Airbus A310 Canadian Armed Forces Model Details
The A310 first began life as the +A300B10+., one of a number of projected developments and derivatives of Airbus original A300B airliner.
While based on the larger A300, the A310 introduced a number of major changes. The fuselage was shortened by 13 frames compared to the A300B, reducing seating to around 200 to 230 passengers and a new higher aspect ratio wing of smaller span and area was developed. New and smaller horizontal tail surfaces, fly-by-wire outboard spoilers and a two crew EFIS flightdeck were incorporated, while the engine pylons were common to suit both engine options.
The first flight of the A310 occurred on April 3 1982, after the program was launched in July 1978. Service entry was with +Lufthansa+. in April 1983. Early production A310s did not have the small winglets that became a feature of later build A310-200s and the A310-300. The A310-300 is a longer range development of the base A310-200, and has been in production since 1985. This version can carry a further 7000kg (15,430lb) of fuel in the tailplane.
The +A310-200F+. +freighter+. is available new build or as a conversion of existing aircraft (13 A310s were converted to freighters for +Federal Express+. by Airbus partner Daimler Benz [now DaimlerChrysler] Aerospace Airbus). The +A310-200C+. convertible passenger/freighter first entered service with Dutch operator +Martinair+. in 1984.
The first A310, the 162nd Airbus off the production line, made its maiden flight in April 1982 powered by Prattamp; Whitney JT9D engines. The -200 entered service with Swissair and Lufthansa a year later. Also the late series -200 also featured winglets just like the -300.
A convertible version, the seats can be removed and cargo placed on the main deck.
First flown in July 1985, the -300 has an increased MTOW and an increase in range, provided by additional centre and horizontal stabilizer (trim-tank) fuel tanks. This model also introduced wingtip fences to improve aerodynamic efficiency, a feature that has since been retrofitted to some -200s. The aircraft entered service in 1986, again with Swissair. No production freighters of the A310 were produced. Operators such as +FedEx+. instead adapt ex-airline A310s into freighters. Most have been the -300 version.
A convertible passenger/cargo version, the seats can be removed and cargo placed on the main deck.
A310 MRTT of the +German Luftwaffe+. A310 MRTT:The A310 has been operated by many of the worlds airforces as a pure transport, however some are now being converted to the +Multi Role Tanker Transport+. configuration by EADS, providing an aerial refueling capability. Six have been ordered; four by the German Luftwaffe and two by the Canadian Forces. Deliveries began in 2004. Three are being converted at +EADS+. +Elbe Flugzeugwerke+. (+EFW+.) in Dresden, Germany; the other three at +Lufthansa Technik+. in Hamburg, Germany. The +Chilean Air Force+. has recently purchased two second-hand A310s to replace its ageing 707-320 Aguila tanker and transports. The first was received in October 2007.
The A310 has been used by the armed forces of the following countries:
Belgium – +Belgian Air Component+.
Canada – +Canadian Forces Air Command+. – designated +CC-150 Polaris+.
France – +French Air Force+.
Germany – +German Air Force+.
Spain – +Spanish Air Force+.
Thailand – +Royal Thai Air Force+.
Pakistan – +Pakistan Air Force+.
