Airbus pioneered the concept of commonality in its new generation of fly-by-wire jetliners, and the
A330 brings these advantages to all members of its product line. The A330 and its four-engine A340
sister aircraft variant feature nearly identical cockpits and have highly similar flying qualities and
In fact, flight crews can transition from the A330 to the A340 in only three days, while a move from the
A340 to A330 is performed in just one day. This savings in time – which compares to 25 days for a
full type rating training course required with competing aircraft – result in lower training costs for
airlines and increased crew productivity. It is accomplished by the focus of the training being on the
differences between the types.


The A330 benefits from the advanced Airbus cockpit design.

This is known as Mixed Fleet Flying. allowing A330 and A320 to be operated by a common pool of pilots.A330 Family cockpit Another advantage of Airbus commonality is a pilot's ability to be current on more than one Airbus flyby-wire aircraft type at a time. which receives high marks from the thousands of pilots who fly Airbus aircraft daily. Cockpits across the Airbus product line are highly similar. and enables a pilot rated on an A330 to switch from widebody operations to single-aisle flights at the controls of the A320 Family. This opens new crew scheduling possibilities and provides a mix of flying opportunities that is highly appreciated by pilots. whose digital electronic flight controls improve handling and stability while reducing pilot workload. FLYING THE FAMILY The A330’s side-sticks – which replace the traditional centre-mounted control yokes used for decades on airliners – give optimum control inputs for the fly-by-wire system and create an open. the larger A380 and in the future the A350. it is easy for pilots to transition from the A330 and A340 to the smaller A320 Family. uncluttered cockpit environment for the flight crew. As the same basic cockpit layout is used on the other Airbus fly-by-wire jetliners.
