Increasing composite application to raise HR-related MRO expenses


Spurred by high fuel costs and the need to cut weight, the aviation industry has seen the use of composites reach an all-time high. With the introduction of Boeing 787, Airbus A350, A320neo, 737MAX and other new generation aircraft, the MRO industry is currently gearing up to service an increasing number of airliners employing a much higher share of composite materials than they represented some 20 years ago.
