FAA certification for A350 before end-October

The Federal Aviation Administration expects to issue safety approval for the A350 by the end of this month, a spokesman from Airbus said on Tuesday.

"The FAA anticipates being able to issue the A350 type certificate during the latter part of October," the spokesman said by email in response to a Reuters query.

Airbus won European safety approval on 30/September for the A350, clearing the main regulatory hurdle before its most technically advanced jet can fly passengers, but approval from the U.S. regulator is seen as another critical milestone.

Based on the article “FAA to grant safety approval to Airbus A350 jet by end-Oct” published in Reuters
