Structural Test Laboratory

Both before and during the development of new materials and processes, these must be tested to verify their true potential. Additionally, prior to delivery of a new aircraft type, testing must be performed on the aircraft as a whole and its individual structures as a prerequisite for certification.

Tasks

  • Support in evaluating and selecting material
  • Development trials for new construction methods
  • Certification trials to qualify and confirm the calculation methods
  • Trials for repair procedures, construction deviations
