Airbus A330-700 (Beluga XL)


#46

It sure does have short range. The XL can only go 2,200nm fully loaded. That’s not even coast to coast in the U.S.


#47

That’s still a good range… since the production lines aren’t that far away it gets the job done


#48

@Jeremy_H If you don’t like it, don’t vote for it.

If it gets added, then just don’t fly it. It’s as simple as that.



(also I think I saw a request for it to be taken to PM earlier by @aviationex_91190)


#49

@BobbyRobert I did not vote for it and if it does get added, I won’t be using it. The request for Pm was not there when I last replied so I did not see it. Relax 😉 Moving on…


#50

For a cargo aircraft to carry aircraft parts and only have 2 engines seems very good


#51

Does anybody know if Ground Effects work on this aircraft, or the original Beluga?


#52

Would be awesome to have but not very relaistic to have 30 of them at one airport so maybe for solo mode or a limit for only so many on a server at once.


#53

Go vote here for that…


The world was given to us to fly. I’m sure you wouldn’t find a lot of them in one place unless it was an event or it was released and everybody would fly it out of Toulouse for a while.


#54

Bumped! Hopefully this comes along in the future. Hopefully with the Dreamlifter


#55

If this is going to get added, then the Dreamlifter should get added as well.


#56

Great aircraft! Hopefully this will be added to IF one day.


#57

The beluga huh

Beluga whale can I get a water squirt


#58

I think it’s cute :)


#59

Saw this cutie 4000ft above me today but i was at work so i havent had my camera with me. At the weekend I just good Beluga 4 and 5 but I will see the XL and 1,2,3 soon at EDDW because here in bremen we like to construct and build wings for your long haul journey!


#60

Hey there,
I think it’s a great idea to have this new aircraft in the IF fleet although I just don’t think (and see) it being in IF yet, I don’t think Flying Dev studios is ready for something like this.


#62

My girlfriend thinks this plane is adorable so here’s my vote 👈
