TRANSPORT PLANE TYPES

A transport plane is an aircraft intended for the transportation of various goods. Often the same aircraft is a cargo and passenger one, only the equipment changes. Freight airplanes are distinguished by simplified household equipment, increased cargo space, large cargo hatches, a stronger floor, on-board mechanization for loading and unloading.

CONSTRUCTION

A transport aircraft may have the following design features that distinguish it from passenger models. They are designed, to facilitate the loading and discharging:
  • "high-wing" layout (allows to place the cargo as close to the ground as possible)
  • reinforced chassis with bigger quantity of wheels
  • cargo hatches at the bottom and at the top of the fuselage
  • hatches in front of the fuselage ("folding nose") and in the rear ("swinging" or "folding" tail), sometimes combined with a ramp
  • reduced door to the cockpit
  • absence of portholes
