A319neo with CFM LEAP-1A Engines Receives FAA and EASA Certification

The Airbus A319neo powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines has achieved joint Type Certification from both the US FAA and European EASA airworthiness authorities.

All three aircraft models – the A319neo, A320neo and A321neo – are now certified by the international authorities to operate with the CFM LEAP-1A engine option.

This latest achievement follows an intensive certification flight test programme since the A319neo’s first flight in March 2017, with this variant having now accumulated over 500 flight hours.

 The A319neo with LEAP-1A engines is the fifth airframe/engine variant of the NEO family certified over the last three years. The others are: A320neo/P&W in 24 November 2015; A320neo/CFM – 31 May 2016; A321neo/P&W – 15 December 2016; and the A321neo/CFM – 1 March 2017.

Its certification also paves the way for the ACJ319neo (Airbus Corporate Jet) variant to enter service with VIP operators during the first half of 2019.

The A319neo is the shortened-fuselage member of Airbus’ A320neo product line. The aircraft can seat 140 passengers in two classes, or as many as 160 in a high-density layout with a range of up to 3,750 nautical miles.

Meanwhile, the ACJ319neo’s ability to fly eight VIP passengers 6,750 nm or 15 hours will bring much of the world within non-stop range.

The A320neo Family offers a choice of two new-generation engine options (the PurePower PW1100G from Pratt & Whitney and the LEAP-1A from CFM International), as well as the incorporation of large, fuel-saving “Sharklet” wingtip devices.
