First flight of ACJ320neo

AIRBUS CORPORATE Jets performed the first flight of its ACJ320neo large cabin business aircraft in Hamburg on November 16, 2018.

The maiden light marked the start of a light test campaign which will focus on the features new to the latest version of the ACJ320neo, including additional fuel tanks in the belly of the aircraft and a greater cabin diferential pressure.

The aircraft will be delivered to Acropolis Aviation in early 2019, before being lown to AMAC in Basle for cabin outitting and repainting in customer colours. ACJ President Benoit Deforge said: “The ACJ320neo first light heralds a new Airbus corporate jet era, delivering a range improvement that enables nonstop travel between even more cities.”
