Client: AAI / ACL Technologies & BA
Project value: £5M
Completion: March 2000
AAI Corporation was founded in 1950 and are a global corporation providing a vast array of innovative aerospace and defence technologies. They are a manufacturer of aviation ground support equipment for hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical, and electrical components supporting military and commercial aircraft.
DHP jointly developed a design brief with British Airways and AAI for the construction of six individual pneumatic and power generation test rigs at their Heathrow maintenance facility. This element of the project was part of a larger scheme to relocate BA's maintenance operations away from leased airport based buildings to an off site purpose built facility, achieving reduced operational costs and greater efficiencies in turn around time for aviation repairs and testing.
