  1. First ACJ319neo Makes Record Endurance Flight

    The first Airbus Corporate Jet 319neo is in the news once again after setting a record endurance flight which Airbus crew onboard. The aircraft was on another test flight and flew for around 16 hours and 10 minutes on the 26th of April. It involved a flight from Toulouse to northern Greenland and back, in an endurance flight that included a simulated diversion under 180 min ETOPS(3) rules, for which the A320 airliner family is already certificated.
  2. "We want to fly customers to their destination using the quickest routes, as well as delivering unsurpassed comfort and service, and it’s impressive to see such long-range capability at first hand," said K5 Aviation CEO and Chief Pilot Erik Scheidt, who participated in the flight. This aircraft will be delivered to K5 Aviation once completed. K5 Aviation’s ACJ319neo is fitted with five additional center tanks (ACTs) in its cargo-hold which greatly aids the aircraft in its long-range capabilities.
