Posted 25 April 2019 · Add Comment

The ACJ319neo successfully completed a first flight lasting one hour and 55 minutes on 24th April 2019, beginning a short flight-test programme to verify its corporate jet features – such as the extra fuel tanks in its cargo-hold, which enable intercontinental range.

Built for K5 Aviation of Germany, the aircraft will be outfitted with a VVIP cabin by Fokker Techniek in the Netherlands after delivery.

The ACJ319neo is derived from the A320neo Family of airliners and features new engines and wingtip-mounted Sharklets.

K5 Aviation’s ACJ319neo is fitted with five additional centre tanks (ACTs) in its cargo-hold, and includes improvements such as a lower cabin-altitude for greater passenger comfort.

Corporate jet orders and commitments for ACJ320neo Family-derived aircraft now total 14.
 
More than 700 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service, with almost 15,000 firm orders for the entire A320 Family.
