EBACE: Airbus launches ACJ330neo at European show

Posted 21 May 2017 · Add Comment

Airbus has launched a private jet version of its A330neo at EBACE today. The new VVIP jet combines new-generation engines and aerodynamic and other improvements which the company said will deliver even more comfort, efficiency and true “nonstop to the world” range.

Called the ACJ330neo, it will fly 25 passengers 9,400 nm/17,400 km or 20 hours, enough to fly nonstop from Europe to Australia.
“For customers, such as countries needing to fly heads of state and delegations worldwide on government business, the ACJ330neo offers an unbeatable combination of modern design, proven capability and productivity, as well as being part of the world’s best-selling widebody family,” declares Airbus chief operating officer, customers, John Leahy.
Featuring a very spacious cabin the ACJ330neo readily accommodates conference/dining areas, a private office, bedroom, bathroom and guest seating, and can be fully customised to suit customer needs.
Recent A330 advances include new-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, Sharklet wingtips and improved maximum take-off weights, delivering hugely better payload and range.
Other new features include the option of an onboard airport navigation system (OANS), similar to GPS in cars, and a runway overrun prevention system (ROPS), for which insurance companies offer reduced premiums.
Like all Airbus aircraft, the ACJ330 features Category 3B autoland and other enriching features as standard and, like all Airbus aircraft in production today, it has a common cockpit, on which more than 100,000 pilots are already qualified.
The ACJ330 also has optional dual head-up displays (HUDs) and, in common with the rest of the family, inherits excellent reliability from its airliner roots.
