An all new, long range mid-sized airliner by Planex Aerospace.
The Planex A190-100 is the shortest version of the A190 family, which has unbeatable economics and performance to fill the gap left by the Boeing 757/767 families. It can seat 80 people in First Class and 282 people in Economy class for a total PAX of 362 in a 2 class configuration. Of course, that number can be brought down depending on airline preference, and the amount of cabin flexibility offered in the A190 allow nearly all configurations to be economical. The A190-400 can also take off and land out of airports as small as Wright's North Field, making it the ultimate long and skinny aircraft, period.
The A190-400 has multiple features allowing it to achieve such unbeatable efficiency and performance.
1: The Aircrafts high thrust and folding wings allow it to operate at the smallest regional airports, or even on compromised runways thanks to it's default gravel kit and rugged landing gear.
2: The ultra high bypass turbofan Planex NG-1A-100 engines make for maximum power and efficiency in the same package.
3: The ultra-streamlined design is sleek and creates very low drag for minimum air resistance.
4: More Lift=Better Physics lolamiright
5: It holds the same amount of passengers as the Boeing 777 with the economics of the Airbus A321.
OK. GIF TIME. LITERALLY THE EXACT SAME GIFS AS THE LAST 3 PLANES.

The A190s famous folding wings in action to bring the plane from a Group V gate size to a Group III gate (Aircraft is actually Group IV due to tail height).
ACT1: Gear Doors, always raise before taxi.
ACT2: Reverse Thrusters, they stop you.
ACT3: Speedbrakes, they also stop you.
ACT4,5,6,7: L A M P
ACT8: Wing Fold
LandingGear: Landing gear legs.
For long field takeoff, set throttle 5% until speed hits 10kts (11mph). Set throttle to 20% until 80kts (92mph), then set throttle to 30%. Rotate at 130kts (149mph). Increase your thrust not above 50% while rotating. Short field takeoff is the same procedure, but go 30% throttle from beginning of roll up to rotation, then increase to 50%.
Land with flaps full at a speed of 145kts (167mph). Butter the bread, then ACT3 for speed brakes and ACT2 for reverse thrust.
