What makes B787 amazing! "No more engine extraction system"

Compressed air to pressurize the cabin is usually supplied through the engines, but the 787 has eliminated the engine extraction system. It uses an electric compressor instead to compress the outside air taken in from the bottom of the fuselage for air conditioning. The elimination of the engine extraction system has also led to improved fuel efficiency.
