    Aviation Week’s chief aircraft evaluation editor, Fred George, flew the Airbus A400M Atlas, MSN6, from Toulouse on a rainy day earlier this year.

    Fred’s verdict after the test flight: “The Atlas has some of the most capable avionics and flight controls ever fitted to a military transport. Its turboprop engines are unprecedented for their blend of power and fuel efficiency.” 

    Watch the video as Fred takes to the left seat and read the full technical description in the June 10, 2013 edition of Aviation Week & Space Technology.
