Stretched A350-1000 coming together for 2017
The first A350 1000-series variants are due for delivery in mid-2017. The A350-1000 is a stretched 366-seat derivative of the A350-900, equipped with more powerful engines, the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97. Production of the A350-1000 will result in the introduction of Ultra Control’s electronic Ground Door Opening system (eGDO). The eGDO system will be used by the ground maintenance crew to command the landing gear bay doors to open and close for inspection purposes. The system comprises a control panel and two electro-mechanical actuators for each of the 3 landing gear bays. The eGDO system will also be fitted to subsequent A350-900 aircraft.
