The folding and unfolding of the wing will take no more than 20 seconds.
The US authorities allowed Boeing to use folding wings. First, it will allow the aircraft to fit into the gates of many hangars: the tips of their wings will rise up in front of the parking lot.
About this writes Chronicle.Info with reference to BFM.RU.
According to the calculations of the developers, the folding and unfolding of the wing will take no more than 20 seconds.
The technology has other uses: the longer the wing, the longer the aircraft can plan and the less fuel it burns. The fuel savings in this case can be almost 13%. Folding wings Boeing will make specifically for the model passenger liner model 777X.

The advantages of folding wings will be appreciated by passengers: during landing, it will become much quieter. NASA experts see in the folding wings the technology of the future, with which one can go even further - to make wings of special polymeric material, which has so-called shape memory. This should reduce both the cost of production and the risk of breakage.
