Wing shape and features
Wing shape and features
Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) suite
developed by the Thales Group
F-22 Raptor
F-35 Lighting ll
Dassault Rafale
Reduces the amount of wiring required and minimises latency
Wing area
Wing sweep
79.75m (261.6ft)
845m2 (9,100 sq ft)
33.5 degree

CFM56 turbofan engine
reduction in noise
reduced fuel
however posed engineering challenge for its low ground clearance
places engine ahead of rather than below the wing
giving 737 a distinctive non-circular air intake

The A380 has been involved in one aviation occurrence and no hull-loss accidents as of January 2014, according to the Aviation Safety Network.
4 November 2010
Qantas Flight 32, en route from Singapore to Sydney
Suffered an uncontained engine failure
Oil leak in Trent 900 engine led to the explosion
Forced the flight to return to Singapore
Debris fell onto the Indonesia Batam
A380 was damaged sufficiently to be classified as an accident
No injury to passengers, crew, or people on the ground
Nonetheless, quoted that compared with the early days of the A340-300 or 777, the problems have not been that significant.
Past Records
Boeing 737
As of November 2013, a total of 329 aviation accidents and incidents involving all 737 aircraft have occurred, including 154 hull-loss accidents resulting in a total of 4,287 fatalities. The 737 has also been in 111 hijackings involving 325 fatalities.
20 April 2012
Bhoja Air Flight 213, en route from Karachi to Islamabad
landing was attempted during heavy rain and thunderstorm
the aircraft may have flown into an unexpected wind shear, which smashed it onto the ground below
All 121 passengers and 6 crew members aboard were killed
It was the second deadliest aviation accident in Pakistan
Types of Airframe Systems`
First airplane made of over 20% Composite Material (Majority Aluminium),
Result: Lighter, More resistant to fatigue.

Upper deck extends along almost the entire length of the fuselage,
width = widebody aircraft (large airliners).

Offered in passenger and freighter (for cargo) versions.

50% more floor space than Boeing 747-400.
Seats 525 people (standard three-class) OR
853 people (economy class)

A380-800: largest passenger airliner in the world,

Shorter fuselage than Airbus A340-600
Types of Airframe Systems
Seats 85 to 215 passengers

Airplane made of composite materials
Reduce weight

Aluminium alloys: Wing spars, keel beams and main landing gear beams
Improved strength up to 12%, increasing service life.

The wings were extensively redesigned to enhance low speed performance and cruise efficiency.

Enhanced slats and flaps - Higher Lift
Wing structure: Strengthened materials and corrosion protection.
Key Features
Sized for Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW)
More than 650 tonnes
WHY? future versions of the model

Wing tip devices:
Induce drag
increase fuel efficiency and performance

Boeing 737
Airbus A380
Achieve high commonality
Ease finances in maintenance, spares and tools for existing operators.
Minimize Training Differences
Flying qualities, cockpit arrangements and procedures made similar.
Key Features
New generation design
High by pass ratio
Reduced Noise Levels
High Thrust
Good Fuel Efficiency
2 of 4 have Thrust reverser:
Enabling shorter landing distance
