787 Repair Courses

P1-787 Structural Repair Manual (SRM) - Structural Composites

Course Code: P1-787
Duration: 5 Days
Course Fee: Available on Enquiry
Course structure: 100% Application through Case Studies

The course is suitable for aircraft composite repair technicians, engineers and quality assurance inspectors and for those planning to take the specialised 787 structural repairtechnician’s, engineer’s or quality assurance inspectors courses.

This course provides the delegate with the knowledge and skill to effectively use the 787 Structural Repair Manual (SRM) to appriciate or verify repairs carried out with the 787 repair methods.


The primary focus is Chapter 51 composites repair processes, structural identification, allowable damage and repair within SRM limits. The course enables the delegate to experience and carry out structural composite repairs with detailed scenarios to assist the delegates to assess effective repair SRM compliance, damage limits and repair compliant options available at various locations on 787 aircraft.


To satisfy Boeing requirements for composite structural repair on the 787 a multi-part course is required. This part 1 course focuses on an overview of the SRM linked to a series of repair issue assessments.

This course aims to:

  • to provide a wider knowledge of repair situations ahead of a real-world situation.
  • to provide confidence and understanding of the structure of the 787 SRM.
  • to introduce 787 damage limits and determine if composite damage is repairable within the 787 SRM.
  • to identify the new 787 composite repair processes along with composite ply material, sequences and orientations required for various 787 structures.

P2-787 Structural Repair - Composites

Course Code: P2-787
Duration: 15 Days
Course Fee: Available on Enquiry
Course structure: 25% Theory, 75% Practical
Prior learning (Pre-requisite): P1-787 Structural Repair Manual (SRM) – Structural Composites

Technician and Engineer Common Course. This course prepares the delegates who are technicians or engineers by providing a common experience of repair methods, knowledge and terminology via a highly practical focus of composite structural.

The course is a follow-on course from P1-787 Structural Repair Manual; delegates will have satisfactorily completed P1-787 prior to attending this specialist course.

This course delivers SRM compliant repair training. The course focuses on the latest techniques required to perform composite repairs including bonded, solid (Monolithic) laminate, edge band and face skin repairs. The course explores the types and application of composite materials used on the 787 along with the newest repair techniques. The course also expands the latest bagging techniques and the underlying principles for the new techniques identified within the SRM and links to equipment needed to effectively undertake the repair.

This structural composite repair programme is within our well equiped training workshop, which complies with SRM and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) stipulations.

Upon completion of the 787 structural repair series of courses the gained knowledge and experience validates the delegates approval licence.

This course aims to:

  • to provide a knowledge of the materials, equipment, repairs and cure applicationsspecified in the 787 aircraft.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge to undertake bonded and complex repairs inline with SRM stipulations for the 787.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge and practical skills required to carry outeffective repairs to structural composites and bonded structures for the 787 aircraft.
  • to provide the delegates with the appropriate experience of vacuum baggingrequirements as set out in the 787 SRM.
  • to satisfy all the relevant quality assurance and safety requirements.

P3-787 Advanced Composite Analysis for Engineers.

Course Code: P3-787
Duration: 5 Days
Course Fee: Available on Enquiry
Course structure: 60% Theory, 40% Practical
Prior learning (Pre-requisite): 
P2-787 Structural Repair – Composites

 

The advanced extension to the base composite structural repair unit P2-787 Structural Repair – Composites is designed for graduate engineers and presents an in-depth structural composite repair analysis for engineers who are tasked to assist the Design Authority for repairs which are outside the Structural Repair Manual (SRM). This unit is carried out after P2-787 to maximise the learning outcome.

This course delivers SRM compliant training that enables the engineer to submit repairs to Boeing for the 787 that are beyond the limits of the SRM. The course focuses detailed information on material properties, stress analysis, repair strength and stiffness analysis and repair modification analysis while considering the effects of classical laminate analysis. The course also extends the engineers practical hands-on experience of bolted repairs and vacuum bagging techniques.

This course aims to:

  • To provide analysis skills to enable the engineer to specify repairs that are outside the787 SRM.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge to analyse the effects of modifying 787 SRMbolted and bonded repairs.
  • to provide the delegates with the opportunity to verify repairs through stiffness analaysisand use of composite design principles.
  • to utilise stress analysis techniques: eg micro-mechanics and laminate plate theory.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge to be able to identify/modify the best SRM fitfor given repair.

P4-787 Composite Repair for Quality Assurance Inspectors.

Course Code: P4-787
Duration: 10 Days
Course Fee: Available on Enquiry
Course structure: 40% Theory, 60% Practical
Prior learning (Pre-requisite): P1-787 Structural Repair Manual (SRM) – Structural Composites

This quality assurance inspectors course is an important aspect of quality assurance, it is designed to equip the quality assurance inspector with the knowledge and skill to inspect and verify that repairs carried out are in compliance with the Structural Repair Manual (SRM) requirements; while also validating that the correct process has been carried out in accordance with that specified within the 787 Structural Repair Manual (SRM) thus achieving reliable and conforming repairs.

The quality assurance inspectors course is workshop based with a substantial level of hands-on repair activitie to thoroughly appreciate the details of repair deployment. The central focus is upon SRM compliance and application, such techniques use the Double Vacuum Bag Debulk (DVD), Quick Composite Repair (QCR) processes, bolted and traditional composite repairs processes.

This course aims to:

  • to provide a knowledge of the composite repair facility, material storage requirementsmaterials, equipment, repairs and cure applications specified in the 787 aircraft.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge to understand bonded, bolted and complex787 SRM composite repair processes.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge and practical skills required to carry outeffective repairs to structural composites and bonded structures for the 787 aircraft.
  • to provide the delegates with the appropriate experience of vacuum baggingrequirements, cure cycles and TC placement as set out in the 787 SRM.
  • to equip the delegate with the knowledge to perform an inspection using the RampDamage Checker.
  • to provide the delegates with the experience to assess damage using the 787 structuralrepair manual (SRM).
  • to satisfy all the relevant quality assurance and safety requirements.
