Following these tests, Airbus gathered the necessary certification for the Airbus A350-1000 aircraft. The Trent XWB-97 engines performed very well under different operating conditions, from high humidity to high temperatures. These tests were done after, in February, the aircraft flew at -37 degrees in Iqaluit, Canada!
The 3 A350-1000 aircraft (MSN059, MSN071 and MSN065), which are part of the test program, are engaged in the type certification campaign. All this time, the aircraft's performance is pushed to extreme limits, well above the optimal and normal operating conditions.
