Airbus launched its best-selling single-aisle product line with the A320, which continues to set industry standards for comfort and operating economy on short- to medium-haul routes.
This jumbo passenger airliner jet is also utilized as a private jet for charters by large groups of passnegers or for extra comfort. Apart from a small weight saving, the advantage of Airbus’ fly-by-wire is that as it is computer controlled, an inbuilt flight envelope protection makes it virtually impossible to exceed certain flight parameters such as G limits and the aircraft’s maximum and minimum operating speeds and angle of attack limits.
