First ACJ320neo takes to the sky for the first time

First ACJ320neo takes to the sky for the first time

The world’s first ACJ320neo successfully completed its first flight from Hamburg, getting its test programme to a good start.

 

The crew in the cockpit on board this flight comprised: Captain Francis Chapman, First Officer Guillaume Kreis, Test Flight Engineer Cédric Favrichon, Flight Test Engineer James Fawcett.

 

The new member in the ACJ product line is based on the most successful aircraft Family, the A320neo airline Family. The corporate jet version includes features such as extra fuel-tanks in the cargo-hold that will deliver even more intercontinental range, plus greater cabin-pressure for better passenger comfort

It is these features that are being tested, before delivery of the aircraft to launch customer Acropolis Aviation in the coming months. The aircraft will then undergo cabin outfitting by AMAC in Basle, Switzerland, and be repainted in customer colours.

 

Continuous improvements mean that the ACJ320 family now comprises the ACJ319neo, flying eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or more than 15 hours, and the ACJ320neo, flying 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km or more than 13 hours.

 

Both aircraft feature fuel-saving new-generation engines and Sharklets, and deliver more comfort and space than traditional business jets with similar operating costs.
