More about the Airbus A300-600F
The Airbus A300-600F was introduced as a modified version of the A300 model, designed specifically for freight transport. The Airbus A300-600F first flew in December of 1993. The model was certified in early April of 1994, with the first delivery to Federal Express (FedEx) later that month. The structure of this freighter is similar to the Airbus A300-600, with notable differences such as a large port side main deck cargo door, reinforced cabin floor, and smoke detection system in main cabin to set them apart.
Production on the Airbus A300-600F started in 1993 and ended in 2007.
Key Features of the Airbus A300-600F
The cabin of the Airbus A300-600F measures 133.5 feet in length, stretches a maximum of 17.33 feet in width, and reaches a maximum of 7.3 feet in height with a minimum height of 6.6 feet. The cabin of this freighter features approximately 13,822 cubic feet of usable cargo area. If operating in range mode, the payload the Airbus A300-600F is structurally certified to carry is 112,325 pounds of cargo. In payload mode, the maximum cargo this freighter is structurally capable of accommodating is 120,705 pounds.
Capabilities of the Airbus A300-600F
The Airbus A300-600F comes equipped with either two GE CF6-80C2A5 engines or two Pratt and Whitney PW4000 engines. Depending on the engine model, each engine is rated at either 56,000 or 61,500 pounds of thrust at takeoff. With these powerful engines, this freighter is capable of maintaining a climb rate of 3,000 feet per minute and is capable of reaching its maximum certificated service altitude in just 13 minutes. The Airbus A300-600F requires 7,625 feet of runway to take off at sea level on a standard day. At its maximum landing weight, the A300-600F needs only 5,364 feet of runway to land. For a flight to a further destination, the Airbus A300-600F is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 450 knots in a long range cruise configuration. For a swifter flight, the A300-600F is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 515 knots in a high-speed cruise configuration. This freighter features a fuel capacity of 18,000 gallons and, with its efficient engines, is capable of reaching a maximum range of 4,050 nautical miles. The Airbus A300-600F also features a maximum cruise altitude of 40,026 feet.
The Airbus A300-600F features full authority digital engine control (FADEC) system. This advanced electronic system not only reduces pilot workload but also ensures top quality engine performance. The avionics system selected for the Airbus A300-600F utilizes six identical and interchangeable cathode ray tube (CRT) electronic displays. Four of these displays are set to display electronic flight instrument system data and two displays act as electronic centralized aircraft monitors. Also incorporated in this system are digital electromechanical instruments with liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Instrument systems utilized in this freighter’s avionics suite include two standard communication radios, two transponders, two VORs, two DMEs, an ADF, two radio altimeters, traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS), and ground proximity warning system (GPWS). Optional additional instrumentation may include digital air data computers, dual flight control computers (FCCs), flight management computers (FMCs), and additional level wind shear protection.
