    General Aviation Composite Repair

    <p>The General Aviation Composite Repair Course was originally conceived as a manufacturer-specific Cessna repair course devoted specifically to the Columbia, Cessna Corvalis and TTx airframes.It is approved by Cessna, and was initially designed as an airframe specific course for Cessna Service Center repair technicians, mechanics, supervisors, and quality assurance personnel directly involved in providing high performance repairs on these advanced composite structures. It is still a Cessna approved course, meeting the requirements of both the initial and recurrent training required to perform Composite Structural Repair on the Textron Aviation Models LC40-550FG (300), LC41-550FG (400), LC42-550FG (350) and T240. Likewise, many General Aviation piston-engine aircraft from other manufacturers use similar resin and fiber systems and structural repair techniques.Technicians repairing other types of GA airframes will also benefit from this training.The principles of properly performing a good composite structural repair broadly apply to these airframes too, and the detailed differences will be discussed in class.</p>
