4.3/5 (722)

The Airbus A318 is the smallest member of the A320 family, famously nicknamed the “baby airbus” for its size. Its first flight was in January 2002. The A318 in this package has 2 versions. The passenger version and the business jet version known as the A318CJ ‘elite’. All powered with CFM engines.

Features:This package includes over two dozen liveries for some real world operators and one for a fictional. The A318CJ ‘elite’ has its private interior, made with the blueprints of a real A318CJ ‘elite’. The British Airways A318 has its own all business class cabin interior. The rest of passenger version have a standard passenger interior cabin.

  • Detailed aircraft interior matching each airline, with night lighting , Animated passengers, animated cabin crew in all aircraft increasing the immersion while you fly.
  • Systems and flight deck are built on the default Asobo A320neo and modified to implement additional systems such as ECAM takeoff and landing memos and other ECAM messages and pages ENG, BLEED, PRESS, ELEC, HYD, APU, COND, DOOR, WHEEL, F-CTL pages, increasing the overall functionality of the aircraft flight deck.
  • Cockpit ambience modified for all real world operators, having the flight deck different for each specific aircraft and specific aircraft registration..
  • Tablet that controls payload, fuel, animated passengers, cabin lights, ground service equipment (stairs etc). Weather information, Metar and normal checklists.
  • Wing flex
  • Flight dynamics and performance characteristics based on the A318.
  • Customized ground service equipment such as stairs, air conditioner, ground power unit, baggage loaders etc, on demand whilst on the ground with the tablet. New on update version 2.1**** 1-IRS alignment 2-Customized Autopilot VNAV behavior.

The A318 is a twin-engine, low-wing, narrow-body airliner by European aerospace manufacturer Airbus. The fourth iteration of the A320 family, it is the shortest and overall smallest airframe of the group, with a length of 103 feet, 2 inches, and a maximum seating capacity of 132 passengers.

Manufactured from 2001 to 2013, the A318 ranks as the least produced of the A320 family, with just 80 made. The jet took its first flight on January 15, 2002, and entered service in July of 2003 with its first customer, Frontier Airlines. The A318 is notable for its steep approach capability. It is the largest commercial aircraft that the European Aviation Safety Agency has certified for steep approach operations.

The A318 features a swept main with a span of 111 feet, 11 inches, a retractable tricycle landing gear, and a conventional tail. Engineers extended the length of the jet’s vertical stabilizer over that of others of the A320 family to compensate for lost yaw authority due to shortening the length of the fuselage. The A318’s digital flight control software allows the aircraft to perform landing approaches with descent angles of up to 5.5 degrees, 2.5 degrees greater than normal, using the wing’s spoilers for increased drag.

The A318 is powered by two wing-mounted high-bypass turbofans, a pair of Pratt & Whitney PW6000 or CFM International CFM56-5B engines. It has a top speed of 541 miles per hour, cruises at 514 mph, and a range of 3,567 miles.

The most aerodynamically nimble member of the Airbus A320 lineage of airliners, pilots can push skills to their very limits in the agile A318. From within its advanced flight deck that comprises an all-glass cockpit and side-stick control, aviators can test their abilities with approaches into the most confined airports throughout the globe, launch again onto a steep climb-out, and then cruise miles above the planet’s surface and enjoy wide-open vistas, day or night.
