Airbus’ A320neo flight test program remains a source of interest. Tracking the program we note that the P&W powered airplane is not flying, but has resumed ground testing. Airbus tells us “it will fly in the coming weeks” and is doing ground tests now.
Meanwhile the LEAP engined A320neo kept building hours. In its second month the LEAP engine has already achieved a third of the A320neo GTF flight hours to date. Meanwhile the P&W PurePower engine family has built over 5,000 flight hours.
