Airbus A300

I like this old aircraft one of the first automatic plane.

We need the A310 too

What a beautiful aircraft… Voting for this!

Fun fact: This aircraft is probably the only airbus aircraft with yokes, and not side-sticks.

Incorrect. The A310 is also equipped with a yoke. This is because both aircraft were intended to be of the same design, but were later put into different production lines.

Sorry, my bad

Eh not really, the a300 was built to replace the 707/727 primarily and offered a better fuel burn/efficiency on those short haul routes by providing a large seating capacity, whereas the 767 had nearly double the range and was more suited to fly low demand, long-range routes.

Maybe, but check out the similarities in looks!

Ngl I don’t see any similarities. They are completely different aircraft made for a similar market. There are specific airlines for the 767, and there are specific airlines for the A300. I believe that the A300 and A310 would be a game changer in IF. People who like older aircraft (like me) will flock to the game more if more of these type of aircraft are available.

You are comparing two completely different aircraft and airframes. I see no similarities whatsoever.

Also, may I inform you that the A300 was introduced into commercial flying before the 767. I don’t see how the A300 could be “copied” from the 767 thus the similarities you see if it was released earlier. It is not possible for it to be “airbus’s” version of the 767. In fact, I would say that the 767 was Boeing’s version of the A300. Please make sure to read up!

Now this is an aircraft with such history, that I’m honestly surprised it isn’t in IF yet.
