Title: AIRPLANE HAVING A REAR PROPULSION SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to an airplane (1) comprising a fuselage (2) which is elongated in a longitudinal direction X of the airplane, a wing (3) attached to the fuselage in a central portion of the fuselage, and a rear fuselage (21) which is located in the rear of the wing (3) and on which the engines (6) are mounted. The airplane further comprises aerodynamic surfaces, a front horizontal stabilizer unit (4), wing end (5) and wing aileron (31) vertical surfaces, which ensure the stability and the aerodynamic control of the airplane and are rigidly connected to the fuselage (2) or the wing (3) in an arrangement such that none of said aerodynamic surfaces is located in a space (62) of potential projection of debris from the engines (6) in case a rotating portion of one of the engines of the airplane breaks.
