Aerostructures for Boeing 787
We designed and build composite horizontal stabilizer and fuselage sections 44 and 46
As a Boeing strategic risk sharing partner, we develop and manufacture about a 14% share of 787’s airframe: the horizontal stabilizer at its Foggia plant, both central fuselage sections at its innovative plant in Grottaglie through “one piece barrel” advanced technology, plus frames, shear-ties in Pomigliano D’Arco and metal alloy machined parts in Nola.
The Dreamliner is built with a record 50% composite materials by weight. Currently the 787 wide body family is composed by the 787-8 able to carry up to 242 passengers, the stretched 787-9 model carrying up to 290 passengers on routes up to 7,600 NM and also the latest double stretched 787-10, carrying up to 330 passengers.
