AVS-SYS, the composite design engineering company, is introducing a new range of ultra-lightweight composite parts and components for aircraft, including specialist aerospace ducting.

rts will not only save operators money but will reduce the overall environmental impact of the aircraft as well.

AVS-SYS has over a decade of experience and expertise in both design and the integration of Low Pressure Air Distribution systems for passenger aircraft. The firm initially designed its carbon composite parts for use in the rigid ducting within such systems but it quickly became apparent that this material technology can be used in a variety of other applications, such as galley panels, ceilings and other interior fitments.

The new products are up to 40% lighter than equivalent parts currently in use. This weight saving is delivered without any loss in fit, form or function and parts are manufactured to all relevant aerospace standards. It is estimated that in a narrow body aircraft, use of the new ducts in the Air Distribution System would save up to 60kg in weight, with significant reductions in fuel burn and therefore cost and environmental impact over the full lifecycle of the aircraft.
