In 1988 Airbus Industry Consortium Launches A320-210 In November 1988, the aircraft received a certificate, and deliveries began. This modification differs from the original A320-110 by the presence of two additional fuel tanks in the wing center section, which increased the flight range. A320-200 aircraft are equipped with more powerful engines of the CFM56 family. In 1989-1991 On one of the aircraft, special self-adhesive films with longitudinal micro-grooves deposited on them, the so-called “riblets”, were tested. With their help, it was possible to improve the flow around the glider, thereby reducing harmful resistance. Such films are tested on other aircraft of the Airbus Industry consortium, including wide-body ones.
The aircraft is equipped with the EFIS digital avionics complex manufactured by the French company TOMCOH-CSF, which consists of six color multifunction displays for displaying navigation and navigation information, as well as data on the operation of on-board systems and warning about failures. All avionics comply with the ARINC 700 standard. It has been mass-produced since 1988. By mid-1997, 882 A320 aircraft of all modifications were sold; delivered more than 560.
