GA Telesis MRO Services Group has developed a transmissivity test cell for repairing and overhauling aircraft radomes at its FAA- and EASA-approved composite and aerostructures repair facility near Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport in Florida. The test cell is capable of testing radomes on a variety of aircraft, including models from Bombardier, Cessna, Embraer, and Gulfstream, as well as Airbus and Boeing.
MRO Services’ composite and aerostructures repair facility specializes in the overhaul and repair of structures and components such as engine nacelles and flight control structures. Development of the radome test cell follows the recent addition of a second, 37-foot autoclave.
“This new capability is critical in testing repaired and overhauled radomes before returning them to service, setting GA Telesis apart in the aftermarket segment of composites,” said MRO Services president Pastor Lopez. “Our engineering team formulated a design plan and executed it well.”
