We deliver the first C295 rear fuselage Ireland version

On March 10, ALESTIS delivers the first aircraft for the Irish government to AIRBUS DS. This delivery has been a challenge, since undertaking a new version, incorporating all the changes that it entails, entails additional difficulties in its manufacture for all team members: from the supply of new components by production and supply control chain, the complete completion of all technical production documentation by engineering, the difficulties for production to undertake an assembly for the first time, until the assurance of all quality requirements. The coordination and professionalism of the team throughout the process have been decisive for a particularly successful:

The coordination and professionalism of the team throughout the process have been decisive for obtaining a particularly successful result:

  • Operational gate: Green

  • Component faults: 0

  • Pending work: 0

  • Quality indicators: On target.

  • Costs: On target.

What's new in this version?

The main novelties that this version of the C295 incorporates, configured especially for maritime surveillance missions and that have posed an additional challenge for our team are:

  • New LIDAR cartographic photography system.

  • It is equipped with the Fully Integrated Tactical System (FTIS)

  • It incorporates specific state-of-the-art sensors and Collins AEROSPACE PRO-line Fusion avionics.

This joint effort has been expressly recognized by the client:

"The delivery conditions have been, if possible, more extreme due to the Lidar System that it incorporates, which has also meant the modification of 90% of the antennas that ALESTIS makes".

"As a team we have been able to implement PCP 315, which affected flight safety, outside of what would be its nominal process and in record time."

Any additional relevant information?

In addition, ALESTIS also incorporates very relevant changes in the manufacturing process:

  • Incorporates PCP315 in-flight safety mod parts.

  • It modifies 90% of the antennas that are installed in the fuselage.

  • The structure is the result of the combination of the conical panels of the Canadian version and a cylindrical structure from Oman.

This is how the client recognizes it:

"New elementals have been industrialized without impacting the ALESTIS assembly line and ensuring timely delivery to the Tablada plant".

The next challenge: the planes of India
