Airbus CEO Fabrice Brégier gets first-hand experience of A350 XWB

Airbus President & CEO, Fabrice Brégier has enjoyed his first experience on-board the A350 XWB MSN1 during a routine test flight which lasted close to three hours and took place over the south-western part of France.

“I am immensely proud to have flown on board the A350 XWB, our latest technology marvel,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President & CEO. “The aircraft is a very smooth ride and 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.”

To date, the A350 XWB 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.
