A321 Progress

Recommended Posts

Marvin Toepfer

I found an article about the easyjet A321NEO. If you look at the pictures, you can see the FA or call station at doors 3 and if you have a look at the aft galley picture, you can see the jumpseat facing in the aisle. On this aircraft, it's installed without the need to bring it out.

It's easier to land than the A320 because it's bigger, therefore more stable on final. Flaring is easy as well, as long as you mind the tailstrike clearance.

Norman won't ring you to say the cabin is ready so that you can't land and consequently tailstrike it :lol:

If you follow the FCOM landing instructions, it's nearly impossible to tailstrike unless you put a lot of back pressure. You'll be fine! The A321 is easy to tame ;)

Idle thrust at 60 ft, flare up 10 deg @ 25-30 ft agl, wait until it screams PITCH PITCH PITCH, then keep jerking it upwards (back and forth as if you were pumping the stick for a smooth greaser but in this case for a perfectly safe tailstrike). The pumping will arrest the airspeed, therefore you will get 10kn slower than vRef and hit the runway with the tail. A smooth tailstrike ;)

You can practice with the A320. Instead of 10 deg pitch up, go for 13 or above. Works wonderfully well ;)

One of our beta testers commented to me just now that we have not provided any news on the A321-X progress for the past few days, so here it goes:

"We're working very hard to get it to you asap."

You see, we're at one of those times where beta testing is going well, but the work involves code fixes mostly, so there's nothing really to report. However, I wanted to make him happy, so I posted that news for you, to say that we're one day closer than we were yesterday!

(Let's see now how much flak I will get for doing this and regret it for the next times to come :P).

Oh- and there are two new buttons added and a knob. (comment intentionally vague, so we can run all sorts of guesses for fun :D).

Nice! cheers for the update, hopefully nothing major gets broken between now & when you guys have got a planned release date. hopefully we will start seeing A321 X photos emerge

Question for you Lefteris. How many lines of code are we talking for an A320 or A321?

How much accumulated time do you think the company has built up creating this plane?

I’m just fascinated by it all!

If one is respectiful in how one treats said knob, it shouldn't be too delicate.

The extra buttons have to be related to the extra  fuel tanks. As for the knob,  it could be anyone. ermm, anything, I mean

Now that would really be something. I asked about a hud when the 320 came out for fsx, but they said it was very low priority since so few a320 actually use it.
