A320 Family even quieter on approach with new ”Air flow Deflectors”

Building on the A320 Family’s established reputation for quiet operations, Airbus is reducing noise levels even further for its popular single-aisle product line with the introduction of small underwing air flow deflectors. Positioned just ahead of underwing cavities for the fuel over-pressure protection system, these devices prevent the cavities from generating a “whistling” sound which can sometimes be heard on the ground when the engines are at idle during final approach. Air flow deflectors were implemented in production A320 jetliners this spring and are also available as a retrofit modification.
