In the south of Spain lies the Morón Air Base. this is where Airbus leading aircraft manufacturer just completed noise tests for their A35-100 model between March 27 and April 5. As part of its type certification flight test campaign. These tests are being conducted prior to the Airbus aircraft model’s entry into service, projected to happen before the end of this year.
The company utilized ground facilities on the air base to measure external noise levels during take-off and landing phases of flight. They also tested and measured the engine run-ups and general fly-over noise level. The ground facilities were equipped with instruments and sensors to take highly accurate measurements of the Airbus aircraft noise levels.
The Airbus aircraft model comes equipped with the newest Rolls-Royce engine, offering the latest and most up-to-date aerodynamic technology. This brand new Rolls-Royce engine also helps to keep the Airbus A350-1000 aircraft’s noise footprint extremely low.
The first results from the test already showing promising signs that this model is very quiet. It is within compliance with external noise certification requirements with significant margins. A similar Airbus model, the A35-900, is currently in service with eleven carriers worldwide, making it very likely that this new model will be a great addition, and will make the neighborhoods around airports pleased by its ability to avoid high noise levels.
The Type Certification campaign, which is a very intensive process, is progressing as planned. Three Airbus A350-1000 aircraft are flying this campaign. This model offers unparalleled levels of operating efficiency. It is the leading widebody group, while also having very low noise levels and true long-range capabilities. This on top of the fact that it has a longer fuselage to accommodate 40 mote passengers than Airbus’ previous version. It has a much more powerful Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engine.
