HAECO Composite Services recently completed extensive repair work of the flight control surfaces on a Xiamen Airlines 737, which was damaged by a severe hailstorm.
HAECO Composite Services is a member of the HAECO Group and specialises in composite repair for nacelles, radomes and aerostructures. The company worked together with Xiamen Airlines’ Fuzhou base maintenance team to complete the work.
Some 32 units including ailerons, elevators, flaps, slats, spoilers and wedges were promptly shipped to HAECO Composite Services to kick off immediate repair work. Through mutual collaboration with the airline’s engineering and procurement teams in Xiamen and Fuzhou, HAECO Composite Services said it worked around the clock to meet the customer’s turnaround time expectations, and “efficiently returned the units in pristine condition”.
“We are pleased to undertake and successfully accomplish this massive repair work for Xiamen Airlines,” said HAECO Composite Services’ vice president of aftermarket business development Chong Tat Nyin. “Given the proximity of our facility to our customer’s Fuzhou maintenance base, we look forward to cultivating an alliance of mutual co-operation and growth with Xiamen Airlines in the years to come.”
