Freighters, Mandarin News October 16, 2017 at 11:16 am

上周晚些时候,这架原隶属于马来西亚航空的空客A330-300改造货机,经由EFW进行了六小时的首次成功试飞。 严格意义来讲,这是该改造货机的第二次试飞,真正的首次试飞在前一天,但面对“风暴泽维尔”的不利天气条件,仅飞行了几分钟即降落。此后还有几次飞行测试,EFW表示,预期将于11月中旬获得补充机型认证,而不是之前预计的12月下旬。 EFW由新科宇航(55%)与空中客车(45%)合资成立,于2012年启动了空客A330-200以及A330-300的客机改造货机项目,至今已经有一段时间。然而,随着埃及航空于2014年签约成为空客A330-200改造货机的首家用户,DHL于2016年签约成为A330-300改造货机的首家用户,空客A330改造货机的纪元揭开帷幕。 以下是迄今为止,EFW关于空客A330系列客机改造货机项目的时间进程: 2014年12月:埃及航空签署了两架空客A330-200改造货机的订单,外加两架可选订单。 2016年7月:DHL签署了四架空客A330-300改造货机的订单。 2016年7月:首架空客A330-300(原隶属于马来西亚航空),入库德累斯顿机场(DRS)进行改造。 2017年4月:埃及航空将机队内的一架空客A330-200,入库德累斯顿机场(DRS)进行改造。 2017年6月:DHL再次签署了四架空客A330-300改造货机的订单,外加十架可选订单。 2016年12月:第二架空客A330-300(原隶属于葡萄牙Hi Fly航空),入库德累斯顿机场(DRS)。 2017年10月:首架空客A330-300客机改造货机,在德国德累斯顿机场(DRS)试飞成功。 未来:EFW表示,预期将于11月中旬获得补充机型认证(STC)。
