A300/A310 technology & innovation
y In cockpit technology, Airbus also has become a leader as the result of
innovations introduced first on the A300/A310 Family. The A310 featured the first cockpit ever certificated for a two-member flight crew on a large airliner, using six cathode ray tube (CRT) displays on the instrument panel to replace traditional dial-type instruments. Electrical signaling also was used initially on the A310 for secondary flight control surfaces, preparing the way for Airbus' subsequent application of digital fly-by-wire controls on the A320, A340 and A380 Family aircraft.
The composites used on the A300-600/A310 lead to considerable weight-saving, helping to reduce fuel-burn. A total of 6.2 tonnes/13, 700 lbs of composite material is used on the A310 (saving 1.4 t/3,100 lbs over conventional metal structure) while the larger A300-600 has a total of 6.6 t/14,600 lbs (saving 1.5 t/3,300 lbs.). The number of parts in the composite vertical tail plane on both aircraft is reduced by 95 per cent, excluding fasteners.
A300/A310 flig t d ck
The A300-600 and A310 are equipped with the most advanced flight decks in their jetliner category, which provided the foundation for cockpit advances used by Airbus on the A320, A330/A340 and A380 Families. The two-member flight crew concept was introduced to the airline industry with the A300/A310, and it has since become a standard worldwide. The cockpits incorporate six cathode ray tube (CRT) displays on the main panel replacing traditional dial-type indicators with electronic instruments that continuously provide flight, navigation and systems-monitoring information in a clear, comprehensive manner. The six identical displays show information optimized for each flight phase, significantly reducing pilot workload. The CRTs are physically identical and are fully interchangeable. A further refinement offered by Airbus on the A300 and A310 is the optional Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), which allows a crew to transmit maintenance and other messages to the ground using a control display on the cockpit's centre pedestal. Also incorporated in the A300-600 and A310 flight decks are a wind shear warning system and Category IIIb auto land capability for operations in bad weather.
Cont y Systems monitoring: The A300/A310 flight deck incorporates the Electronic Centralised Aircraft Monitor. reminder and warning displays in pictorial and memo form at appropriate points throughout each flight. . which provides the pilots with extensive aircraft systems information.

Secondly. but of short duration. on the other hand. are much more stable and can remain in the air for up to three minutes after the passage of an aircraft. Wingtip vortices make up the primary and most dangerous component of wake turbulence. y Wake turbulence is especially hazardous during the landing and take off phases of flight. This flight attitude maximizes the formation of dangerous wingtip vortices. takeoff and landing are the times when a plane is operating closest to its stall speed and to the ground meaning there is little margin for recovery in the event of encountering another aircraft's wake turbulence. the most important of which are wingtip vortices and jetwash. The first is that during take-off and landing. for three reasons.Wake turbulence y Wake turbulence is turbulence that forms behind an aircraft as it passes through the air. it is extremely turbulent. This turbulence includes various components. Thirdly. Jetwash refers simply to the rapidly moving gasses expelled from a jet engine. aircraft operate at low speeds and high angle of attack.
