The Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ) received EASA approval for a new mtow of 76.5 metric tons (168,700 pounds), one metric ton more than was previously available. The higher limit extends the ACJ’s range with eight passengers to 6,000 nm, an increase of 170 nm over the standard version. The mtow increase is made possible by a new
load-alleviation function (LAF). The first ACJ with LAF was recently delivered, and the function will be available as a retrofit for existing aircraft.
