Four of five A350 test planes are currently undergoing flight trials with 1,600 flight hours logged. "The A350 XWB program remains challenging," the company said, noting that the first two customer planes are now in assembly as the program still targets certification from safety authorities in the third quarter.
The initial A350s to go to customers in 2015 and 2016 will be overweight, but Wilhelm said, "we are happy that the performance will be there over time."
A350 did successful evac test on doors 1 + 3, full test not necessary as some equipmt consistent with other models, operations chief says
MSN006, meanwhile, is on the final assembly line and will be the first aircraft to go to Qatar. Production rate will ramp from three a month this year to five a month in 2015 and 10 a month in 2018.
Wenninger said Airbus is still fully committed to the A350-800 version, even though it is selling far less well than the larger -1000 variant, with many airline customers switching -800 commitments for -1000s.
“There is a lot of focus on the -1000 at the moment, but plans for the -800 remain absolutely unchanged,” he said.
