Airbus has confirmed its new A350 widebody twin should make its first flight on Friday, at approximately 1000 local time (1800 AEST) on Friday.

“The A350 XWB flight test teams are now carrying out the last checks on the A350 XWB ‘MSN1’ before they give their final green light for the first flight to take place this Friday,” Airbus says in a brief statement. “Recent pre-first flight tests successfully carried out include the first power up of the fuel efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines on MSN1, which took place on June 2nd.”

The A350 is fully detailed in the upcoming July issue of Australian Aviation.
