787 Composite Repairs

Tue Aug 30, 2011 8:23 pm

Hi all,
I read the first 787 will be delivered on the 26th of September. To maintain and repair this aircraft the manuals will have to be available. From a professional background in composites, I am very curious on Boeing's bonded and bolted repairs for fuselage and wings in the SRM.
Is there anyone who has more information on that already?

Nice stuff in this thread Boeing 787 Bolted Structural Repairs (by Rheinbote Mar 15 2007 in Tech Ops)

And keep an eye out on this website - I'm sure stuff will start to appear as she enters service properly!

It's better to ask a stupid question during training, rather than make a REALLY stupid mistake later on!

They should be exactly the same as existing repairs for the horizontal and vertical stabilizers on the 777, which have been available for ~15 years. It's the same CFRP material.

Customers should already have preliminary copies of the manuals.

I am in contact with Boeing senior techs who indeed confirm that 777 (feather) repairs hold for a number of 787 repairs, but they say for fuselage and wings whole new ( bonded and bolted) repairs have been developed.

Thanks for the link. Can indeed be useful when it starts to be updated.
