For decades, Airbus flight test centre has been pioneering aircraft testing, developing and certifying a wide range of airliners and military aircraft.
Flight Testing Services
Airbus developed and certified a wide range of airliners and military aircraft (both for initial development/certification and in-service modifications). Various technology demonstrators have also been tested (laminar wing demonstrator, ‘vortex’ surfing flight, autonomous taxi and take off).
Airbus has then acquired a unique expertise in developing, modifying and operating test airplanes. We currently operate prototypes representatives of most Airbus aircraft families (A320, A330, A350 and A380) some of which being heavily instrumented aircraft able to address the most stringent and complex test requirements.
Discover our flight test centres
The flight tests centre features all expertise and competencies to define, develop and safely execute test programmes, including management of regulatory requirements, flight clearance and fly permit aspects.
This may include dispatching FT vehicles to remote test locations in most areas of the world in search of specific environmental conditions which may not be accessible by any other means.
The Airbus flight centre may host your test equipment or experiment but as well may propose end to end prototype or experimental solutions with associated instrumentation.
