"Surviving in a plane crash is possible. While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor", said Vladimir Tatarenko, an aviation engineer.

Tatarenko is the mastermind to have devised this new design and has been working on the same since three years. Parachutes are attached on the roof of the plane that open up as soon as the cabin is detached.

There are also rubber tubes at the bottom to provide the cushion against the impact of water while landing.

"The existing technology of using of Kevlar and carbon composites for the fuselage, wings, flaps, spoilers, ailerons, tail will be used during the design," he explained. "It allows to partly compensate the weight of parachute system."

Storage space underneath the cabin

The design also includes the mechanism of preserving the luggage of the passengers, which is by using the storage space beneath the cabin.

Skeptical responses

Some are skeptical about the practical utilization of this design. One person said, "Of the millions of flights a year, less than 500 people die worldwide a year from plane crashes."

Potential risk of landing

There are a few doubts as to the safety of the pilot, the possibility of the cabin getting smashed into buildings or mountains, and the impact of this cabin on the rest of the plane. "This whole concept dramatically weakens the airframe because now you have joints and fittings to connect a fuselage and a body together where once you had a whole fuselage to reinforce the airframe", someone commented.

But, people are agreeing to it.

But, people are agreeing to it.

A questionnaire conducted by the inventor had found that people are ready to pay more for this level of security in their aircraft. But, the plane would not save anyone if it explodes from the inside or comes under a rocket attack.
