The Airbus A220 (ICAO: BCS3 / WAKE: HEAVY) is a narrow-body medium-range twin-engine jet airliner Created in Second Life by McKeenan Aviation the aircraft was based on the real-life Airbus A220 manufactured by Airbus.

Background

The Real Life Airbus A220 is originally designed and built by the Canadian manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace, now marketed by Airbus and built by Airbus Canada Limited Partnership. The 108 to 133-seat CS100 (now A220-100) made its maiden flight on 16 September 2013, was awarded an initial type certification by Transport Canada on 18 December 2015, and entered service on 15 July 2016 with Swiss Global Air Lines. The 130 to 160-seat CS300 (now A220-300) first flew on 27 February 2015, received an initial type certification on 11 July 2016, and entered service with launch customer airBaltic on 14 December 2016. Early operators recorded better-than-expected fuel burn and dispatch reliability, as well as positive feedback from passengers and crew. Airbus acquired a 50.01% majority stake in the CSeries program in October 2017, with the deal closing in July 2018. As part of the deal, Bombardier retained a 31% stake in the aircraft and Investissement Québec 19%. Airbus plans to open a second assembly line for the aircraft at its Mobile, Alabama factory. [1]
