Dear Traveler,

CAIDA (Corporación Aurariano de Investigación y Desarrollo Aeronáutico) is a pioneer in the aerospace industry. Our mission is to make the world just a little bit smaller by bringing people together in a fast, safe, and comfortable way – to ensure the interconnectedness and prosperity of our world.

In order to directly compete with the industry-dominating Raimer und Rathenau Flugzeugwerke, the Aurarian Government approved a merger of the nation’s three largest aviation companies in CLVIII (1977) into one: CAIDA. With Auraria’s best engineers and innovators, bolstered by strong private and public investment, CAIDA sent its first plane into the air just four years later with the AG1-100.

CAIDA’s quick growth as a global powerhouse is the result of the combined effort of decades of innovation, testing the furthest extent of modern technology to provide for the most comfortable, safe travel experience possible. Since CLXII (1981), CAIDA’s commercial aircraft family has grown into the AG1, AG2, AG3, and AG4 Families all built to fulfill the demands of an ever-changing industry. Today, our company is divided into three subdivisions: Commercial Aircraft, Defense and Space, and Helicopters.

As our company grows, we invite you to be a part of our story. We are always open to new opportunities to revolutionize air travel for people across Europe and are willing to gather partners across the globe to accomplish our mission: to make the world just a little bit smaller.

Sincerely,

Current Inventory

These medium to long range, wide-body, twin engine aircraft represent the backbone of the CAIDA fleet. With a range of 5,000 - 13,430 km (2,700 - 7,250 miles) and an ability to hold 70 tonnes of cargo, this family of plane can offer a versatility to airlines across the globe that is tough to match.

Variants:
AG1-300 (typically 277 passengers, 11km/6.3mi range)
AG1-400 (typically 250 passengers, 13.4km/8.3 mi range)


Representing the new flagship airliner of CAIDA, the AG2-900 and AG2-1000 "Cloudcutter" are the premier aircraft of the fleet. These long range, wide-body airliners can make any virtually any flight across the globe with a range of 15km / 8.1 miles and 360 passengers with a fuel efficiency that makes it a must for any transcontinental flight.

Variants:
AG2-900 (typically seats 325 passengers, max range of 8.1mi/15km)
AG2-1000 Cloudcutter (typically seats 366 passengers, max range of 8mi/14.8km)


Consisting of short to medium range, narrow-body planes, the AG3 Family is designed to carry the most passengers, on the most flights, at the most affordable rates. These planes are ideal for commuter and continental routes of high demand. These affordable planes are designed to land from the world’s most bustling cities to its most pristine island airports.

Variants:
AG3-100 (typically seats 150 passengers, max range of 3.3mi/6.1km)
AG3-200 (typically seats 200-230 passengers, max range of 4.6mi/7.4km)
AG3-300 (typically seats 124 passengers, max range of 3.5mi/6.6km)
AG3-400 Hopper (typically seats 130 passengers, max range of 3.1mi/5.7km)


The workhorse of the CAIDA fleet, the A340 is an iconic sight in the air and helped guide SkyTrain to prominence. These long range, four-engine aircraft can carry 440 passengers to a maximum of 12.4mi/16.7km.

Variants:
AG4-200 (typically seats 205 passengers, max range of 6.7mi/12.4km)
AG4-500 (typically seats 440 passengers, max range of 12.4mi/16.7km)

Project P.R.O.X.I.M.A.
Propulsion Redesign and Operational fleXibility Innovation Management for Aviation

Supersonic speed, modular cabin design, all-electric power, transparent cabin walls, pilotless planes, personal jets for everyone – that all sounds great but what is the actual plane of the future? All of these ideas sound fascinating and they will certainly be included in the future of aviation, however what is going to be the next generation of plane that redefines the market in the next twenty-five to thirty years?

These questions are at the forefront of CAIDA’s business model and define our business practice and guide our research and resources. CAIDA’s mission for the next coming decades is not to construct a plane that fits a projected niche but rather to construct a plane with such a high degree of utilization that airlines globally will be able to utilize the aircraft how they see fit to accommodate both long and short-term trends in an ever growing, yet ever dynamic market. Therefore, CAIDA is introducing Project PRÓXIMA. PRÓXIMA represents the research wing of CAIDA Industries and seamlessly connects our company to interested parties globally.

CAIDA’s history is one of collaboration. It’s a company that was brought to life by bringing all relevant parties together to pool resources and unlock doors previously thought impossible. That method has led to boundless success for the company and we are going to do it again. Project PRÓXIMA, in addition to managing the research direction and projections that CAIDA will use, will also facilitate investment into the company to fund the projects of the future. Only together can we achieve the future of Aviation and make this world that much smaller.

Current Project Opportunities

  1. Project PAPG (Propulsión de Aviación de Próxima Generación)
    1. Description: Project PAPG is a redesign of current AG3 Family of aircraft, ideal for regional and commuter flights frequently seen in Westernesse, Gallo-Germania, and Toyou. PAPG seeks to resign the winglets, airframe modifications, and a new advanced engine that in total should provide 15%-25% increase in fuel economy, depending on the cabin configuration.
    2. Program Cost (Estimate): Ptas 1.86 Billion. AG3 Aircraft modified with PAPG are expected to cost an additional Ptas 8.4 million, including Ptas 4.9 million for airframe modification and Ptas 1.3 million for winglet installation.
    3. What is Needed: The redesign of the winglets and carbon fiber cabin modifications are being designed and developed in-house by CAIDA engineers. However, the company is looking to contract developers to produce an engine to meet the needs of PAPG.
    4. Current Status:
      1. Design -> Investment -> Development -> Testing -> Mass Production
  2. The Zero Initiative
    1. Description: Today, there is no innovation without sustainability. The Zero Initiative is the ambition of CAIDA to produce a fully electric commercial airplane. The ultimate goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by 75%, NOx by 90% and noise by 65%. The plane is to replace current turbofan engines with an entirely electric motor while not compromising, in any way, on the safety and security of the aircraft.
    2. Program Cost (Estimate): In early stages of development, as a result CAIDA cannot with a degree of certainly estimate the entire program cost.
    3. What is Needed: Currently, CAIDA is preparing to develop a hybrid aircraft, the AGXH-0, which will feature three traditional turbofan engines with one new full-electric engine. The program requires significant additional research and investment, which CAIDA is working to secure from public-private partnerships globally.
    4. Current Status:
      1. Design -> Investment -> Development -> Testing -> Mass Production
  3. United European Sky ATM Research (UESAR)
    1. Description: UESAR is a collaborative research program designed to modify, improve, and standardize global Air Traffic Management (ATM) to increase the efficiency of global airways. Delays cost airlines billions annually and UESAR’s goal is to digitize air traffic control safely and efficiently to be able to handle significantly higher degrees of air traffic seamlessly.
    2. Program Cost (Estimate): Ptas 4.76 Billion
    3. What is Needed: Cooperation on research and development, investment, and commitments to join the standardization process.
    4. Current Status:
      1. Design -> Investment -> Development -> Testing -> Mass Production
