Airbus A350 XWB - Extra Wide Body
Airbus has plans to launch a series of new model of the twin-engine jet airliner A 350 XWB in the fourth quarter of the year 2014, designed to compete with Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 777.
Unit cost US $ 340,7 million
A 350 family includes three versions: A 350-800, A 350-900, A 350-1000 designed to carry 270, 314 350 and passengers respectively, taking into account the layout of seats in the salons of the division into three classes of comfort. When modifying a single cabin aircraft capacity increases depending on the modification of the 440 550 to people.
The first design work was started in the year 2004, was taken as a basis for model A 330. But customers have rejected the accumulated material and 2006 year there was a new development A 350 XWB (Extra Wide Body) to the project task to surpass the efficiency and maintenance costs pattern main competitor Boeing 787 with the manufacture of the fuselage and wings of the same technology that is used in the manufacture of Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Development costs A model 350, totaled experts predict about 15 billion. Dollars. A first prototype took to the air 350 14 2013 June at Toulouse-Blagnac Airport which is located in France.
Modifications A 350 be put into operation in stages: in the fourth quarter 2014 years- A 350-900, 2016 in the middle years- A 350-800 and 2017 godu- A 350-1000.
For Model A 350 developed a new wide fuselage cross section, which allows you to install from the 8 10 up seats in the same row, thereby to vary the capacity of the passenger compartment.

On the liner installed on 2 jet engine Trent XWB, different capacity for each modification of the liner. Trent XWB engine is equipped with a fan diameter 300 cm and has an original form of the new design. It is more economical, which saves up to 10-15% fuel compared with similar samples from other companies. Through the use of original duct systems, achieved a special acoustic mode dispersion of sound, reducing sound pressure in the cabin.
To support the work of all systems A 350, the liner is equipped with an auxiliary installation of Honeywell 331 APU, which supplies air to the different systems of life and aircraft units.

To supply instruments and short-term lighting of the cabin installed nickel-cadmium batteries.
For the operation of the aircraft used avionics and navigation equipment of the French company Thaies Group.
To implement the production program for the manufacture of aircraft A 350 based international program of co-operation and investment, 10 built new plants in Western Europe and in the United States.

In the production of the fuselage and wings of the technology used by Boeing with carbon fiber and composite materials, the content of which reaches 53%. It is also widely used aluminum alloys Al / Al-Li- 19%, titanium Ti- 14%, steel-6%.
It increased the size of the cross section of the fuselage from the 5.64 m (A 330 / 340) to m at A 5.97 350, which makes it possible to improve comfort for passengers during the flight.
A special feature of the new wings are 350 forms made of composite material, allowing to increase the cruising speed when flying to 903 km / h.

Key Features airliner A 350-900, the implementation of which is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2014 years. The dimensions of the aircraft are: the length of the m-66.89, 64.8 scope krylev- meters. Wing area ravna- 460 square. meters. Maximum lifting height - 12.19 kilometers. Maximum takeoff weight-268 tons. Cruising speed is achieved 903 km / h. Maximum range with passengers and luggage is -14350 kilometers. Fuel -138 tons.
The decision by Airbus to develop a model family A 350, a class of models Boeing 787 and Boeing 777 according to many experts, it was very risky, but on the other hand due to intense competition, will be introducing new technologies and improving the design of the aircraft, which undoubtedly will have a positive effect.
