Boeing 777-200, Airbus Industries has out done itself creating a beautiful and fuel efficient flying machine capable of delivering passengers in safety and comfort well into the 21st Century and possibly beyond. Included in this package you will find the Airbus House scheme (With and without SATCOM), Air Canada, Cathay Pacific and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS - with SATCOM) liveries. All textures have been modified in DXT-3 format for crisp visuals without comprimising frame rates. The panel has been aliased to the FS-X default Airbus A321 (due to no A330 panel available for FS-X to date). A magnificient A330 sound package by Steven Persson has been included for authenticity. This file is for FS-X ONLY!* * * * * INSTALLATION * * * * *If your Flight Simulator X is located in C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator X, extract the A330_300_FSX.zip file to C:.If your flight simulator resides elsewhere or is named differently, extract the A330_300_FSX.zip file to a temporary directory and mode the folders named "SimObjects" & "Effects" to your Flight Simulator X directory.* * * * * AIRBUS A330-300 HISTORY * * * * *The Airbus A330 is a large-capacity, wide-body, medium-to-long-range commercial passenger airliner manufactured by Airbus. It was developed at the same time as the four-engined A340. Airbus intended the A330 to compete directly in the ETOPS (Extended-range Twin-engine Operation Performance Standards) market, specifically with the Boeing 767. The A330's fuselage and wings are virtually identical to those of the smaller A340 variants, although it has different engines. The A330 basic fuselage design is inherited from the Airbus A300, as is the nose/cockpit section and the fly-by-wire system and flightdeck from the A320. By the end of May 2006 a total of 574 A330 had been ordered and 413 delivered.The A330-300 was developed as replacement for the A300. It is based on a stretched A300-600 fuselage but with new wings, stabilisers and new fly-by-wire software. The A330-300 carries 295 passengers in a three-class cabin layout (335 in 2 class and 440 in single class) over a range of 10,500 km (5,650 nautical miles). It has a large cargo capacity, comparable to a Boeing 747. Some airlines run overnight cargo-only flights after daytime passenger services. This variation is powered by two Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines. All engines are ETOPS-180 min rated. It entered service in 1993. The direct Boeing equivalent is the Boeing 777-200. The A330-300 will be replaced in the Airbus lineup by the A350-900 XWB, currently predicted to fly in 2011.* * * * * SPECIFICATIONS * * * * *Aircraft dimensions A330-200 A330-300 Overall length 58.8 m 63.6 m Height (to top of horizontal tail) 17.40 m 16.85 m Fuselage diameter 5.64 m 5.64 m Maximum cabin width 5.28 m 5.28 m Cabin length 45.0 m 50.35 m Wingspan (geometric) 60.3 m 60.3 m Wing area (reference) 361.6 m 361.6 m Wing sweep (25% chord) 30 degrees 30 degrees Wheelbase 22.2 m 25.6 m Wheel track 10.69 m 10.69 m Basic operating data Engines two CF6-80E1 or PW4000 or RR Trent 700 two CF6-80E1 or PW4000 or RR Trent 700 Engine thrust range 303-320 kN 303-320 kN Typical passenger seating 253 (3-class) / 293 (2-class) 295 (3-class) / 335 (2-class) Range (w/max. passengers) 12,500 km 10,500 km Max. operating Mach number 0.86 M 0.86 M Bulk hold volume (Standard/option) 19.7 / 13.76 m 19.7 / 13.76 m Design weights Maximum ramp weight 230.9 (233.9 ) t 230.9 (233.9) t Maximum takeoff weight 230 (233) t 230 (233) t Maximum landing weight 180 (182) t 185 (187) t Maximum zero fuel weight 168 (170) t 173 (175) t Maximum fuel capacity 139,100 l 97,170 l Typical operating weight empty 119.6 t 122.2 (124.5) t Typical volumetric payload 36.4 t 45.9 t
