The Airbus A330 is a medium to long range wide body twin engined airliner made by Airbus. There are three models of the original aircraft, the -200, -300 and -200F.
The A330 was a development of the earlier A300 & A310, sharing the fuselage cross section. The A330 was developed in parallel to its four engined sister, the A340. It was envisioned that the A330 would serve the medium range market and the A340 the longer range routes, especially those requiring long over water flights.
The first aircraft, an A330-300 made its first flight in November 1992 and entered service in January 1994. The aircraft competes with the Boeing 767, 777 and 787.
The A330 models are powered by the General Electric CF6, Pratt & Whitney PW4000 or the Rolls Royce Trent 700.
Total sales (to Dec 2017):
In 2014 Airbus launched the A330NEO with the original aircraft now called the A330CEO. The A330NEO (new engine option) will be powered by the Rolls Royce Trent 7000. The -800NEO will replace the -200 and the -900NEO will replace the -300. To date 214 NEO aircraft have been ordered.
The cockpit of the NEO is the same as the CEO.

The -200 is the smallest version of the aircraft, being 58.82m long and being able to carry 406 passengers, but has a greater range than the -300. There is also a higher gross weight (HGW) version of the aircraft, with a 5 tonne increase in MTOW.
The -200F is an all cargo derivative of the -200 and capable of carrying 65t over 7,000km. There are only two engines available for the -200F, the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 or Rolls-Royce Trent 700.
The normal aircraft has a nose down attitude when on the ground, this has been rectified by having a longer nose landing gear leg, this requires a bulge under the nose to house the gear.
The -300 is 63.69m long and is able to carry up to 440 passengers, although typically it carries 277 passengers, over 11,750km.
In 2010 an increased maximum gross weight version was introduced, increasing range by 120nm and payload by 1t, in 2015 this was increased by 400nm and a further 5t payload.
There will be two versions of the NEO, the -800 which retains the fuselage of the -200 but with optimization of the cabin allows a additional 6 seats. The -900 keeps the -300 fuselage but again through optimization can carry an extra 10 passengers.
Both versions of the NEO are powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent 7000.

Cockpit Revolution has been developing cockpit posters for the last 5 years and are drawn by a Flight Engineer using his expertise in aircraft engineering and training.
All the posters are based upon the manufacturers documentation, visits to the aircraft and simulators and photographs.
The posters are drawn to no specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position. If you require a specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position then please contact us.
