The Airbus A318 is the smallest and rarest airliner in the Airbus A320 family. It is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a conventional tail unit having a single vertical stabilizer and rudder. It has a narrow-body (single-aisle) aircraft with a retractable tricycle landing gear and is powered by two wing pylon-mounted turbofan engines. Overall, the A318 is over six metres shorter and around 6,600lbs lighter than the A320. To compensate for the reduced moment arm, it has a larger vertical stabiliser. the final design incorporated a fin tip extension, making it taller than the other A320 variants. Pilots who are trained on the other variants may fly the A318 without further certification as it features a common flight deck and the same type rating.
