Short Introduction of Airbus A350 Family

The Airbus A350 XWB is a family of long-range, twin-engine wide-body jet airliners developed by European aircraft manufacturer Airbus. The A350 is the first Airbus aircraft with both fuselage and wing structures made primarily of carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer. Its variants seat 280 to 366 passengers in typical three-class seating layouts. The A350 is positioned to succeed the A340, and compete with the Boeing 787 and 777.

The A350 was originally conceived in 2004, pairing the A330’s fuselage with new aerodynamics features and engines. In 2006, Airbus redesigned the aircraft in response to criticism from several major prospective customers and renamed it the A350 XWB (extra wide body). Development costs are estimated at €11 billion (US$15 billion or £9.5 billion). As of March 2017, Airbus had received 821 orders for A350s from 46 customers worldwide. The prototype A350 first flew on 14 June 2013 from Toulouse, France. Type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency was received in September 2014 and certification from the Federal Aviation Administration two months later. On 15 January 2015, the A350 entered service with Qatar Airways, the type’s launch customer.


Why Airbus A350?

According to Airbus…

Airbus A350-900

"The A350-900 is the cornerstone member of Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB Family, which is shaping the future of medium, long and ultra-long haul travel."

This jetliner accommodates 325 passengers in a standard three-class configuration, and its state-of-the-art comfort and amenities ensure that everyone on board has a pleasant flight."

Airbus A350-1000

"Designed with airlines’ priorities in mind, the A350 XWB meets the multiple challenges of high fuel prices, rising expectations from passengers and increasing environmental concerns."

"As with the other A350 XWB Family members, Airbus’ A350-1000 brings together the very latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies for a 25 per cent step change in fuel efficiency compared to its current long-range competitor."

My opinion regarding Airbus A350?

This Jetliner would be a great addition to Infinite Flight Simulator. Wouldnt be surprised to see one of the newest aircraft type flying in Infinite Flight in the future. This aircraft would also make Airbus Family more complete in Infinite Flight. Share your thoughts about this aircraft family below ;)

Definitely voting for this, I LOVE the A350.


#3

This has already been requested


#4

@Collin_Mihalovich Check this ;)


#5

I always love to see users take the time to correctly format and execute a #features request like the one depicted above on this thread. This definitely has my current vote!


Airbus A330 Rework
#6

Wow @SingaporeAirlines like the way you indicated the specs of each aircraft ;)


#7

Excellent job with the formatting. Glad to see more people taking the time to do it right. It would be nice to see a general template for #features requests so that it is followed for aircraft requests. 👍🏼


#8

Thanks for the praises all. I would be detailed and put more efforts like this one in my requests in the future =)


@Blizzard @DeerCrusher @Kizzyjet

I got the informations from both Airbus and Wikipedia sites


#9

I’ve done the same thing as you but not to the scale of what you did. I hope that others will see this as an example for future requests. Rather than slapping a photo on and saying “We need this… vote now.” 😂


#10

The A350 is beautiful, I’ve had a chance to see it in real life.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on adding an A310 to IF?

This is one of the greatest airliners ever built and had many First for a commercial airliner. It’s also one of only two Airbus commercial aircraft that has a yoke!


#11

Here’s the link for the Airbus A310 request. Give the topic a vote to show some support for A310’s presence ;)


#12

Will do thanks a lot!


#13

You are welcome. I’m happy to help 😊


#14

@SingaporeAirlines where the A350-800?


#15

A350-800’s fate is unclear now. Although most likely it would be stopped as Asiana is the only remaining customer.


#16

Yay,Someone made a new request for A350!


#17

Looks cool! Take my vote!


#18

The old one was already old so I made a new one and added the aircraft’s specifications in case its needed for the developers ;)


#20

They said it could be coming soon already, So im expecting it in a few months after global


#21

I definitely want this!
