Hi,

The LCX has been developed in response to a request for proposal for an aircraft
with 153 passenger capacity and a range of 3000 nautical miles. The goals of the LCX are
to provide an aircraft which will achieve the stated mission requirements at the lowest cost
possible, both for the manufacturer and the operator. Low cost in this request is defined
as short and long term profitability. To achieve this objective, modem technologies
attributing to low-cost operation without greatly increasing the cost of manufacturing
were employed. These technologies include hybrid laminar flow control and the use of
developing new manufacturing processes and philosophies. The LCX will provide a
competitive alternative to the use of the Airbus A319/320/321 and the Boeing 737 series
of aircraft. The LCX has a maximum weight of 150,000 lb. carried by a wing of 1140 f12
and an aspect ratio of 10. The selling price of the LCX is 31 million in 1994 US dollars.
