Programme Content

The recent venue of all - composite fuselage aircraft (A350 – B787), together with the expansion of older aircraft fleets, introduces new requirements in bonded composite repair. These contemporary repair challenges and the latest innovations in equipment and methodologies to address them, will be the subject of a 2-Day CPD Seminar, organized by EASN Association in cooperation with GMI Aero, the lead European composite repair equipment manufacturer.

Key Benefits

Experienced industrial personnel, together with academic experts, will provide an insight of recent R&I developments and critical issues in the field of bonded composite repair, ensuring that seminar participants acquire a full “process understanding”, including a demonstration workshop, to support reliable application of bonded repairs, even on Class I (safety critical) structures.

Key Note Speakers

Two key-note speeches will be presented by experienced engineers from major aircraft manufacturers and MROs and more specifically:

  • Mr. Guillaume FERRER | Embodiment Industrialization Manager, Composite Repair Process Development, Airbus Customer Services
    Key – Note Lecture on “New Aircraft, New Materials, New Repairs".
  • Mr. Philippe SERVANT | Responsible for Engineering, Research and Development of Aerostructures, AFI KLM E&M
    Key – Note Lecture on “Technical Challenges and Innovations in Bonded Composite Repair of Commercial Aircraft".
