Airbus Military conducted the first test flight of a potential future enhancement for its C295 medium transport on 21 December 2012, with the addition of winglets intended to boost efficiency during take-off, climb and cruise phases. Performed from its San Pablo site in Seville, Spain, the sortie will be followed by other data-gathering flights, the company said in a 2 January statement.
