QAF manufactures and ships flight safety critical part
QAF manufactured and shipped the first 10 ship sets of Hub and Blades in April 2013, to a domestic customer [owned by the SAFRON Group] who is the prime contractor for the entire RAT system.
The Blade is classified as a flight safety critical part. With QAF’s specialized manufacturing techniques and processes, we were successful in forging the Blade to an almost finished [NET] configuration – it will only require minimal overall machining to achieve final part configuration.
The potential demand for the KC390 is approximately 700 a/c, which equates to 1400 Blades and 700 Hubs.
