The increase in the dimension of long-haul aircrafts came into conflict with modern aviation infrastructure and led to the search for alternative options for constructively layout circuit solutions in order to deal with this contradiction. A structural-parametric analysis of the influence of infrastructure constraints in the basing of long-haul aircrafts on the choice of alternative options for fuselage layout was carried out. The method of aircraft layout from the virtual mass center is given, which allows us to obtain the aircraft layout from the conditions of infrastructural constraints in the terminal configurations of the modern aviation infrastructure. A method is proposed for the synthesis of new circuit solutions for an aircraft passenger compartment. A geometrical representation of the concept of long-haul aircraft with large passenger capacity made with a drop-shaped fuselage in the aerodynamic balancing scheme “Flying Wing” is given.
