Airbus A321 Jetliner just broke the record for longest recorded flight in the world. The eleven-hour flight flew from the Seychelles islands to Toulouse France for a total of 4,750 nautical miles. Airbus group of industries has been training for the long flight for a while and finally accomplished the task at the end of March. The test flight simulation was created to resemble a real flight as closely as possible. The simulation included 162 heat replicating human- dummy passengers and a 16-member crew. This type of simulation allowed for a more precise evaluation of how the real flight process would go and was practiced over 15 times to ensure the results didn’t vary. The fuel consumption and aircraft reliability performed exactly as predicted, a situation that was clearly a huge accomplishment for Airbus.
With a third auxiliary fuel tank and a maximum take-off weight of up to 97 tonnes, Airbus designed the A321 with reliability and flight longevity in mind. This aircraft opens an entirely new market for trans-Atlantic travel, as it can accomplish longer flight times and cover more miles than previously designed aircraft. The A321 Jetliner also allows for a larger passenger capacity, fitting 240 passengers per flight.
Airbus is an international leader in the aviation and aerospace industry. They are constantly manufacturing, designing and delivering solutions, services, and solutions to customers around the globe. The company was based on a strong European heritage and has since grown to become truly international with over 180 locations and 12,000 direct suppliers across the globe.
