Airbus CEO Fabrice Brégier has enjoyed his first experience on board the A350 during a routine test flight that lasted nearly three hours over south-western France.

“I was particularly impressed by the maturity of the aircraft at such an early stage in its life. The new cockpit layout with the large screens and head-up display are amazing and I am confident that pilots are going to love being behind the controls of this machine,” said Brégier.

To date, MSN1 has completed more than 150 flight test hours out of the campaign’s total 2,500 hours which are to be achieved by five flight test A350’s over the next 12 months.
