Volga-Dnepr Technics Sets Repair Record
It took just 14 hours for experts from Volga-Dnepr Technics to repair the damaged nose radome of a Yakutia Airlines’ Boeing 737NG, demonstrating the enhanced capacity of the company’s maintenance operation in Moscow.
Nose radome repair works were carried out at Volga-Dnepr Technics’ maintenance base at Sheremetyevo Airport. The damaged part was delivered to the facility overnight from Vnukovo Airport enabling the maintenance crew to start the repair works early the next morning.
The scope of the work included the recovery of the external and internal composite covering, replacement of a cellular filler and restoration refinishing. The urgency of the AOG (aircraft on the ground) request meant that the repair shop needed to respond quickly to ensure the component was ready to ship back to the customer the same day.
The average time to repair a damaged nose radome of any aircraft type is about 38 hours, making this a record-beating response.
