Relive the A320neo’s historic first flight
 

A “new” leader in single-aisle efficiency took to the skies for the first time on 25 September 2014 with the maiden flight of Airbus’ A320neo (new engine option) jetliner. Step “on-board” the no. 1 NEO aircraft with flight test crew and experience the sights and sounds of this historic day in Airbus’ “best of” video. Highlighting the A320neo’s approximately two-and-a-half-hour mission – which took off and landed at Toulouse-Blagnac Airport – this clip also includes planeside comments from the flight test crew.

The first A320neo to fly has lifted off at Toulouse-Blagnac Airport France at 12 noon local time. The aircraft is flown by Airbus Experimental Test Pilots Philippe Pellerin and Etienne Miche de Malleray. Accompanying them in the cockpit are Test-Flight Engineer Jean-Paul Lambert. Monitoring the progress of the flight profile are the Flight-Test Engineers Manfred Birnfeld and Sandra Bour-Schaeffer.

This aircraft, MSN6101 with registration F-WNEO, started assembly in March of this year, followed by roll-out in July. Since then, it has undergone various checks and ground tests in preparation for the first flight today.
