Airbus A320-214


The medium-range jet airliner Airbus A320 entered service in 1988. It is the first model of the A320 family, whose members differ in fuselage length mainly. The shortest family member is the A318, the longest is the A321. The A320 has a maximum take-off weight of 78,000 kg (172,000 lbs) and can carry a maximum of 180 passengers. The A320 was the first commercial airliner that used a digital fly-by-wire control system. The mechanical connection between the flight controls and control surfaces is replaced by a combination of sidesticks, flight control computers and actuators. The cockpit features digital instrument displays for all flight and engine data, analog instruments are provided as a backup only.

Depending on the repaint the A320 comes with Sharklets or wing-tip fences.
