In this episode I am talking with Thomas Wilhelm, the Chief Test Pilot of Airbus Toulouse. Thomas is a former German Air Force Test Pilot and was involved in the Airbus A400M project for 10 years. On completion of high school Thomas initially spent his compulsory military service in the parachute division of the German military.
After a distinguished career of flight testing with the German Air Force, Thomas joined Airbus. He conducts production and experimental testing on all Airbus aircraft. He is currently the project pilot of the Airbus A330NEO program and also the Head of the Test Pilots.
