Background

.A narrowbody Airbus of a comparable size to the succesful Boeing 727 could offer advanced technology, improved operating economics and various passenger capacities.^ The new Airbus would be of the same size, yet offer improved operating economics and various passenger capacities.

.The digital technology in the A320 would herald a two-generation technological leap over the all-analogue Boeing 727 and be a generation ahead of the Boeing 737-300/-400/-500 series.^ UNITED AIRLINES,Boeing 737-300 .

The A320 was targeted at the global fleet replacement requirements for the 727 and early variants of the 737.

.The A320 was an evolution from the JET (Joint European Transport) study commenced in June 1977[3] and based at the then BAe (formerly Hawker Siddeley) site in Weybridge, Surrey, UK. The Hawker Siddeley team had previously produced a design called the HS.134 "Airbus" in 1965, an evolution of the HS.121 (formerly DH.121) Trident[4], which shared much of the general arrangement of the later JET3 study design.^ The A320 was an evolution from the JET (Joint European Transport) study commenced in June 1977 [ 3 ] and based at the then BAe (formerly Hawker Siddeley) site in Weybridge, Surrey, UK: this was to be the last occasion that a British-based organisation investigated a new large airliner.

The design within the JET study that was carried forward was the JET2 (163 passengers), which then became the Airbus S.A1/2/3 series (Single Aisle), before settling on the A320 name for its launch in 1984.
.After the oil price rises of the 1970s, Airbus needed to minimise the trip fuel costs of the A320. To that end, Airbus incorporated advanced features including fly-by-wire flight control, composite primary structures, centre-of-gravity control using fuel, glass cockpit (EFIS) and a two-person flight deck.^ The A320 featured a number of pioneering features for a civil airliner, most notably fully digital fly-by-wire flight control systems and a fully glass cockpit.
