NAIA Renova
Check out a sleek and efficient take on The Lego Company’s jetliner: the Renova!
About this creation



As part of a series of showcasing archive creations, the National Aerospace Intelligence Agency of Islandasia (NAIA Islandasia) would like to introduce to you the Renova.



In recent times NAIA Islandasia has studied how the Lego Company’s LC-7893 aircraft might be able to be transformed into a more realistic model with increased capacity, performance, and economical efficiency. To keep up with Islandasia’s ever-increasing demand for high-volume air traffic, the NAIA Renova – a minifig take on the Embraer ERJ series or Bombardier CRJ series – was born.



The Renova is your typical mid-range jet airliner. In a one-class configuration, it comfortably seats 24 passengers plus a miniature galley and a single lavatory. This particular model, developed in 2009, is properly referred to as the Renova New Generation (NG) because the originally Renova actually dates back to 2005; unfortunately, it was never documented so it cannot be referenced to.



If the fuselage had been designed without using The Lego Company’s 8-wide fuselage, it would have been 9 studs wide to provide a 3-across seating arrangement. With only 8 studs, the most that can be configured is a 2-across seating arrangement. Nevertheless, the Renova is very economically efficient for its size and provides more than enough cargo and passenger space to be considered a decent mid-range commercial aircraft.



How your airline will benefit by operating the NAIA Renova:

• Extended fuselage allows more capacity and individual legroom
• Raised engines reduce ground noise and debris engine intake
• Sleek design reduce drag and boosts performance capabilities
• Considerably small size enables wide operational variations
• T-tail configuration improves efficiency and performance
• The Renova is easier to fly and feature more reliable and advanced electronics
• Heating and cooling systems allow safe operation through fog, dust, and ice
• Easy assembly reduces production delays and cuts prices
• Interior design is top-of-the-line with an enjoyable atmosphere
• Better performance, cost, and fuel efficiency reduces operational costs






The first Renova NG was rolled out in 2009. A number of model variations have been considered (no different dimensions, just different interiors). When questioned by news reporters concerning The Orbit, a similar NAIA airplane, NAIA Administrator Stephen Abbott explained that “Using the fuselage pieces from the Lego Company’s set #7893 limits alteration to length alone, and there is no logical reason to alter the length without changing anything else. Shortened variations will not be introduced because a capacity of less than 24 passengers is productively undesirable for such a large fuselage, and for safety reasons we want the aircraft to remain with at least two entryways.”



Ideas for two-class and VIP configurations have been discussed. Though no freight versions have been discussed up to this point, the Greenwood Fire Department has been working with NAIA to design an amphibious tanker model. Furthermore, a military variant entitled the Renova DRA (Defensive Reconnaissance Aircraft) has been under development.



Since its release three years ago, the Renova NG has proved to be a very successful aircraft both in the Islandasia and international market. Though such 21st Century aircraft prove to be of little interest to planets outside Islandasia’s home planet of Mikrosheison, it is still a much admired mechanical and technological achievement and only ceased production last year after a total of 1,000 roll-outs.

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner Hi Stephen:), very nicely done! What really makes the model beautiful is that you were able to make the fuselage so long, and, corresponding to the long fuselage, the long engines! Great and a lot more realistic than the original sets! One suggestion: if I were you, I´d redo the main gear a little bit... Best regards, Steffen
Thanks a ton, Steffen! It's good to hear from you; thanks for the tips!
