Airbus has tested a new suite of pilot assistance technologies on an A350-1000 test aircraft that engineers hope will enhance flight safety and efficiency.

The two and a half year DragonFly project is being run by Airbus’ UpNext subsidiary in Toulouse, France. The project aims to develop safety technologies including automated emergency diversion in cruise, automatic landing for crew member-incapacity situations as well as taxi assistance on the ground.
