Airbus A300

  • The Airbus A300 was the first the First Airplane developed by Airbus. The plane was created from the european Manufacturer to compete with the predominance of the American aircraftmanufacturers.
  • The Idea to compete with the Boeing MD and Lockheed wasn´t new for the European manufacturers wich could be seen at the Concorde, a French and British Congromelate. This time it was different because manufacturers needed to find a niche, which they did with a two Engine widebody Aircraft which can carry up to 300 people.
  • To make sure Airbus was able to develop the Aircraft as fast and sustainable as possible they shrinked the A300 to a much smaller size, which then refered to much smaller and already existing Engines. These Engines were already known so the Company didnt incurige the risk of a plane with problems.
  • Due to the fact that Airbus used already existing copmpounds and knowledge, they were capable to present the Airbus A300B in 1972.
  • In the first years after development Airbus only selled a few Airplanes to Air France and Lufthansa. Facing the not selling A300 Airbus started a leasing Action. They gave four A300 to Eastern Airlines for free. After Eastern Airlines was sure that the A300 was 30% more efficient than the previos Lockheed TriStar they ordered first 23 and in the end even 32 Aircrafts from there on the A300 was unstopable.
  • Even the following generations of the Aircraft brought new Innovations. The plane was so succesful that even today the aircraft all over the world, even though the planes are mostly freighters and only a few passenger planes fly until today.
  • The success of this plane was mainly because of the two engines instead of three or four engines but that wasn´t the only new feature the A300 was also one of the first planes whih was capable of flying with a pilot and a co-pilot only.
