ACJ319neo makes successful first flight
The ACJ319neo1 successfully completed a first flight lasting one hour and 55 min on 24th April 2019, beginning a short flight-test programme to verify its corporate jet features – such as the extra fuel tanks in its cargo-hold, which enable intercontinental range.
Built for K5 Aviation of Germany, the aircraft will be outfitted with a VVIP cabin by Fokker Techniek in the Netherlands after delivery.
Corporate jet orders and commitments for ACJ320neo Family-derived aircraft now total 14.
More than 700 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service and, with almost 15,000 firm orders for the whole A320 Family, it is the clear market leader in its class.
Airbus’ A320 Family epitomises features that are now standard in most new-generation business jets – such as enhanced-protection fly-by-wire controls, cost-saving centralised maintenance and weight-saving carbon fiber.
