Airbus A220


#101

Never in my wildest dreams would these things exist

Why don’t Airbus just call it the C-series still?


#102

The CSeries needs to be fitted in the Airbus brand. That’s only possible by changing the name to Airbus A220-100/300.


#103

Airbus C-Series 200? I dunno. Sounds kinda cooler?


#104

No, they chose to name it A and not C because the Chinese manufacturer Comac is releasing aircraft with a C, like the Comac C919.


#105

This is the best future for the Cseries/A220 family, cause Airbus has a final assembly installations in Alabama, so the aircraft is considered an American aircraft and don’t takes the 300% tariff US government put on the cseries! So now delta and American Airlines can buy it without the tariff. This airplane size is the future of aviation.


#106

Does it have the “retard” call out? Or is it the only Airbus without it?


#107

I don’t know. If not, maybe they’ll add it to insult their pilots xD


#108

For every pilot in IF it’s unnecessary at the moment, let’s hope a bigger variety of sounds and more specific call outs get added to the game.


#109

I was not talking about IF, I meant the real world aircraft, I was just curious if Airbus changed that…


#110

I know but I speculated if we can get it added to IF


#111

It’s way too late to re-certify a new system. I suspect the current system will be here to stay.

Stormed? Took over? What did they “take over”? They put a new paint job on the plane and told their marketing team to call it something different. It’s still the same plane.


#112

No, I was not saying they changed it, I was just asking to see if it already had it since I was not sure if Bombider did that…


#113

No, they don’t do that. Pilots have noted Bombardier’s sidestick has a much different feel to Airbus’ sidestick. It reportedly feels less detached from the aircraft.


#114

there’s a whole feature request for that.


#115

I’m just going to drop this article here…


#116

Well, I knew all the speculation about this was true! But hey they did it for the CS series but Boeing did it for the 717 which was originally the MD-95


#117

I had negative thoughts about the A220 at first. Now , I have many more. I would change my mind to liking the A320 from the 737 if the A220 could go away.


#118

The A220 has nothing to do with you preferring the A320 over the 737. Completely different aircraft.


#119

Airbus announced that they are going to try to modify the A220 cockpit to the point where pilots can get common aircraft type ratings for the A220/A320 series.


#120

So the aircraft is going to rate them? Have they said based one what?
