HAECO Composite Services, a member of the HAECO Group specialising in composite repair for nacelles, radomes and aerostructures, recently completed repair work for a Xiamen Airlines aircraft damaged by a severe hailstorm.
To facilitate the extensive repair of the flight control surfaces on the Boeing 737 aircraft, HAECO Composite Services worked hand in hand with Xiamen Airlines’ Fuzhou Base Maintenance team on this urgent task.
