A400M Flight Test Update: May 2012
These slides were presented during the Trade Media 2012 event held at Madrid, Spain and Toulouse, France in May 2012.
The presentation was made by Fernando Alonso, SVP Flight and Integration Tests for Airbus Military.
The A400M through May 16, 2012 has flown 3,212 hours over 1,094 flights. And these flights and tests have been conducted worldwide.
Alonso discussed as well the evolving tanker tests for the A400M. The key point is that the tanking tests to date have indicated no real problems with the design of the aircraft with regard to integrating a tanker function.
The journalists attending the Trade Media event were able to visit in small groups Grizzly 3 and to talk to the crew as well.
