Already fourteen radomes repaired by Aerostructures Middle-East Services

Posted 23 January 2018 · Add Comment

Aerostructures Middle East Services (AMES) is now supporting five airlines with its radome repair solutions, providing services at competitive rates with quick turnaround times for operators throughout the Middle East and Indian Peninsula.

To date, AMES has repaired nine radomes for Airbus A320 Family aircraft and five for Boeing 737s, demonstrating its capability as the only maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operator in the coverage area to develop and market full repair services for these airframe components. 

The radome repair work was made possible by AMES’ investment in a large-scale, three-meter diameter autoclave – which expands its ability to handle a wide range of aerostructure components. This resource is backed by the expertise of AMES’ two parent companies: Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M), and Safran Nacelles. 
 
“With AFI KLM E&M’s long experience in radome maintenance, cutting-edge engineering equipment and dual operational and engineering know-how, AMES can deliver high-level repair services for radomes and other large-size composite parts,” said AMES General Manager Thierry Baud.
 
Alexandre Mule, the Co-General Manager at AMES, added: “This marks a new step forward in AMES development history, and it benefits from the extensive composite repair skills developed on jet engine nacelles by Safran Nacelles – bringing the expertise that comes from a nacelle system OEM (original equipment manufacturer).”
