DALLAS, 27 Aug. 2015. Advantage Aviation Technologies (AAT) is introducing its Boeing 737 Canoe Fairing Shaft Reamer repair kit, a self-contained, portable tooling solution system designed to provide efficient front and rear bushing removal and installation of canoe fairing shaft on tarmac or in hanger for scheduled or as needed maintenance.
Boeing 737 canoe fairing bushings, located on the front and back of the Canoe Fairings, are subject to corrosion and wear during flight operations. Once the canoe fairings are removed, the kit allows efficient bushing removal and reaming and straightening of base metal back to CMM specifications. Average work time has been determined to be less than four hours, officials say.
“The AAT Reamer Kit eliminates the associated third party costs and scheduling of this repair,” says Glenn Mayberry, director of sales, AAT. “This is a time and cost saving solution that provides aircraft maintenance departments an immediate solution to effectively remove, ream, repair, and reinstall the canoe fairing bushings and base metal.”
The 35-piece precision tooled Reamer Kit is housed in a transportable, protective case with high-density foam storage tool inserts. AAT can design and build reamer tooling kits for virtually any aircraft.
