Airbus A350 XWB
The Airbus A350 XWB (Xtra-Wide-Body) is a European family of long-range, twin-engine wide-body jet airliners. It first flew on June 14, 2013, with the first production model, the A350-900, starting service on January 15, 2015, with Qatar Airlines. The longer A350-1000 entered service for the first time on February 24, 2018, with the same airline.
The A350-900ULR (Ultra Long Range) made its maiden flight on April 23, 2018. Based on the A350-900 with increased MTOW, fuel capacity and extended winglets increasing the range to 18,000 km (11,185mi). 2963 km (1841 mi) more than the standard A350-900, able to fly halfway around the world.
First envisaged as an A330 fuselage with new aerodynamics features and engines, but due to the negative response from airlines, Airbus designed an entirely new aircraft. Named the A350 XWB (Extra Wide Body,) it has a broader fuselage cross-section, allowing seating arrangements up to ten-abreast for a maximum seating capacity of 440–475 depending on the model. Passenger models will have a range of 14,816 km (8,000 nmi ) or higher. The A350 competes with the Boeing 787 and 777.
The A350 is the first Airbus aircraft to made primarily of carbon fibre composites. Other materials used in the construction of the airframe include aluminium, aluminium-lithium alloy, titanium and steel. The composite fuselage provides higher cabin pressure and humidity, and lower maintenance costs.
The new composite wings are of a cantilever design low mounted on the fuselage. Swept back at 31.9° with the last 4.4 m (14 ft) curved upwards to form a winglet. The wing has a trailing-edge high-lift design, similar to the Airbus A380, which closes the gap between the trailing edge and the flap with the spoiler. The tail unit is a swept back cantilever structure with variable incident tailplane and separately controlled elevators.
The undercarriage is a standard tricycle type with a two-wheeled nose and depending on the model a four or six-wheeled main unit under each wing. The A350-900 has four-wheel bogies with the higher weight A350-1000 and A350-900R a six-wheel bogie.
The flight deck has a glass cockpit, side-stick and digital fly-by-wire controls. The instrument panel has six liquid crystal displays along with a head-up display. The A350’s integrated modular avionics (IMA) will manage up to 40 functions including undercarriage, fuel, pneumatics, cabin environment and fire detection.
The Airbus A350 XWB uses two Rolls-Royce Trent XWB turbofan engines. Developed by Rolls-Royce from the Trent 1000, exclusively for the A350.
