A350-900 receives FAA certification

The Airbus A350-900 has received FAA type certification. The certified aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. This follows the A350-900 type certification awarded by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Sept. 30.
According to Airbus, the A350-900’s respective certifications come after completing a “stringent program of certification trials, which took the A350-900 airframe and systems well beyond their design limits to ensure all airworthiness criteria are fully met. The fleet of five test A350-900 aircraft completed the certification flight test campaign, on time, having accumulated more than 2,600 flight test hours to create and successfully achieve one of the aviation industry’s most thorough and efficient test programs ever developed for a commercial airliner,” Airbus said.
