Airbus Develops Fuel Management System for the A380 Using Model

Airbus Develops Fuel Management System for the A380 Using Model | Airbus A380 | Scoop.it

The Airbus A380, the largest commercial aircraft currently in operation, has a range of more than 8,000 miles. To enable such long nonstop flights, the A380’s 11 fuel tanks have a capacity of 250 metric tons (320,000 liters).

The A380’s sophisticated fuel management system handles fueling and defueling operations on the ground, as well as fuel flow to engines and between tanks while airborne. The system can move fuel between tanks to optimize the aircraft’s center of gravity, reduce wing bending, and keep fuel within the acceptable temperature range.
