Z.A.I. AZ-300 Narrow-Body Airliner
Air Transport meeting Advanced Technology. An Airliner from a professional's hands.

Image

UNIT COST: $55,000,000 (AZ-300-10) - Prices Vary
DPR (Combined): $50,000,000,000

The AZ-300 is a line of narrow-body, twin-engine airliner developed by Zeus Aerospace Industries (ZAI), a subsidiary of Zeus Defense Industries, in cooperation with Sukhoi. Intended to compete with other airliners on the market, such as the Boeing 737 and the Airbus 321, the AZ-300 incorporates advanced technology from ZDI's history of aircraft manufacturing into civilian aircraft. As it was influenced and was built in cooperation with Sukhoi, the AZ-300 tends to be close to the Sukhoi Superjet 100; however, its differences are clear in the enlargement of the original design, ZDI technology and so on.

The AZ-300 line is powered by two of ZDI's CSP-120 turbofan engines. Based on the Sukhoi Superjet's PowerJet SaM146, the CSP-120 is enlarged, powered-up compared to the SaM146, in order to accommodate the increase in airframe size and capacity. Considered a technological marvel, the CSP-120 features several modern characteristics that push the engine ahead of its predecessors: active tip-clearance controls, seven-stage compressors, improved turbines and so on. The two engines, coupled with the AZ-300's aerodynamic design, makes the AZ-300's efficiency - one of the best in its class - possible.

With great efficiency, the AZ-300 effectively fulfills its role as a potent narrow-body, twin-engine airliner. The standard variant, the AZ-300-10, is capable of carrying a maximum of 110 passengers (1-class), while it can carry 88 on a 2-class configuration. Larger variants are able to carry more, in order to compete with other larger aircraft on the market: the AZ-300-20 is capable of carrying up to 132 passengers (1-class), while the CS-300-30 is able to carry a maximum of 150 passengers (1-class) simultaneously.

The AZ-300 incorporates a digital fly-by-wire flight control system, although latest production variants, namely the AZ-300-30, uses a fly-by-light control system used on other ZDI military aircraft. All variants have full-glass cockpits since its introduction in 2009. Digital head-up displays are available. With advanced electronic technology from ZDI's military experience aiding it, the AZ-300 features an array of systems - all of which are jointly managed by the Central Onboard Systems Manager (COSM) - that contribute to much better controlling of the aircraft compared to its predecessors.

Variants

  • AZ-300-10: Standard variant.
  • AZ-300-20: Lengthened derivative from the CS-300-10, made to carry up to 132 passengers.

  • AZ-300-10 VIP: A VIP variant designed from the CS-300-10. Can be used as VIP aircraft for corporate executives, while it can also see service as a military VIP/commander transport aircraft, with few modifications.

  • Cruising Speed: 820 km/h
  • Range (at full passenger payload): 4,500 km
  • Passenger Capacity: 110 passengers (max., 1-class), 88 (2-class)

Pricing and Costs

AZ-500 Starwalker Wide-Body Airliner [MT: ZAI]

Z.A.I. AZ-500 Starwalker Wide-Body Airliner
A Dream Becoming Reality. A Breakthrough in Aviation.

Image

UNIT COST: $200,000,000 (AZ-500-60)
DPR (Combined): $80,000,000,000

The AZ-500 Starwalker is a line of long-range, wide-body airliners developed by Zeus Aerospace Industries (ZAI) and manufactured by ZAI and several other cooperative partners. It is meant to replace mid-size, wide-body airliners such as the famous Boeing 767 and the Airbus A330. Intended to dominate the mid-size civilian airliner market of the 21st century, the AZ-500 features greater fuel efficiency, aerodynamics and usage of composite materials than almost every one of its predecessors. It is a true long-range civilian airliner of the twenty-first century.

The uniqueness of the AZ-500 is evident from the airframe itself. With more than 75% of the airframe (volume-wise) consisting of composite materials, the AZ-500 has successfully cut down its weight compared to its predecessors. In terms of weight, however, the ratio of composite materials will be around 55%. In addition to the active usage of composite materials, the AZ-500 Starwalker uses raked wingtips (an unusual feature not seen on many aircraft), smoother noses, aerodynamic wings, 'chevrons' on engines (lessons learned from NASA's experiments) and so on. The entire aircraft is controlled by a digital fly-by-wire control system, although all production models since 2015 are equipped with a fly-by-light control system instead. Its active usage of electric power is also notable: electrical systems power many of the Starwalker's systems, such as the engine starters, brakes and cabin pressurization.

The extraordinary path forged by the AZ-500 is continued when one delves inside the airframe. The most notable difference inside the airframe is in the windows' size: significantly larger than its predecessors, the AZ-500 features larger windows, which dimensions are 27 x 45 cm, for better passenger view. In addition, while most economy-class cabins have a 3-3-3 formation, the AZ-500 has decided to try the 3-2-3 formation, allowing for more space to be allocated to each seat. This was an action done in consideration of those who have complained that the rather 'tight' economy-class seats are uncomfortable to them.

All these features in the AZ-500 demand propulsion - the electrical power that basically makes the airframe working should be coming from somewhere. The AZ-500 Starwalker is powered by two ZDI CSP-400 turbofan engines, which provide a maximum thrust of around 78,000 lbf (370 kN). Considered on par with the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000, the ZDI CSP-400 is part of what makes the AZ-500 just possible.

Variants

  • AZ-500-60: Standard base variant. Capable of transporting 240 passengers in a three-class configuration, while having a range of around 14,800 kilometers.
  • AZ-500-60T: Freighter version of the AZ-500-60.
  • AZ-500-70: Lengthened variant of the AZ-500, capable of transporting up to 280 passengers in a three-class configuration. Has a range of approximately 15,000 kilometers.
    AZ-500-70T: Freighter version of the AZ-500-70.
  • AZ-500-80: Lengthened and expanded version (wingspans were enlarged as well), being the largest variant of the AZ-500. Capable of transporting 320 passengers, while having a range of about 12,800 kilometers.
  • AZ-500 MRTT (Multi-Role Tanker Transport): Military Transport/Refueling Tanker variant developed from the AZ-500-70. Has same personnel transport capability to the AZ-500-70.
