First Airbus A350-1000 Completes Maiden Test Flight


The first Airbus A350-1000 has successfully completed its first flight having taken off this morning for its maiden flight at Blagnac in Toulouse, France at 10.42 hrs local time for a flight over south-west France.


The crew in the cockpit were Hugues van der Stichel, Experimental Test Pilot; Frank Chapman, Experimental Test Pilot and Gérard Maisonneuve, Test-Flight Engineer.

Monitoring the test parameters at the Flight-Test-Instrumentation (FTI) station behind the cockpit were Patrick du Ché, Head of Flight & Integration Tests; Emanuele Costanzo, Head of A350 Development Flight Tests; and Stéphane Vaux, Flight-Test Engineer.

Equipped with specially developed Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 turbofans, the A350-1000 is Airbus’ largest and most powerful twin-engined airliner ever.

The A350-1000 will carry 40 more passengers than the A350-900 which entered into commercial last year with Qatar Airways.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
