Airbus A320

 

With a total of more than 6500 planes delivered up to now and a rising number of orders the A320 family is the most successful program of Airbus. The best selling member of this family is the A320 itself with the A319 being second.

The original aircraft is available with different engine types, for the model plane the nacelle of the IAE V2500 engine has been chosen. This good flying plane can also be powered by EDFs. A gyro should be used on rudder to improve flight characteristics in case of engine failure.
