Looks at the increasing use of composites in aircraft manufacture and how this will affect UK workshops’ capabilities when such structures need repair and/or overhaul. Believes there is opportunity here for in‐house maintenance providers, as the airlines seem slow at taking the required skills and facilities on board. Examines the successful operation of FLS Aerospace's composite shop. Puts forward the view that nowadays lack of a modern composite workshop compromises a maintenance company's ability to maintain large, modern commercial aircraft.
