The Airbus A320-200 is a single aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Airbus Industrie, the European consortium. It is part of the Airbus A320 family, the world’s best selling aircraft line.
The A320 is probably best known as the first aircraft to introduce a fly-by-wire system – where controls from the pilot are transmitted to the flying moving parts by electronic signals rather than mechanical means.
