The first Airbus ACJ319neo business jet completed a 16-hr. 10-min. flight test flight April 26, setting a record for the longest flight by an Airbus crew on an A320-family aircraft. The test aircraft flew from Toulouse to northern Greenland and back in an endurance flight that included a simulated diversion under the 180-min. ETOPS rules, for extended range twin-engine operations. Airbus has orders and commitments for 14 A320neo-family business jets.
