time of up to 25 days, which sums up in
a turnaround time of not more than 30
days. Dedicated MRO/Part 145 composite
technicians and certifying personnel are
available for each of the process steps to
ensure a seamless flow of the repair at
FACC. The repair team is supported by 20
autoclaves in house, as well as the latest
NDT techniques such as thermography
and a wide range of CMM measurement
devices to ensure that the repair meets
all requirements. A viable ERP solution
supports the interaction with the repair
team in house as well as to report the
status to the customer. With all that said,
FACC Aftermarket Services provides OEM
proven repair solutions to the customer.

A BIG IMPACT
found in the ply layup, it is necessary to
remove this imperfection, which is generally either a dis-bond or foreign material
inclusion which is greater than 6.0 x 6.0
mm. To remove this detected foreign material, it is necessary to scrap all overlaying
material ply by hand. This process step
is sometimes a very long process because
some aircraft structures consist of more
than 50 layers of composite material. After
this exercise, another NDT inspection is
necessary to ensure that all foreign objects
are removed.
Based on the results of the FOD removal process, the MRB stress engineer has

developed a repair ply buildup scheme.
This scheme defines ply materials and
weaving directions of the material to
ensure proper strength and geometrical fit
of the repair for the full product life-cycle.
The layup process itself is again carried
out by hand layup in a clean room environment and all further inspection steps
are performed as initially defined in the
initial airworthiness part design.
It is vitally important to have a lean process landscape to fulfill the requested and
expected turnaround times. The process
is divided in an incoming inspection time
which takes up to five days and a repair

"In order to be close to our customers
- airline customers as well as MRO stations - FACC opened subsidiaries like
FACC Solutions Inc. in Wichita and FACC
Solutions Inc. in Montreal, besides the
headquarters location FACC AG in Ried
im Innkreis, Austria," Strobl states.
"FACC in Austria currently holds Part
145 approvals from EASA, FAA, TCCA, and
CAAC before finalization," Strobl continues. "FSI-Wichita with FAA and EASA Part
145 approvals was originally established to
perform modifications from blended winglets to Split Scimitar winglets for Aviation
Partners Boeing Inc. but the huge market
demand for winglet repairs convinced us
