Brochure A380 Door Modification


Published on

An unusual sound from a Singapore Airlines passenger door in 2014 led the Federal Aviation Administration to publish an airworthiness directive (Airworthiness Directive - AD) for all Airbus A380 machines that were already in operation: All 16 passenger doors have to be subsequently reinforced. The structure repair crew travels to the maintenance company authorised by Airbus and modifies the A380 machines on-site during their downtime.

  2. 2. 2 3STRUCTURE REPAIR CREW A380 DOOR MODIFICATIONSTRUCTURE REPAIR CREW A380 DOOR MODIFICATION ARTS supports you in implementing structural modifications under Airbus A380 Service Bulletins No.A380-52-(8079 up to 8094, 8122 up to 8131) On 5 January, 2014, the crew of a Singapore Airlines A380 interrupted the flight from London to Singapore, diverting to Baku for an emergency landing due to a loss of pressure and an unusual noise from a passenger door. The Federal Aviation Administration subsequently published an Airworthiness Directive (AD) for all A380 aircraft in service (MSN up to 0165): operators of these full double-deck aircraft were required to apply a retrospective modification to the sixteen passenger doors in accordance with AD No.: 2014-0253. Airbus reacted with Service Bulletins for all passenger doors on the A380. All affected airlines are required to complete the required maintenance by 2020. The worldwide available ARTS Structure Repair Crew has already supported various Airbus certified maintenance companies in the A380 door modification. Thus, ARTS knows the qualitative requirements imposed by the Service Bulletin, the general Structure Repair Manual (SRM) and the Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM).

  4. 4. In accordance with Airworthiness Directive AD 2014-0253, stress tests revealed fractures in the main deck doors and upper deck doors of the A380. In order to prevent forma- tion of micro-fractures, structural reinforcements are incorporated. In this process, our experts remove and modify all A380 passenger doors.

  5. 5. A380 door modification is performed by our Structure Repair Crew. After the door is removed from the Airbus A380 and placed it in the jig, our technical experts work on the door modification. While observing all applicable standards (SRM, AMM, IPC, 80-T, TA) the Service Bulletins are systematically implemented step by step. Our Structure Repair Crew removes the door insulation, then dismantles the cover plates, the cover mechanism assembly and seals and, then prepares the door for modification. After your employees have removed the paintwork, the ARTS Structure Repair Crew resumes work and removes the old structural components from the doors. A Special Detailed Inspection (SDI) is performed using High-frequency Eddy Current (HFEC). This is carried out 8 9 by our NDT auditor, who is certified according to EN 4179 standard. If a thorough inspection of the doors does not reveal any irregularities, our technical experts proceed with the next process steps. During the flap peening and cold working steps in the process, our technical experts re-shape the surfaces and thus remove the symptoms of fatigue from the struc- tural components. Until reinforcement parts are finally installed, they are laid onto the doors and provisionally attached using fixation pins. After approval of the quality assurance and paintwork, our Structure Repair Crew installs the cover plates, cover mechanism assemblies, door seals, door components and insulation.
