First Airbus A400M back for modifications

Following a series of three flights on consecutive days the Airbus Military A400M airlifter MSN1 has now completed a total of seven flights and clocked up 30hr 20min block time.

MSN1 is now spending 3-4 weeks in the hangar undergoing modifications in light of the test data and experience so far and will return to flight in the second half of February. Aircraft MSN2 will join the flight programme in early spring and MSN3 will fly around the middle of the year.

Taking advantage of improving weather in Sevilla, MSN1 had flown every day from 14-16 January, making progress in exploring more extreme areas of the flight envelope, precisely calibrating the air data collection equipment, and beginning specific assessments of the aircraft systems.

MSN1 has flown at the type’s maximum operating speed of 300kt (555km/hr), maximum Mach number of M0.72, down to the stall warning, and at an altitude of more than 30,000ft. It has operated extensively in both direct and normal control laws, and in different configurations.
