4 History, development and production 1. Information about the project The development began in 1980. There were 50 orders in the year 2000. The first prototype was presented to the public on January 18 th 2005. Another exemplar was built only for long-run tests, investigations and experimentation. These tests will last until 2008. Airbus planned to hand out the first airliners to "Singapore Airlines" in December 2006. But because of a delay in delivery Airbus couldn't keep the appointment of December 2006. The new deadline will be October 2007. Munich is the first European airport which is allowed to handle the new super Airbus. On October 29 th in 2005, the first tests of dispatch (Abfertigung) began in Frankfurt. The First Flight took part in Toulouse on April 27 th in 2005.
5 Who constructs which part? The Beluga, a means of transportation for an aircraft. The locations of production: Broughton (GB): The wings (Flügel) Varel (D) and St. Nazaire (F): The fuselage (Rumpf) Stade (D): The rudder (Seitenleitwerk) Getafe (GB): The elevator (Höhenleitwerk) Toulouse (F) and Hamburg: The fly-by-wire-system and the avionics (Flugsteuerung) The several parts are transported by ship, heavy load or by an aircraft like the "Beluga". All components are assembled in Toulouse, from where the airliner will be sold. 1. Information about the project
6 The different versions of the A380-800 Current versions: –A version for passengers (A380-800) –A version for cargo (A380-800F) Many visitors went to Toulouse to watch the spectacle 1. Information about the project

8 Important facts and figures about the project Airbus employs 500.000 people. The A380 costs 281 million Euro. Airbus took a bank loan of 3,2 billions for the project. The development expensed 15 billions. The standard version has two cabins with 555 seats. 10 passengers are able to sit in one row. The Airbus is able to fly up to 15.000 km non-stop. 1. Information about the project
9 The problems Many tests which the super Airbus has to pass are very complicated. For example, the Airbus has to pass a test of evacuation. There appeared massive technical problems during the tests which caused the delay in delivery and by this, they led Airbus into crisis. Airbus has to pay huge amounts of regulations to the airlines for the delay in delivery. The last client for the cargo version, UPS, plans to cancel the orders. Consequently the cargo project might be in danger and cause serious financial damage for Airbus. All airports, where the Airbus approaches have to be prepared very well. Is an aircraft of that scale still lucrative in a period in which fewer people can afford to travel "first class" to the holiday destination? 1. Information about the project
11 2. The location of production - Toulouse The region - geographical
12 First flight on April 27 th in 2005 The security in Toulouse was very important The airspace was controlled by the army Only the six special test pilots had the permission to fly for the first time Only the six pilots were allowed to fly for the first time on April 27 th 2005 No grave error in the technical system of the aircraft occurred There were many enthusiastic spectators, and the whole world had an eye on Toulouse Toulouse has become initiator of a technical revolution 2. The location of production - Toulouse
14 3. Technical specifications of the A380 The technical dates of the A380 in comparison with the "Jumbo" B747 A380B747-400 –Length:72,7m70,7m –Wingspan:79,8m64,4m –Height:24,1m19,3m –Weight (empty):290.000kg252.000kg –Weight (max.):560.000kg413.000kg –Thrust:1244kN990kN –Speed (cruising):1.037km/h900km/h –Speed (max.):1.061km/h939km/h –Cruising range:15.000km10.750km –Altitude (cruising):13.100m13.696m –Consumption:3,3l/100km*p3,7l/100km*p
15 A project by Peter Michel 4. Another vast project – The Airbus A380 as a model Peter Michel realized his life-task to create the model of the Airbus A-380. He is very famous because he participates air shows all over the world For his model of the A380 he got the original plans directly from Airbus. Then he chose the scale 1:15 and began a long work of reconstructing every detail from the original plane.
16 A project by Peter Michel 4. Another vast project – The Airbus A380 as a model After more than one year of work and an investment of 75.000 € for the material, he had realized a plane with a length of 4,7m, a wingspan of 5,40m and a weight of 75kg with 4 turbine engines that create a thrust of 70kg, 22 wheels, 8 wheel breaks and 41 servos.
17 A project by Peter Michel 4. Another vast project – The Airbus A380 as a model His model had to pass the general registration approval for aircrafts, but finally it got the license for general air vehicles. He was sponsored by a Saudi-Arabian airline A sheik offered Peter Michel 150.000€ for his plane, but he didn't sell it.
18 And now, I have to decelerate very fast, otherwise the report will get too long. Thanks for your attention!
