How passengers can an Airbus A340 accommodate?

It would depend on the individual airline, and how they specify the interior. The series 600 has a stretched fuselage, which increases the number of passengers. However, as a rule of thumb, think about 350.

Airbus A340-300 has 295 seats

Airbus A340-500 has 313 seats

Airbus A340-600 has 380 seats

Who is the best pilot in the world?

Skills in pilots are often measured by their safety record. But that can be misleading.

Great pilots are those who use their superior skills to avoid situations where they might have to apply those very skills to exit from that situation. Skills are developed as a result of experience and training. Situational awareness, analytical ability and decision making processes all contribute to the overall effectiveness of a pilot.

Many military pilots have highly tuned skills like those mentioned above. Of course many civilian pilots do also, however, their exposure to difficult situations are often far less likely to occur than military fliers. It's the name of the game. Therefor, I would say that military pilots, especially those flying high performance jet aircraft are amongst the best in the world.

And if combat victories are an indication of skills, then the best pilot that ever lived must have been Baron von Richthoven aka "the Red Baron", the highest scoring ace of all time who many times has been accredited as the creator of modern day aerial combat.

What is the cruising speed and altitude of a 747?

Maximum speed for a 747 is 0.92 mach. Normal cruise is between 0.82 and 0.85 mach at altitudes up to 45,100 feet. meaning about 200 mph give or take.

How do you land a A300 Airbus?

Landing a big airliner is hard for someone who isn't a professional pilot. On a non-ILS approach you should set flaps to 3, maintain speed at 160 knots and decent smoothly to the runway. The hard part is to align with the runway. Try to aim for the lines at the center. When you are about to land lower the gears and set the throttles to "IDLE". When you are over the runway put back on the yoke to pitch the nose up and make the base gears touch down first. You want to perform a "stall" over the runway at a vertical speed less than -250 feet/minute. When the base gears are on the ground put the throttles at reverse mode by getting the levers all the way back. Try to brake smoothly by pressing down at the pedals. Your aim is to keep the airplane at the center line of the runway. When the airplane comes to a complete stop, set barking brakes and switch off the engines (the switch is under the throttle). The information above should be used ONLY when on emergency! In that case before doing anything, you should get the on the microphone and while holding down the talk button, you must say: "Mayday mayday mayday. Flight XXX is declaring emergency. Request immediate landing with IFR rules and visual approach. Full emergency crew required." Then you should set the "squawk" at 7700. To do that search for a 4 digit display near the radio panel.

Are all the Airbus cockpits the same?

Not quite. For instance there are differences in the number of engines. Most models are twin engines while A340 and A380 have four engines. Obviously those have to be managed differently. Additionally, the age of the plane is important: older models such as A300 and A310 have the traditional control column, while ever since the A320 this was replaced with a side stick and fly by wire technology. Lastly, every new generation of planes gets the state of the art equipment of that time, which is usually different from the previously used technology adding more features, implement improved features and replacing obsolete ones.

What is a decision making model?

Decision Making is a basic function of manager, economics is a valuable guide to the manager. There are basically two major models of decision-making - the classical model and the administrative model.

The classical model of decision making is a prescriptive approach that outlines how managers should make decision. Also called the rational model, the classical model is based on economic assumptions and asserts that managers are logical, rational individuals who make decision that are in the best interest of the organization.

The Administrative model of decision making is a descriptive approach that outlines how managers actually do make decisions. Also called the organizational, neoclassical, or behavioral model, the administrative model is based on the work of economist Herbert A.

What plane can hover?

Well there were many trial to make an aeroplane which can hover. Although some aeroplanes can hover for short durations but unfortunately we are still unable to make an aeroplane hover with much efficiency. the examples of few hovering capable aeroplanes are Lockheed Martin F-35 and V-22.

However, by far the most well known and successful is the British Harrier Jump Jet. It went into service in 1966 although the Hawker P1127 was a predecessor that flew in 1960. The Harrier uses thrust vectoring to allow vertical take off and landing as well as hovering at any speed and can even move backwards.

What causes the smoke trail that is often seen behind aircraft?

The smoke trails emitted by display jet aircraft are produced by injecting diesel into the hot exhaust of the engine. Coloured smoke is produced by mixing dye with the diesel.A

The "smoke" trails that appear behind other aircraft are actually known as con-trails and are in fact water vapour. The warm moist air that comes from the jet mixes with the cold air in the sky. It creates a condensation trail or con-trail.

Con-trails are also generated on the aircraft's wingtips. Again, this is simply moisture that is generated. When the air flows OVER the wing, it has to travel further and therefore it speed up. Since it speed us, the pressure drops. The drop in the air pressure will cause any water vapour suspended in the air to condensate and form into a cloud.

The effect is dependent largely on environmental conditions. The air temperature, dewpoint, and humidity all have to fall into a certain range for the conditions to be right for contrail formation. Since these conditions change from altitude to altitude and from place to place, it is not uncommon for aircraft to generate a very definite trail at one altitude, and none at all at a slightly lower or higher altitude.

There have been many hoaxes and conspiracy theories relating to contrails over the years. Some have claimed that contrails are a secret method of controlling weather, while others have claimed that contrails are used to spread diseases and such. None of these claims has ever been proven, nor has a shred of evidence ever been discovered to validate these claims. Many studies have been made regarding the environmental effects of contrails with most showing the effects to be negligible if not completely unmeasurable.
