Spanish Air Force Carries Out Acceptance Flight Of Its First Airbus A400M Aircraft

The Spanish air force is likely to receive its first Airbus A400M aircraft on Monday.

Spanish air force pilots and Airbus DS made an acceptance flight to test and certify the aircraft that is to be delivered is in perfect condition and is fully operational on November 2.

The A400M aircraft’s final assembly is being done at the Airbus DS Seville facility. The production has accumulated delays in recent months, after detecting several problems in the engine and gearbox in some frames of the fuselage structure.

These problems have not been confirmed in the 24 aircraft already in service, but were forced to prioritize the replacement of damaged parts in them, not to undermine its operation, which has slowed down the assembly line, waiting for the arrival of new components rectified.
