summary

As the next-generation widebody A350 XWB jetliner’s testing and certification programme ramps up, Airbus has released the fourth edition of its “Shaping Efficiency” interactive magazine – available as an iPad application or online.

Issue no. 4 offers exclusive multimedia content on the A350 XWB’s programme progress, including a unique 360 deg. takeoff view from Airbus’ Toulouse, France headquarters.
The e-magazine begins with an inside look at the maiden flight of MSN3 – which this October became the second A350 XWB to fly – featuring photos, videos and stories on this landmark mission, and the crew on board. 
Airbus’ “Abreuvoir” also is highlighted in this edition with a special look at the building which serves as a central hub for A350 XWB operations in Toulouse, France during the flight testing campaign. 
In addition, the magazine features updates on the A350 XWB’s flight test programme, including video clips that go behind the scenes for important aircraft evaluations such as the minimum unstick velocity (VMU) and flutter tests. 
Check out this “all-access” pass into Airbus’ next-generation widebody aircraft, and be sure to stay tuned as “Shaping Efficiency” will continue throughout the flight test campaign to the A350 XWB’s future service entry.
