Phew, the A380 is finally certified for flight.

Maybe someday I can go to Singapore by myself using the A380 (LAX-*???*-SIN)


**Extra stop unknown**

I can imagine all the Dom and Krug flowing at the official celebration in TLS unless Airbus is broke and gives out Pommery!

Today is BIG BUS day!
That means December 12, 2006 is the certification day of the A380

Next question is will the A380 have the same spacing for landing or is twice the distance still in effect?

Here is an excerpt from an article from Airbus's website:

Airbus A380 receives joint EASA & FAA Type Certification

The world's largest commercial airliner, the 555-seat Airbus A380, has received joint European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Type Certification on 12th December 2006. The certified aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines.

...

The Certification by the two major international governing bodies comes after the A380 successfully completed a stringent programme of certification trials which has taken its airframe and systems well beyond their design limits to ensure the aircraft meets - or even exceeds - all airworthiness criteria. The A380 is also the first aircraft to which 21st century certification standards were applied.

The flight test campaign has also revealed that the aircraft is meeting the guaranteed performance both in terms of fuel burn and range. Because of its very low fuel burn, contributing to the lowest operating costs, it will produce very low emissions. An environmental champion, it is also quieter than any other airliner, meeting the stringent noise restrictions at London Heathrow. The A380 also has the quietest cabin in the skies and provides a very smooth ride. Also, all the pilots who have flown it, enjoy its remarkable handling qualities.
