Calculate your fuel savings and make your aircraft more efficient

The APC has developed a design and performance tool to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. The APC team was charged to identify the airflow around the leading edges and wingtips as possible areas of improvement in design. Based on our wingtip solution to reduce drag and enhance main wing lift, we developed a cross platform solution to enable our customers to calculate the fuel savings and estimate the benefits from our operational improvements.

We support a healthy planet

We have a mission. A team of engineers and technologists brought together and share one vision that will change the world for us and future generations. We are an international business and fast scaling multicultural team, primarily based in Hamburg, with partners across the country.

But we can only identify new challenges, when we listen and work closely together with the young generation. Their affinity with the technologies that have brought us to the edge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution sets them apart from previous generations. Technology has not only shaped the way they live and work, but also created a whole new set of beliefs and aspirations. These values, in turn, will affect their approach to the global challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Hence, the ability of our graduates to consider the rapidly evolving, potentially transformative technologies under various angles is of vital importance to The APC.

Vice versa, teaming up with our experts in their fields, this collaboration enables our company to come up with the best possible solutions and thrive in constantly changing situations to make our visions become reality. Always aiming toward the same goal: to be pioneers in developing new technologies in aerospace. In our opinion, this is the key to support a healthy planet.
