FlightFactor A350
« on: September 22, 2014, 07:07:35 AM »
Hello, hello

FlightFactor announced a few days ago the work on their next product for X-Plane: the Airbus A350. Not only this will be the latest release for FlightFactor but it is also the latest "release" by Airbus :D.

The A350 is a long-range, twin engine, wide-body aircraft that'll replace the A330 and the A340. It's rival is the B787 and the B777 series, and it is the first Aibus to use carbon fiber polymer for both fuselage and wing structure. It can carry 440 to 550 passengers (max).

As with any Airbus aircraft, the plane is a flying computer and the electronics bundle will be amazing. For those who don't know FLightFactor, it is a "small" X-Plane add-on firm created when Ramzzess aviation design joined forces with Philipp Munzel avionics. Ramzzess aviation design takes care of the design and flight characteristics while Philipp Munzel is an avionics expert. From their programming skill came the B777-200LR and the B757-200 for X-Plane, some of the best X-Plane add-ons on the market. Hopefully, the A350 will be able to take full advantage of the new v10.30 X-Plane features.

The A350 is ready for the beta testing already, so we'll have this plane in our hangar pretty soon (I don't take beta versions). In reality, the plane was indirectly designed by its customers, when they rejected a remake project of the A330 in 2004. There are already 750 orders for this gem.

Passengers: 276 - 369 (2-class setup A350-800 to A350-1000)
Max cargo weight: 65.3 t - 104.3 t* (A350-800 to A350-1000)
Cruise speed: M.85 (~487 kts)
Range: 8260 Nm - 7990 Nm
Ceiling: 43100 ft
Engines: Rols Royce Trent XWB -79 to 97
Thrust: 35788 kgf to 43998 kgf

*the empty weight in these calculations was the manufacturer's empty weight, so these numbers may suffer small diminishing from customer equipment

Oh, and it can touch the transonic range at a max mach number of M.89.

:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D can hardly wait

I've put some screenshots here so enjoy.
