Is The A380 Powerful?

Hello, was just wondering if anybody knows how the takeoff , climb power, etc of the A380 compares to other large aircraft, like the 747s, 777s, etc?
I have read it will have somewhere around 32000lb of thrust, which sounds like a lot, but i imagine it will be propelling a lot of weight, especially when fully loaded, in hot weather, and so on. Can anybody tell me how well it will compare? Thankyou.

Hopefully the A380 should be equally powered as like most aircraft.

I imagine that the Trent 900's will have more than 32,000 lbs of thrust.

The A388 will have nowhere near the 757's power/weight ratio, but it's not exactly A340-like either  Big grin

Goto http://www.airbus.com/product/a380_planning.asp which will allow you to RMCSFA all A380 data, from aircraft desription to interior arrangements, from airplane performance to pavement data.

Engines will be a choice of RR Trent 900 or GP7000 rated at around 70,000 lbs each. So a total of 280,000 lbs of thrust.

Goto http://www.rolls-royce.com/civil_aerospace/downloads/airlines/trent_900.pdf for RR Trent 900 fact sheet.

I would assume that take-off thrust to MTOW ratio for the A380 will be comparable to the 744. The 777 will have much better power to weight ratio, as would have all twin engined airliners.
