities and revealing teething issues. Further improvements and implementation of new technology options are discussed.
