Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The Airbus A340-600HGW (High Gross Weight) is a developed version of the Airbus A340-600. It first flew on 18 November 2005 and was certified on 14 April 2006. It has an MTOW of 380 tonnes (840,000 lb) and a range of up to 14,630 kilometres (7,900 nmi), made possible by strengthened structure, increased fuel capacity, more powerful engines and new manufacturing techniques like laser beam welding. The A340-600HGW is powered by four 60,000 lbf (270 kN) thrust Rolls-Royce Trent 560 turbofans. Emirates became the launch customer for the -600HGW when it ordered 18 at the 2003 Paris Air Show; but postponed its order indefinitely and later cancelled. Rival Qatar Airways, which placed its order at the same airshow, took delivery of only four aircraft with the first aircraft on 11 September 2006. The airline has since let its purchase options expire in favour of orders for the Boeing 777-300ER.

In FlightGear, the A340-600HGW project was started to avoid conflict with the "standard" A340-600. The project is based on Liams Gathercole's A340-600 model, using many systems adapted from the 777. Some parts are also taken from the A320, the A380 and the 747. The project started in August 2013 by Andino, and in September 2015 received a new cockpit, using many parts from the A330. You can follow its development at Andino's Hangar and on the forum topic.

This aircraft is equipped with IT-AUTOFLIGHT.
