The benchmark in composites: ARC
We have the capabilities and know-how to maintain all composite and bonded materials used in modern aircraft. Our service portfolio comprises the testing, repair, maintenance, overhaul and modification for nacelles, radomes and flight controls. In addition, you can rely on comprehensive spare parts supply, asset management, pooling concepts, contract management, manufactured parts (21 G) and engineering.
Licensed by the original equipment manufacturers for all repair levels and developing our own approved innovative repair procedures, we carry out repairs in cases where others would be forced to scrap the component. Based on a knowledge that we have acquired over decades, we also invest in the future to support modern fleets of any size and mix. Our composites specialists are all driven by the same goal: to provide you with high-quality services for nacelles and other composite parts at low cost.
Composite Structures: Asset Management
A pool of spares
Whenever you need a spare nacelle part, radome or flight control surface – we are almost certain to have it on stock and offer it for loan, exchange and sale according to your needs. Customer satisfaction in all aspects of your operations is our biggest business driver. That's why we operate one of the largest pools for composites of the world.
Our solution AVIATAR MRO-Management is your single source solution for all part and tool demands. The application provides transparent availability of all materials – currently including LRUs (Line Replaceable Units), ARCs (Aircraft Related Components), C&E (Consumables & Expendables) and tools. You can search for part numbers or descriptions, find alternative materials and filter for certificates, condition or location. Quotations can be requested directly through the application.
… major assets are available in our pool - one of the largest in the world!
Mastering new technologies
Repairing aircraft parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) both cost-effectively and in a durable manner is no easy matter. It calls for specialists who have the right prerequisites – the experience and the ability to master cutting-edge technologies as they emerge. Our engineers work together with both original equipment manufacturers and airworthiness authorities to develop new repair methods and to seek out new technologies for your benefit. Our in-house developed innovative repair procedures, such as a mobile repair robot, not only set new standards in the industry, but directly result in increased efficiency and cost reductions.
