Airbus Issues New A350 Repair Manual

Airbus has released a new ASR (Air vehicle or Aircraft Structural Repair) manual for managing in-service damage on A350 aircraft.

Airbus has released a new ASR (Air vehicle or Aircraft Structural Repair) manual for managing in-service damage on A350 aircraft.

The OEM stated the ASR documentation was evolved from the former SRM (Structural Repair Manual) for the widebody.

Toulouse-based Airbus said the reason for the new manual is due to the A350 being a completely new programme with a high use of composite material, new design principles and associated methods had to be adopted.

A350 operators will take delivery of the new manual in two stages: first at service entry for allowable damage definition and temporary repair solutions, and then two years later, when data related to internal structure allowable damage, repairs and permanent repair is added.
