The Airbus A320neo (new engine option) family is a narrow-body jet-airliner based on the previous A320ceo and is produced by Airbus. In 2006 Airbus started the A320 enhance program as an improvement targeting fuel efficiency and aerodynamic refinements. The re-engined A320neo made its first flight in September 2014 upgraded with two different choice engines and wingtip winglets as standard. With the new design, it is up to 20% more fuel-efficient than the previous A320ceo family. The first A320neo rolled out of the Toulouse factory in July 2014.
The Airbus A320neo typical passenger seat amount is somewhere around 195 including 27 of first-class seats depending on airliner variants. The maximum take-off weight being 79,000 kg (174,200 lb) includes a maximum payload of 20,000 kg (44,100 lb) of passengers, luggage, and fuel. Take-off length as full allowed load is 1,951 meters (6,400 feet). Normal cruise speed of 450 knots (833 km/h, Mach 0.78) the typical range of flight is 3,500 nautical miles (6,500 km).
The Airbus A320neo is flyable in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Deluxe Editions. There’s an excellent freeware mod by FlyByWire Simulations, which increases the realism of the Airbus A320neo that’s included with MSFS. I highly recommend installing this mod before starting to study the A320neo. Updates for this mod are released regularly, so check FlyByWire’s GitHub download page and release notes from time to time. Below there’s a new Ground School video for Cold & Dark Start if still unfamiliar with the A32NX.
