AIRBUS | General Discussion

Airbus A30X is expected to replace the A320. Announced at first for 2017, it was now expected to be available by 2024/2025. Several concepts are considered but the rear mounted engines seem to be a permanent feature. According to the french newspaper La Tribune, both single-aisle and twin-aisle configurations are considered and might coexist.

La Tribune, March 29 2010 :
Quote:
Airbus prépare en secret son futur A30X pour succéder à l'A320

EADS-Airbus a récemment présenté l'évolution prévue de la famille A320, de l'ajout d'ailettes réalisé actuellement à une nouvelle motorisation dans quelques années avant un tout nouveau modèle, l'A30X d'ici quinze ans.


Le voile se lève peu à peu sur les projets d'Airbus, la grande filiale du groupe européen d'aéronautique, d'espace et d'armement EADS, pour préparer la succession de son best seller l'A320 de 150 places.

Le nom de code du projet est connu : A30X. Il a été rappelé ces derniers jours par un député allemand dans le cadre des discussions sur les aides publiques au programme d'Airbus A350, qui doit concurrencer le Boeing B787, et lors des commentaires sur le différend américano-européen devant l'OMC (organisation mondiale du commerce) concernant les soutiens financiers publics à leurs deux avionneurs respectifs.

Cette dénomination A30X a aussi été employée par les dirigeants d'EADS et d'Airbus dans le cadre d'une récente réunion avec les investisseurs sur l'avenir et les projets de l'entreprise. Sur une planche présentée par le directeur commercial d'Airbus, John Leahy, on voit l'évolution du programme A320 avec les récentes améliorations apportées (ajout d'ailettes supplémentaires en bout de voilure pour réduire la consommation), les projets pour optimiser dans quelques années l'avion avec des moteurs plus performants - le Leap X de CFM International, alliance du français Snecma-Safran et de l'américain General Electric voire un réacteur concurrent de Pratt & Whitney, - puis, dans une quinzaine d'années, un nouvel appareil avec des réacteurs en queue de fuselage voire des réacteurs à hélices (openrotor ou propfan), là encore pour mieux respecter l'environnement.

L'A30X est présenté sur cette planche en deux versions, à la fois pour souligner les différentes motorisations envisageables mais aussi parce que comme La Tribune l'avait révélé, deux fuselages sont à l'étude et pourraient cohabiter : un mono couloir et un bicouloir, le premier ayant plutôt les faveurs des Allemands qui veulent le produire à Hambourg, le second des Français qui voudraient le fabriquer à Toulouse et estiment que c'est là qu'est l'avenir pour accélerer les temps d'embarquement et de débarquement des passagers, clé de la rentabilité d'un vol et la multiplication des fréquences, notamment pour les compagnies aériennes low cost.

D'ailleurs, Louis Gallois, le président exécutif du groupe EADS, interrogé par La Tribune, n'avait pas nié l'hypothèse de deux versions indiquant que selon ses informations, Boieng lui aussi planchait sur deux versions pour remplacer dans le futur son B737.

Reste que ni Airbus, ni Boeing ne sont pressés : leurs A320 et B737 continuent à très bien se vendre. ils sont mêmes les deux appareils les plus vendus de toute l'histoire de l'aéronautique civile. Alors pourquoi tuer la poule aux oeufs d'or tant qu'elle continue à pondre ?

Three concepts outlined in September 2009 :



Those seem to be the key concepts with both new generation turbofan and open rotor configurations.

The A320 will be upgraded with new engines by the end of 2015(15% improvement in fuel burn over the existing engines), winglets in 2012 and a new cabin was available since 2007. Besides, A320 is still selling well. These are the reasons why the need for a replacement was posponed to 2024-2025 but Airbus will have to replace the A320 family one day, and the A30X program will be its successor (with a 30% improvment in fuel burn compared to the current aircrafts).

Flightglobal.com, August 10, 2009 :

A320 successor to be assembled entirely in Hamburg
By David Kaminski-Morrow

Airbus' successor to the A320 will be assembled entirely in Hamburg, as part of an arrangement to distribute workshare more fairly between the airframer's primary owner states.

The replacement for the A320 is not likely to enter service before the end of the next decade.

But a spokesman for Airbus says that EADS has "reconfirmed" to the German Government that the successor aircraft will be built at the Hamburg facility.

The agreement will restore workshare equity after the decision was taken to centre production of the A350 long-haul twin-jet at Toulouse, and comes as the Airbus governments are finalising negotiations on supporting the A350.

"Fair balance is paramount," says the Airbus spokesman, adding that the work distribution also depends on competitiveness.

A320-family production is carried out at three sites: Toulouse plus the more modern assembly plants at Hamburg and Tianjin.

Airbus is turning out the aircraft at 36 per month, of which 17 are built in Toulouse, 18 in Hamburg and one in the new Chinese plant at Tianjin.

From October this rate will fall back to 34, with an "equal number" built in France and Germany, says the spokesman.

While the successor aircraft will be assembled solely in Hamburg, Airbus stresses that production of the A320 family will continue at all the current sites.

I bet it will look like a big Fokker 100 in the end. So it shouldn't be that bad.

AIRBUS | General Discussion

Airbus S.A.S., a France-based aircraft manufacturer, has started construction work on a new $600 million manufacturing plant in Mobile, Alabama. The new assembly line, which is the company's first US-based production facility, will be located at the Mobile Brookley Aeroplex, a former military airfield adjacent to Mobile Bay, in Mobile Alabama.

The new plant will facilitate assembly of A319, A320 and A321 aircraft. It will have a capacity to manufacture four planes per month. The new Mobile assembly line, together with associated functions, is expected to create about 1,000 new high-skilled jobs in the region.

This was an Air France Concorde (F-BTSD). According to the Independent, British Airways was also approached by Pepsi but refused.

I had occasion to see the A400M trained a whole morning in Toulouse.
I seemed a very safe and efficient magnificent aircraft.



I do not understand what could have happened to suffer the accident in Seville.
