First ACJ320neo Prepares for Maiden Flight

The first ACJ320neo has been assembled on schedule, fitted with CFM International LEAP-1A engines and painted with the Airbus Corporate Jets livery in preparation for a first flight in the coming weeks.

After delivery to UK-based Acropolis Aviation in the last quarter of this year, the aircraft will enter outfitting at AMAC in Basle, Switzerland, where an Alberto Pinto-designed cabin will be installed, and be repainted in the customerís colours.

Like the airliner versions from which it is derived, the ACJ320neo Family features new-generation engines and sharklets.

The resulting ACJ320neo can fly 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km or 13 hours - enabling routes such as London to Beijing or Cape Town and Moscow to Los Angeles - while the ACJ319neo can fly eight passengers 6,700 nm/12,500 km or 15 hours.

Orders for the ACJ320neo Family stand at nine aircraft, comprising three ACJ319neo and six ACJ320neo aircraft.
