Ready to fly - Episode 2: "Getting ready for take-off"

July 10, 2023 Innovation

The captain has just announced the aircraft's imminent takeoff. The engines begin to thrum and Alexis' torture is about to begin. He asks Inès how such a heavy machine can possibly achieve what is, to him, the impossible feat of taking off and not dropping out of the sky. This is Inès' cue to explain the role of the engines, nacelles and landing gear, as the plane takes off.


1. Sit back and fasten your seatbelts, the plane is about to take off !

2. Engines ready for any eventuality

3. Electric motors are better for everyone
