For the first time in the history of Airbus, the European aircraft manufacturer sent a model to McKinley Climatic Laboratory. At the same time, the A350 XWB is the largest aircraft tested in this laboratory.

For two weeks, the aircraft was locked in the hangar and underwent various operational simulations depending on the weather conditions. Model systems and installations Airbus A350 XWB (MSN2) have been subjected to several climatic settings, from -40 of degrees C to + 45 of degrees C, to different degrees of humidity, etc.

During this time, the entertainment systems, the air conditioning systems on board the aircraft, the waste and water disposal systems, all have been validated. The testing included operations with the engines, which required anchoring the aircraft to be safe.

In order to test the A350 XWB aircraft, McKinley Climatic Laboratory began preparations six months in advance. According to statements made by Philippe Foucault, the test director, everything went well, and the aircraft performed very well.
