The A350 is a large aircraft, with a 64.75m. wingspan, that will be operated at a variety of airports and in all weather conditions.
2 features introduced on the A380 are carried over.
· Etacs. The external and taxiing aid camera system uses nosewheel-well and vertical-fin cameras, along with guidance cues on screen, to help crews steer the aircraft so the main gear remains in the center of the taxiway or runway during ground maneuvering.
· OANS. The onboard airport navigation system presents an interactive airport diagram on the navigation display when range is set to “zoom.”
When approaching a runway, the runway graphic flashes amber to warn of a potential incursion. No aural alerts are triggered.
