Rudder

Helps control the side-to-side movement of the aircraft.

Elevator

Helps control the up or down movement of the aircraft.

Navigation lights

A set of lights on the wings and tail of an aircraft that helps make it visible to other pilots and helps them determine its direction. These lights are an extension of maritime traditions: red on the port (left) side, green on the starboard (right) side, and white from astern (tail).

Weather radar

Signals from the weather radar are transmitted to a screen viewed by pilots, displaying weather activity.

Very high frequency (VHF) omnidirectional range

A navigation system that enables an aircraft to determine its position and stay on course by receiving radio signals transmitted by beacons on the ground.

Satellite antennas

Used for transmitting to and receiving data from satellites.

Auxiliary power unit

Small turbine engine used to start the larger engines and supply electrical power on the ground.

Sharklets

Wing-tip devices unique to this family of aircraft that help reduce drag (air resistance), resulting in less fuel burn and greater range.

Pitot tube

Measures the airspeed of an aircraft.

Baggage hold

Compartment underneath the aircraft where checked luggage and cargo are stowed.

How much does the Airbus A321neoLR weigh and what are its measurements? Let’s roll out some cool specs for our fellow aviation geeks:

  • Maximum takeoff weight: 97,000 kg (213,848 lb)
  • Length: 44.5 m (146 ft)
  • Height: 11.75 m (38.55 ft)

Going the distance

The Airbus A321neoLR has the longest range of any single-aisle jetliner, at 7,400 km (3,996 nm). In one year, an Air Transat Airbus A321neoLR can transport as many passengers between Canada and Europe as the population of Moncton, N.B.—about 140,000 people.

Speed matters

The Airbus A321neoLR can travel up to 902 km/h (560 mph), with a long-range cruising speed of 858 km/h (533 mph)—that’s about 80% of the speed of sound.

Flying high

The cruising altitude reached by an Airbus A321neoLR is 11,887 m (39,000 ft). That’s as high as 21½ CN Towers stacked on top of each other.

Propelled by excellence

Thrust reverser

Reverses the engine fan’s airflow, slowing down the aircraft after touchdown.

Exhaust nozzle

The energy-depleted air from the compressor meets the colder air from the bypass duct and is expelled out the nozzle. This provides the thrust that moves the engine forward.

Turbines

The hot gases then pass through the turbines, which cause the blades of the compressor and fan to rotate, since they’re all attached to the same shaft.

Combustion chamber

Fuel is then injected to the compressed air in the combustion chamber, and this air-fuel mixture is ignited. The fuel burns with the oxygen in the compressed air, producing a hot, rapidly expanding gas flow.

Fan

The fan sucks in air and separates it into two parts. The first part goes through the engine core, and the second part goes through a duct to the back of the engine.

Air compressor

The air that goes through the core enters a compressor, a series of blades attached to a shaft. The compressor squeezes the air into a smaller area, increasing the pressure and sending it into the combustion chamber.

Advanced engineering

The Airbus A321neoLR is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW1133G-JM geared turbofans, with a maximum thrust of 145 KN (32,700 pounds of thrust) each propelling the aircraft through the air.

Cool, but just how powerful are we talking about?

It rivals 28 F1 race cars in horsepower.

The electric power produced by both engines could supply electricity for 30 standard apartments.

Its thrust could theoretically keep 80 pianos suspended in mid-air against the force of gravity.

Yeah. That’s powerful.

We’re big fans

The diameter of an Airbus A321neoLR’s engine fan is 2.07 m (6.79 ft)—that’s larger than most business jet cabins.

Its blades during takeoff spin 11 times faster than a typical washing machine during the spin cycle.

A bigger fan brings you a quieter engine, reducing noise in the cabin and communities by 50%.

50%

less NOx emissions

The engines burn 15% less fuel, reduce NOx emissions by 50% and produce 5,000 fewer tonnes of CO2.
