Airbus A330-800 takes off on maiden test flight

The first A330-800 has taken off at Blagnac in Toulouse for its maiden flight over south-western France.

The aircraft, MSN1888, will perform the dedicated flight-physics tests required for this variant.

The crew in the cockpit comprise experimental test pilots Malcolm Ridley and Francois Barre and test-flight engineer Ludovic Girard.

The certification development programme of A330-800 itself will last around 300 flight-test hours, paving the way for certification in 2019.

Its sibling, the larger A330-900 family member, recently completed its development testing and certification programme which validated the A330neo family common engines, systems, cabin and flight and ground operations.
