The A380 is a double-deck, four-engine aircraft developed by Europe based Aerospace conglomerate Airbus.

Launched in 2000 as the world’s largest airliners, the A380 was intended to set the European Airbus group as the aviation world leader and address the growing demand for Hub to Hub mega airplanes allowing capacity growth in slot restricted airports.

The A380 achieved its first flight on April 27, 2005, prior to entering service with launch customer Singapore Airline. The A380 proved very popular with high-end premium airlines especially in the middle east where Emirates Airlines operates over 100 aircraft of the type.

The A380 is powered by four engines form either Rolls-Royce -Trent 900 or Engine Alliance – GP7200 (Joint venture between General Electric and Pratt & Whitney). With most fuselage from aluminum alloys. The wingspan has been carefully limited to under 80 meters for maximum compatibility with airport gates.

Although considered as a technology marvel, enabling unprecedented premium cabin product offering such as onboard showers, private enclosed apartments, onboard art gallery, and hotel-like lounges and bars. The A380 failed to meet the sales numbers that airbus predicted. The A380 becomes more of a niche product for a niche premium market. with airlines preferring more economic lower capacity twin engines to either increase established routes frequencies or launch new medium demand point to point routes bypassing congested hubs.

The A380 is the second double-deck very large airliner to enter commercial service after the Boeing 747. Designed as a clean sheet aircraft for the commercial airline market, the A380 was the only double-deck airplane with a full-length upper deck, and a flight deck installed in the middle level between the main and the upper deck.

The 747 partial forward upper-deck with the cockpit installation is more the result of its initial military design requirement allowing for large nose cargo door typical of military heavy transport airplane.

The A380’s flight deck incorporates the latest advances in technology for displays, flight management systems, and navigation.

The A380 cockpit’s main instrument panel has eight identical large interactive displays, with cursor control provided through a track-ball. These displays provide a much larger screen area with clearer presentations, augmented by an optional HUD (head-up display) installation offering that increases pilot situational awareness – particularly during the approach and landing phase.
