Maybe we should talk more about the technological advances in this plane, if Iīm not wrong this is the first commercial airplane that tolerates a total hidraulic failure because of the dual electric and hidraulic EHBA actuators, thatīs a milestone, or the high pressure and simplified hidraulic circuit or the new and more efficiet electric architecture of 230 VAC and variable frecuency electrical generation systems, the new avionics an evolution from the A380, the cockpit that is amazing and looks very functional. etc...
I will be an amazing airplane time to time I canīt wait to see the maiden fligh. Does anyone know when will be ?

First flight nears, A350 could make Paris show flypast


Quote:
Airbus could show off new jet from the air

* Paris air show flypast depends on maiden flight

* Past launches suggest plane could fly by mid-June

* Cruise performance tests key in battle for sales

What does Airbus think? That a fly over will automatically win them 100 or so orders. I think that airlines will be happy to see it actually flying given all the hype around this airplane. They want to see the inside an start to plane on how they want the layout of the cabins to look like.

That's exactly what they think and they're so stupid for thinking it! Thanks bro for putting them in their place.

A fly-by will show-off the good progress of the A350 program, something that is important to airlines after the delays of several other completely new airplane programs. It also means that Airbus will finally have actual performance data that it can share with potential buyers.

These are things that could convince airlines, especially the ones that now have a wait and see mentality to order the A350 instead of going to the competition.

So even though the fly-by itself is just PR and it won't be the reason for airlines to buy the plane, but Airbus won't do it just for the show or only for the investors as a sign of confidence in the financial side of the A350 program.

Some media want to turn this into a big Airbus vs. Boeing fight, as if it will be bad publicity for Boeing when Airbus see the A350 in skies above Paris. It might give Airbus a bit more publicity, but in the end of the day that's not what airlines base their purchases on.

I think you really have no idea of what you're talking about.

This is what it looks like in a test aircraft :

Do you think that would be really clever to put the A350 on the Bourget tarmac and waste one week of tests just to show that?

If carriers want to see the cabin, there will be a mock up in the airbus stand as there was already two years ago and as there is all year long in Toulouse.

What are those barrel like things? Are they for weight simulation? I've normally seen huge computer terminals in test planes with scores of gauges and stuff.

Yes. Those drums are filled with water to test weight and balance of an aircraft. They normally test how differences in weights of passengers and baggage affect how the aircraft performs so they can calibrate the computers how to handle the aircraft.

I think it wont do no harm to have a flypast at le Bourget at least customers can see it in flight.

Er is een aanzienlijke kans dat de A350 zijn gezicht zal laten zien op de Paris air show in Le Bourget in juni: http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...d.main/5768668

I'm beginning to think you just have an inherent downer on Airbus and this magnificent machine.
Airlines have already planned and specced their A350s and climbing aboard the test frame isn't going to help them further.

The flyover will no doubt be just that; a flyover/flypast. No display, no alpha limits displayed, no touch n go, just a simple, slow flypast down the flightline.
She will undoubtedly be greeted by tumultuous applause from the watching crowd and there will be well deserved pride in the Airbus marquee.

It will show to all those present and to all those who view it worldwide, the steady, solid progress of this aircraft programme; no Potemkin roll out, no band aid and Home Depot fasteners, but a real, flying example of the next generation wide body.

Even the most die-hard Boeing fan would have to admit Airbus have done well with the XWB programme.





Did no-one else notice: The A350XWB FREIGHTER !!!!

From now on, none of the manufacturers would NOT do a good job. The days of making shitty new planes is over. Every new design will now be a bestseller. It's not the 70's anymore.

A fly-by is fine, no need to rush things up like Boeing did, it's better late than never.

As for comparisons, if we look at the Caravelle and compare its fuselage with the 787 there is not much difference, but of course that sounds stupid, right?

could be something with his location. Pittsburgh based companies supply some of the parts to 787 as i remember

As far as looks goes, it's imo best looking Airbus out there. Slight deviation from their normal looks and that's welcome.

News from CNA on new purchase of planes.

Singapore Airlines places US$17b order for Airbus, Boeing aircraft
POSTED: 30 May 2013 7:46 PM


Singapore Airlines said on Thursday it will buy 30 Airbus and 30 Boeing aircraft in an order worth more than $17 billion dollars.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines said on Thursday it will buy 30 Airbus and 30 Boeing aircraft in an order worth more than $17 billion dollars.

"Singapore Airlines has agreed to order 30 more Airbus A350-900s and 30 Boeing 787-10Xs in deals valued at more than US$17 billion," the top Asian carrier said in a statement.

For Airbus, the deal includes an option to purchase 20 more planes in addition to the 30 firm orders. The options can be converted to firm orders for bigger A350-1000s, it said.

The agreement with Boeing comprises 30 firm orders and is conditional upon the US aircraft manufacturer formally launching the B787-10X programme, the airline added.

"Today's aircraft orders are among the biggest in Singapore Airlines' history, helping to ensure that we retain our industry leading position," said the carrier's chief executive Goh Choon Phong.

"They demonstrate our commitment to the Singapore hub and our confidence in the future for premium full-service travel."
