An Airbus A319neo test aircraft has completed its maiden flight powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines for the first time. Taking off from Toulouse at 12:30 and landing at 15:20, the aircraft, MSN 6464, will perform an extensive flight test campaign in order to achieve its certification with P&W GTF engines by Q4 2019. The same aircraft had originally been powered with CFM LEAP-1A engines for that variant’s full certification test campaign which began on March 31 2017 prior to FAA/EASA certification in December 2018. The A319neo is the smallest member of the A320neo family.
