Like the A320, the A340 is the first aircraft in it's class to have a single retractable belly gear with an FVG and FLDM. Retract the gear and your in the air and raising the gear will un-retract it. There is a number of new features ;-
Once again, much like the A320, we have gone back to the original engine CFM-56B. This engine, over 30 years old, is also being upgraded to a 32 valve design. The engine layout is very similar, but seems to be quieter, more efficient, and for some reason spits less droop but again due to the older engine design.
As a commercial airliner, the Boeing Company makes the A320 series of jet airliners and has produced a total of 866 aircraft to date. Designed by Airbus, being a relatively new airliner, many of its features, such as direct engine fuel injection, and \"universal\" modular design, are still going through testing.
This means that we will have a very advanced Airbus simulator that will become more and more promising with the release of more and more essential features and systems. The Class 100 certification route for Dreamliners will certainly be the one that gives the biggest boost to the satisfaction of our pilots! 7211a4ac4a
