Refurbishment of the A350 flight test prototypes

The first aircraft is to be delivered to Qatar Airways in the fourth quarter. Airbus does not confirm a precise date yet, but it is believed to be handed over to Qatar at the end of November.

Once flight testing and certification is completed, Airbus plans to keep MSN001 permanently and MSN002 until mid-2015, the other 3 test aircraft are to be reconfigured for airline operations sooner.

Based on the article “Two Major Tests Near For A350 Ahead Of Certification” published in Aviation Week
