The ACJ350 XWB – the latest addition to ACJ’ family of VIP widebodies – offers innovative technology such as wings that morph in-flight to produce the most efficient and cost-effective flight possible as well as a fuselage made from next-generation carbon composite materials. The XWB stands for Xtra Widebody, enabling the ACJ350 to deliver Xtra comfort, Xtra innovative technology, Xtra efficiency and to be Xtra easy to outfit.
Widebodies such as the ACJ350 XWB offer the equivalent of several houses of floorspace, so creating cabins that meet demanding certification rules can be challenging, especially when they are installed within a fuselage made of new materials such as carbonfibre.
Setting the standard in carbon fibre VIP cabins: The Easyfit cabin outfitting
Addressing challenging carbon cabin outfitting via an innovative solution reducing risk, lead-time and cost, Airbus has thus chosen to pre-equip the carbon fibre fuselage of the ACJ350 XWB with hundreds of attachment points and has designed standard system interfaces, greatly simplifying the work of cabin-outfitters. It has also worked extensively with several cabin outfitters to ensure smooth completions for customers. The following outfitters have been approved for ACJ350 XWB completions:
The ACJ350 XWB can fly twenty-five passengers 11,100 nm/ 20,557 km or more than 22 hours non-stop, making it today’s most modern and capable corporate jet.
The ACJ350 XWB delivers more capacity, capability and comfort. The spacious cabin offers fully customizable interiors, giving customers the greatest choice and comfort, whilst presenting inspirational and infinite possibilities to create “your world above the world”.
The most perfect designs often are found in nature. That’s why Airbus looks to learn from the natural world when designing and improving its aircraft. As the newest member of the company’s widebody family, the ACJ350 XWB is an example of how this inspirational blend of science and nature represents another significant evolution in the on-going mission to conceive and manufacture the perfect aircraft.
The ACJ350 XWB has learned from nature, whether it’s the revolutionary adaptive wing design – inspired by birds – which morphs while airborne to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency by optimising wing loading, reducing drag and lowering fuel burn; or the savings generated by innovative technological advances.
The world’s most modern VIP widebody benefits from being built with over 70 per cent advanced materials; combining carbon composites (53 per cent), titanium and modern aluminium alloys, to create a lighter and more cost-efficient aircraft whilst also reducing maintenance requirements. The latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines are quieter and more efficient.
