The full scale cockpit mock-up of the A350 XWB shown in Le Bourget and in Dubai was “made in Spain” in 2 months.
Airbus presented at the Paris Airshow-Le Bourget las June a full size cockpit mock-up of the A350 XWB, which is the most spectacular and emblematic section. Spanish company Mazel was selected to build this stunning demonstrator due to its experience in such projects and its multidisciplinary team.
The cockpit mock-up has been shown in Dubai last week and it will be included in coming Airshows.
The full-scale mock-up allows the visitors to feel as if they were in charge of the real aircraft thanks to being fitted with original interior components such as navigation instruments, flight controls, and displays.
This project was developed by Mazel in a record time of 2 months. In order to complete this task, it was required to use multiple skills such as design, engineering, IT, special materials, assembly, electronic equipment and surface finishing.
Previously, Mazel also developed a 21 meters long full-scale mock-up of the Airbus A350 XWB, which has a panoramic cinema inside. Initially, it was presented at the Paris Air Show in 2009 and then was exhibited in Dubai, Singapore, Berlin, Hamburg and Farnborough Air Shows.
Mazel is an engineering company with over 25 years of experience that has its origins in the automotive sector.
