Not sure why Wayne Magor hasn’t got the “reply” function enabled, but just a few comments on his post: The Airbus A380 is at the end of its service life. No it isn’t. They will be flying for years to come. Just because Airbus is ceasing production.
Carrying about 550 passengers - but with capacity for more - over a range of 8,000 nautical miles, the A380 was pitched at the fast-growing Asia and Middle East markets, where airlines were keen.
Airbus’ open approach to collaboration and partnership has been part of its philosophy since the company was created over 40 years ago. In designing new aircraft, Airbus always seeks the input of customers and those who handle the jetliners on a day-to-day basis. One of the best illustrations of this approach was the global working group established when Airbus designed the A380, which.
Business Opinion: The A380 dream crash-lands. The end of the Airbus A380 is not the end of European aircraft manufacturing. It is the result of mistakes that were made many years ago.
Currently the 747-400 is able to operate at airports under Code E classification, although Airbus intended A380 to come under this Code, unfortunately for airports and or Airbus it will be under a Code F. A380 falls into this category due to its wing span of 79.75m. To satisfy Code E criterion the wing span must be no more than 65m, the B747-400 remains Code E with a span of 64.44m. Code E.

The Airbus A380 and Boeing's Dreamliner have expanded the use of composites. Last but not least, this paper has shown some major advanced maintainability design and optimization methodologies in the Airbus A380 program, which have occupied a vital role in assuring that the highly demanding reliability targets of A380 can be met throughout its service life. Since the first flight of the.
A key A380 innovation is the use of an electronic library to largely replace the traditional paper documentation used by pilots. This library allows flight and maintenance crews to easily locate relevant operational information in the various flight manuals, lists and logbooks, while enabling an optimisation of performance and weight-and-balance computations.
The Airbus A380 project was announced in June 1994. Several designs, an East Asian financial crisis and extensive market analysis later, the A380 received its type certificate in 2007. Major sections of the aeroplane are manufactured in France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, before being constructed in one central location.
As an investigation begins into the cause of the engine failure of the Qantas-owned A380 the safety of airliners and air crash data worldwide comes into focus. The crash of the Cuban airliner ATR.
And now there’s the A380, currently the world’s largest airliner, which maker Airbus announced Thursday is being retired after just 12 years in commercial service. The A380 is an engineering.
The airbus A380 is an amazing feat of aviation technology and it never ceases to amaze anyone that sees it. The exterior is only the beginning of the wonders you get to experience when you get to fly in the A380, but the interior never ceases to amaze any passenger that gets to fly in this magnificent plane. Statistics The Airbus A380 has many amazing statistics related to its size and.
The 555 seat, twofold deck Airbus A380 is the world's biggest air transport, effectively obscuring Boeing's 747. The A380 base model is the 555 seat A380-800 (dispatch client Emirates). Potential future models incorporate the 590 ton MTOW 10,410km (5620nm) A380-800f tanker, ready to convey a 150 ton payload, and the extended, 656 seat, A380-900.
Airbus A380 plane crashes. The following are significant events involving the aircraft model. The numbered events are those involving at least one passenger death where the aircraft flight had a direct or indirect role, and where at least one of the dead passengers was not a stowaway, hijacker, or saboteur. The A380 has not had any event involving a passenger death, or any other significant.
Airbus was originally working on the A380F in conjunction with the A380 we know today. Several cargo operators and lessors had even placed orders for a freighter version of the A380. However, the need for more resources devoted towards launching the passenger version led to the A380F’s cancellation. Emirates ended up converting some of the orders of the A380F to A380 passenger versions.During a smoke and fumes event on an Airbus A319-111 (G-EZNM) the pilots’ oxygen masks misted up shortly after donning. This was due to a combination of the environment in which they were stowed.The Airbus A340 is a long-range, wide-body commercial passenger jet airliner that was developed and produced by the European aerospace company Airbus.In the mid-1970s, Airbus conceived several derivatives of the A300, its first airliner, and developed the A340 quadjet in parallel with the A330 twinjet. In June 1987, Airbus launched both designs with their first orders and the A340-300 took its.
