Airbus A350 XWB landing gear test bench ready for service

The A350 XWB's main and nose landing gear test bench is ready for service at Airbus' site in Filton, UK. This latest step in the A350 XWB's progress is achieved more than one year before the aircraft's first flight and two years before its entry into service.

Extensive testing campaigns are being carried out for all A350 XWBs systems and components well ahead of first flight. This will ensure the aircraft has a high level of performance, reliability and maturity built-in from day one.

The defining characteristics of the A350 XWB landing gear are simplicity and robustness with particular attention paid to corrosion prevention. These factors will bring a significant contribution to the A350 XWB's high operational reliability and lower maintenance costs.
