Assembly assesment

Empennage panels are stacked for a preliminary assembly assessment, and they matched perfectly. Achieving high levels of manufacturing quality is our key priority for this key structural assembly.

Bigger panels ready

Some of the bigger panels that form the major sections of the empennage are complex. Following careful removal from the tools and trimming they are thoroughly checked to ensure they meet the engineering specification.

Preparation for trimming

Preparation for trimming

Cured parts are removed from the moulds and trimmed according to engineering trimming instructions.

First parts manufactured

With tooling preparation completed on the moulds in our facility, we started to manufacture the first parts. Carbon fibre plies and required filler materials are cut, layered and impregnated with resin according to the engineering instructions.

New prototype under development

The work on our next physical experimental prototype begins! First composite manufacturing moulds for our new flight test vehicle were delivered to our facility. Strict engineering procedures and plans for manufacturing are developed to ensure control during the production process.

The composite moulds are digitally scanned to confirm the tool surface and dimensions match the engineering design before they are used.
