A ceremony took place to mark the delivery of the first ailerons to Airbus for the A350-1000.

TAI delivers first set of A350-1000 ailerons to Airbus

Turkish Aerospace Industries Inc. (TAI) made its first delivery of A350-1000 aileron set to Airbus in a ceremony held at TAI's facilities on 03 November 2015. It was the result of a contract that was signed nearly two years ago as an addition to the contract for A350-900 Program between the two companies.

The Airbus A350 XWB aircraft is a new family of Long Range Wide Body Jet Airliner developed by Airbus. The A350 XWB is the first AIRBUS aircraft with both fuselage and wing structures made primarily of carbon fiber reinforced polymer.

The aileron is a critical control surface which is assembled to the wing of A350-1000 aircraft. As being a part of the wing, the component was designed and manufactured mainly from carbon fiber material entirely at TAI's facilities. As a risk sharing partner for the A350 Family, with the first delivery of the A350-1000 aileron set, TAI accomplished yet another important milestone, contributing to the success of the program.

By looking at the overall Airbus – TAI relationship, in addition to the above mentioned achievement, the A400M, A330 (Rudder) and A320 Family programs should also be underlined in this respect. All programs are on the serial and ramp up phase and deliveries are being performed as per schedule.

All of these successes demonstrate the fact that AIRBUS and TAI strategic partnership carries potential to grow even further.

As aviation grows to meet the travel needs and business demands, Airbus designs new state of the art aircraft as per customers' requirements with the support from the strategic partners. As such, TAI, a strategic partner is continuously increasing its methods, procedures and engineering capabilities in order to contribute to more sophisticated Airbus' components.
