Airbus Test Flights
Why are flight tests necessary? Flight testing is performed to ensure the aircraft complies with certification and safety requirements, and meets operational needs. During the flight test campaign we perform specific certification demonstrations, assess general handling qualities, engines and operational performances, in many specific conditions (cold weather, high altitude airports,…). We also check aircraft noise emission and systems operations in real life.
So buckle up and sit back, as you’re in for a ride!
