Vacuum Bagging of Thermosetting Composite and Metalbond Repairs

2018-01-10
CURRENT
ARP5143A
This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes methods of vacuum bagging, a process used to apply pressure in adhesive bonding and heat curing of thermosetting composite materials and metalbond for commercial aircraft parts. If this document is used for the vacuum bagging of other than thermosetting composite materials and metalbond, the fitness for this purpose must be determined by the user. The methods shall only be used when specified in an approved Repair Document or with the agreement of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

Identification and Assessment for Damage to Composite Aircraft Structures Training Document

2018-10-23
WIP
AIR6825
Individuals who complete this course will be able to define the type of damage, define the extent of damage, determine if further inspection is required, and provide accurate documentation of the damage. The intended outcome of the training is increased safety such that no aircraft is released with unknown damage and that the aircraft meets continued airworthiness requirements. The goal is to change the culture from damage discovery to damage reporting while also reducing or eliminating flight delays due to incorrect or insufficient information.

HISTORICAL
AIR4938A
This is a general curriculum that has been developed to identify the minimum knowledge and skill requirements of a composite and/or metal bond repair technician/specialist. This revision changes the document from an all-inclusive curriculum into a modular set of curricula. Teaching levels have been assigned to the curriculum to define the knowledge, skills and abilities graduates will need to make composite repairs. Minimum hours of instruction have been provided to ensure adequate coverage of all subject matter - lecture and laboratory. These minimums may be exceeded, and may include an increase in the total number of training hours and/or increases in the teaching levels. Each curriculum is a subpart of this document. Part 1 is the basic curriculum independent of product and is the companion to ARP6262 Part 2 is the aircraft specific curriculum and is currently under development and will be released in the next revision to this document.
