ACJ319neo1 successfully completes first flight

Posted 26 April 2019 · Add Comment

The ACJ319neo1 successfully completed a first flight lasting one hour and 55 min on April 24, 2019, beginning a short flight-test programme to verify its corporate jet features – such as the extra fuel tanks in its cargo-hold, which enable intercontinental range.

 

Built for K5 Aviation of Germany, the aircraft will be outfitted with a VVIP cabin by Fokker Techniek in the Netherlands after delivery.

The ACJ319neo is derived from the A320neo Family of airliners, and features new engines and wingtip-mounted Sharklets.

K5 Aviation’s ACJ319neo is fitted with five additional centre tanks (ACTs) in its cargo-hold, and includes improvements such as a lower cabin-altitude for greater passenger comfort.

Corporate jet orders and commitments for ACJ320neo Family-derived aircraft now total 14.

More than 700 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service and, with almost 15,000 firm orders for the whole A320 Family, it is the clear market leader in its class.

Airbus’ A320 Family epitomises features that are now standard in most new-generation business jets - such as enhanced-protection fly-by-wire controls, cost-saving centralised maintenance and weight-saving carbonfibre.
