The Airbus A320 is a narrow body commercial passenger jet manufactured by Airbus Industries. Designed for short- to medium- hauls, the aircraft was a pioneer of fly-by-wire technology and regularly competes with the Boeing 737. Variants of the A320 include the Airbus A318, the Airbus A319, and the Airbus A321. The "A320 Enhanced" program aims to further improve the A320 family with longer range and better fuel economy.

Development of the A320 for FlightGear has been postponed for some time and is expected to resume by the beginning of 2011.
