Composite Repairs: Boeing 787 & Lamborghini Aventador

  • Unlikely Alliance, Dual Benefits
  • Composite Repair Process Enhancements
  • Specialised Field Support
  • Sesto Elemento Future Development

If there’s one key element that Boeing’s 787 shares with the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, it is their composite construction.

With eleven 787-8s now in service with All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines, as the world fleet grows, so too does the propensity for the inevitable occurrences of in-service damage, varying from ramp rash, air bridge impacts as well as MRO-related mishaps and other airport related impacts.

While the missions between car and airplane are different (naturally), the similarities go far beyond the skin, with both Lamborghini and Boeing sharing knowledge and experience with how to deal with a critical decision when accidents happen – to repair or replace composites.
