RE: Inflatable Tent For Engine Repairs

its more for climate control for application of sealants and finishes than it is to protect the mechanic. good for everyone sure but the real drive to use one is schedule.

Faster cure of sealants and paint allows them to get the airplane back in service faster.

RE: 787 Composite Layup

I think most thrust reversers are still hand layup.

Automation is best suited to limited contour changes. Things with lots of contour and/or ribs, stringers etc are all hand layup because its too hard to program a robot to do a goo d job tucking all the plies into corners and radii etc.

This is a high speed RTO, 110 knots for the full autobrake test I think. Much higher than 85 anyway.

they do a low speed RTO before first takeoff just to make sure they can stop. Always good to know if you are going to go fly for the first time.
