Short distance, full power:

Short and medium haul aircrafts

Short and medium haul aircrafts are used for distances up to 2,000 km (short haul) or 5,000 km (medium haul) because they are very economical on these routes. At shorter ranges, it is often left to the turbo-props as they can take off and land even on short runways due to their short-take off ability.

You can choose between four different aircraft types: Airbus A320, Boeing 737, Canadair Jet and Dash 8.

The first A320 was delivered in 1988 and was known as the first civilian aircraft to pioneer the revolutionary digital fly-by-wire control systems. Initially dismissed as the "Atari Plane," the majority of pilots were soon convinced of the need for automation in many of the monitoring functions. The Airbus A320 Family also includes two shorter A318 and A319 models and the long A321 version. All have a standard fuselage with six passenger seats per row and a center aisle.

Fly the Airbus A320 full flight simulator in Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin or Vienna.

The Boeing 737 was developed by U.S. manufacturer Boeing in cooperation with Deutsche Lufthansa AG. In 1968, Lufthansa was allowed to take over the first aircraft delivered from the assembly line. Due to its somewhat stout and compact appearance, it was known as "Bobby". The Boeing 737 has developed into the most successful jet aircraft family of all time. Initially designed only for short distances, today the latest generation of Boeing 737s fly as Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) non-stop even from Germany to Chicago or from Dubai to Austria.

Technical Data:

Length 33,41 m Max. take-off weight 56.470 kg
Height 11,13 m Max. take-off thrust 2 x 88,7 kN
Wingspan 28,88 m Max. range 4.180 km
Fuselage diameter 3,76 m Max. landing weight 51.710 kg

The Canadair jet, the twin-engine regional jet from Canadian manufacturer Bombardier is, based on the number of aircraft models, the most successful in the post-war period. After the first 50-seat versions, extended versions were added over the years and finally the CRJ1000 for up to 104 passengers. The two-man cockpit features comprehensive modern aviation electronics including display screen technology, inertial navigation system, "Flight Management System", collision warning system and a "Head-up Guidance System" (optional), enabling (very) bad weather approaches. Experiencing a start with a Canadair Jet is fun – it’s as if the aircraft is drawn back by a rubber band and silently catapulted into the sky with an acceleration that doesn’t quit.

Technical Data (on the CRJ-700 model)

Length 36,40 m Max. take-off weight 36.515 kg
Heigth 7,51 m Max. take-off thrust 2 x 58,4 kN
Wingspan 24,85 m Max. range 3.184 km
Fuselage diameter 2,69 m Max. landing weight 30.300 kg

The Dash 8 was developed in the early 1980s by de Havilland Canada. The regional aircraft is powered by two turbo-prop engines. The high-wing design allows four or six large blade propellers to operate at a slow-speed with low noise emission. The flight is a pleasure, if only for the sight of these massive propeller blades spiraling through the air and the distinct noise they make – it truly gives you a real “I’m flying” feeling.
