Sat Jan 08, 2000 4:50 am

Will the A3XX have fly-by-wire controls like its predesessors? What type powerplants will be used and how fast will the powerplants enable it to fly?

This information comes from the A3XX CD:

The A3XX will be fly-by-wire, it will have the 'joystick' type controls and the cockpit will be located between the first and second floors so that :-( neither go all the way forward as in a 747.

A3XX-50R and -100:
Rolls Royce TRENT 900 or EA GP7000
289 kN/67,000 lbs. thrust

A3XX-100R, -100F, and -200:
Rolls Royce TRENT 900 or EA GP7000
334 kN/75,000 lbs. thrust

For exact dimmensions of all 3 sizes (-50, -100, and -200) please E-Mail me or, if you'd like it here, I'll put a post up with that information to.
