A350-1000 test aircraft msn 65 last week concluded a week-long noise test campaign at Morón airbase, Spain.

The aircraft and acoustic ground facilities were equipped with instruments and sensors to measure external noise levels during take-off, landing and engine run ups.

The A350-1000 noise tests follow recent high altitude and temperature testing carried out in South America.

Three aircraft are involved in the intensive Type Certification campaign which Airbus says “is progressing as planned” towards certification and service entry by the end of 2017.
