A380 Highlift Test Rig

A380 Highlift Test Rig


Airbus Deutschland, Bremen


The High Lift Slat Flap Test Rig (HLSTR) is a test environment for the High Lift System (landing flap and slat system) of the A380.

Due to its aircraft weight with regard to the span the A380 compulsory requires the High Lift System in order to take off or land. Whereas the slat and flap system improved the take off and landing features of former models, it now has become a necessary and security-related system. Therefore requirements for operational reliability have increased enormously.

The test environment simulates certain flight and emergency situations in order to test the behavior of the High Lift System under simulated conditions.
